Hands down best gelato in Venice. I didn’t think there would be any difference between places but this was the best experience of the trip. Highly recommend!

I just wasted the calories at the other gelato places. This is the place! You can really taste the freshness of the fruit and the quality of the cream. It was hard not to go more than one an afternoon.

There is lots of poor, factorymade ice cream in Venice, and many places that call themselves artisinal. This is the real deal. If you care about real gelato rapture, make your way here.

Superb gelato, we went every day for four days. My youngest sons favourite was the Easter special, nuts biscuits and chocolate. What will we do without it?!

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

My GELATO is made daily with fresh high-quality ingredients like milk, fresh fruit, pistachios from Sicily, Piedmont hazelnuts IGP, vanilla bourbon and the best cocoa blends for a fantastic dark chocolate. Every single product is choose and selected to offer the best high-quality GELATO, this is my prerogative and the secret of my success. Enjoy it ;)
