Why settle for one flavour when you can have three or more...I tried a triple flavour chocolate, pistachio, peanut butter. The best thing is Venice is walking friendly so it is a win - win. Friendly staff. Always grateful for small business who accept cash and credit cards.

There are no words but I'll try, best gelato ever, we had orange creams clear and the most vanilla vanilla I've ever tasted. Samples are given in case you make a mistake.

The biggest selection of flavors and they do let you try a few before making a decision. Their flavors are unusual and the staff is friendly. Gelato is always fresh. Try them.

Stopped here with friends for Gelato. We all really enjoyed our serving. The taste, quantity of Gelato, and service provided were excellent. They had a large selection of flavors as well. If you like Gelato this is a must stop place.

You will have to see for your self! It's excellent! The Salted Caramel is my Favorite!! You can taste before you buy as many flavors as you want, just keep your spoons and be sure and ask for a punch card. After so many purchases, you get a free item!
