We make a pilgrimage to this little out-of-the-way gelateria every time we come to Venice as we think it makes the best ice cream we've tasted. Its well worth the walk. Try the celery ice cream it is quite delicious. Also rocket, pistaccio . ....More

No idea why this place turns up in so many reviews of good gelato in Venice, it's not even close to the best. possibly it's changed owner? or was having a bad day... The gelato was too runny and there were ice particles in it,...More

Followed the guide book recommendation, definitely not disappointed! Cardamom, ginger, and rocket and orange flavours were incredible. Highly recommended, especially as it's off the main tourist track.

Loved this lil shack of a gelato parlour . The owner takes great pride in his conventional and out of the box creations and we absolutely loved the turmeric and celery gelato. A treat especially when it's hot and sunny

This was our first gelato stop in Italy and it was wonderful! The pistachio was delicious! Our group also tried the chocolate and vanilla. The prices were comparable with all the other gelaterias.

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
