Wonderful, wonderful gelato. Our hotel staff recommended this place for gelato two years ago. We visited several times two years ago. We visited several times on our latest trip to Venice. Still wonderful. Worth searching for.

Oh my goodness, the gelato here was the nicest I've ever tasted!! It was so good we went nearly everyday during our Venice trip! The flavours were outstanding and the smooth creamy gelato was a thing of beauty.

After all day walking around beautiful Venice I had a short break at La Mela Verde. Was worth stopping as ice creams (pistacchio + hazelnut) were really amazing!!! Good selection of flavours!

La Mela Verde's gelato is great! The flavors of the two cones we had, lemon and grapefruit, were absolutely superior. The lemon was not a cqrunchy, icy lemon gelato as is usual. Instead it was more of a creamy ice cream with little chucks of cookie with a smooth yet still lemony flavor. The grapefruit was delicious, tart yet still... More

This is a tiny ice cream shop with no seating inside or outside. Although there are table outside, they belong to the neighbouring shop and their staff quickly move on the ice cream eaters, as does the man in the antiques shop next door who objects to anyone standing in front of his window. So the neighbours aren't welcoming, but... More

If only we'd have found this place sooner - delicious gelato in a nutella crepe - holy moly! I'd rate this as the best tasting dessert I've ever tasted!

We had a big crepe covered in Nutella, shaped into a cone and filled with banana ice cream and topped with fresh cream. Gorgeous. What more can I say except that we're going back!

I honestly think we stopped in every day we were in Venice. The gelato was excellent. The flavors were unique, not what you'll get elsewhere. We really enjoyed it and kept going back for more!

Not the easiest gelateria to found but so worth the walk and getting lost. The gelato is amazing. I had the vanilla gelato and it was the best .

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
