Reviewed 27 October 2013

Il Doge makes the best gelato on the planet. Understand, I am an ice cream addict who has tasted ice cream on many continents. We used to rank a place in Florence as the best. That was ages ago. Then I ranked those 2 outstanding competitors in Noto, Sicily as the absolute best. But Il Doge is so consistent and so creative (try their creme die doge, a candied citrus peel creation) that for my money, it is the Champion. Grom and Nicos and Paolin....meh. Move over for the new top gelateria. We went there for breakfast once. ("Why Not? Its nice!"--Borat)
I am done. the end.

“amazing ice cream”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

Ice cream fantastic here! Tried other places but Il Doge the best. Wide variety of flavours and all very good and the man who served us was nice and also he is patient when you are struggling to decide which flavour you want!

“one of the best”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Positively surprised from this gelateria, being in a quite busy place, I wasn't expecting such a high quality and reasonable prices. I tried the cremino taste (or sth like that), I was very good, proper gelato. It has a good selection of flavours and the staff was quite friendly. I'd definitely go there again!
