Great, unique flavors made daily. Perfect for hot day while strolling down downtown. Creamy gelato combos to your hearts content (you can mix flavors if you want).

We went here 4 times in a week, I would have gone daily if I could have! I also had the espresso shot over espresso gelato, thought I died and went to heaven.

We stopped in after dinner after walking around downtown Venice. The gelato is excellent. They sell it in three sizes. The larger the size, the more flavors you can add to a serving. Very refreshing. I ordered the small Amaretto flavor and an Almond Joy that were delicious and sufficient. Samples were provided on request. Definitely worth the visit.

Ciao Gelato has many gelato's to taste and enjoy. Have to say I have been to Italy and these definitely compare to Gelato purchased in Italy. Enjoy a dinner in one of our many downtown restaurants then go to Ciao Gelato for your desert.

Every time we go to Venice we stop here for a scoop. Yesterday I had the peanut butter gelato and it was amazing . It's not busy this time of year so we had no problem getting a table outside...so nice and relaxing.
