Lovely little ice cream shop just off Zattere near the last gondola workshop in the city. Guy serving was very friendly, ice creams were delicious and very reasonably priced.

We stumble upon this little place, their gelato is the tiny but out of this world. A delicious little treat.

Took me and my friend a while to find the place, to be surprised by a very rude reception. Poor selection and place did not look very hygienic. Avoid!

We would always get lost in Venice and end up in front of this shop. The gelato is amazing, and the staff are really friendly.

My wife and I stumbled on this place while lost in Venice. The first time we were there we were taken aback by how curt the guy behind the counter was with us, despite how overly friendly he was with the two people before us....More

Ridicolous, you are talking about homophobia in a review of an ice cream shop. Congrats

We always stop here for a gelato when walking around the Dorsodoro. It's just across the canal from the gondola building/repair shop in a quiet area.

Stopping by Squero reminded me that I have a gelato addiction- only the real Italian will do. The pistachio and chocolate were both perfect. Prices reasonablr, and not as overrun with tourists as the trendiest place down the canal.

Returned here many times during my time in the city and every time had superb gelato. I found that Squero offered a wider range of flavors than other nearby gelaterias, and I believe made their gelato with higher quality ingredients, as it was far richer...More

All homemade best banana I have ever had. They have a sort of ice cream sandwich on biscotti. Yum and then more YUM.

On a return visit to Venice (last time was in October) we were looking forward to coming here again. Just as we remembered, lovely ice cream and friendly service.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
