Excellent gelato (the tiramasu mousse outstanding), the best of the many we've tried in Venice. Nice friendly service to go with it.

“Great value, quality gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

A 1.50 euro gelato from il Doge became a daily occurrence on our Venice break. Situated in Campo Santa Margherita, we passed il Doge each day on our way to/from the attractions of Rialto/San Marco and our hotel. My wife had a particular soft spot for the Nutella gelato, but I can also vouch for the lemon and cherry options. This place is proof that the quality is best away from the tourist hotspots.

“Delicious gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

I admit - I came here twice in one day! But for €1.50 for gelato why wouldn't you?!

I tried both the hazelnut and the dark chocolate flavours and both were divine! The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, and there is a wide selection of flavours to choose from. I believe they also make crepes, but I didn't get around to trying them! Would definitely recommend if you're in the Campo S Margherita area of Venice.

“Simply the BEST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

I have traveled extensively through Italy and have eaten my fair share of gelato here in the states. This is absolutely the best I have ever had and in the magic city of Venice. Per i miei amici italiani, mi è piaciuto molto il nocciolo.
