No matter where you eat your meal in Venice, bypass their dessert menu and head for Ciao. Always a wide choice of flavors, although my go-to is the 'dreamsicle' flavor. Local owners who find great employees. Forget the diet just once and try it!More

Great Gelato and displayed the same way it is in Italy. Right in downtown Venice on Venice Ave, which I've come to know as RESTAURANT ROW. Several Italian restaurants, all good. Ciao Gelato has the perfect authentic dessert.More

You've got to stop here. Can't decide, they'll give you samples. Keep your shovel though for your choice. Super clean place, just flat great.

Well worth the wait for this creamy, flavorful ice cream. We love walking there after dinner. We have to stay in the air conditioning if it's summertime. Great flavors and local kids employed.

This boutique shop serves some of the best homemade & freshly made gelato we've every tasted. Skip the other (excellent) ice cream shop choices, choose this shop.

We were checking out shops near Venice Beach and stumbled upon this gem. Best gelato will return when visiting the area again.

Best Gelato here in Florida. Great selection of flavors. My favorite is to mix a couple of different flavors for my own unique experience.
