Cool selection and great fruit flavors for sure! I had an incredible pear gelato in a small for only 2 Euro. Cute spot right near a canal frequented by gondolas

We tried different places and La Mela Verde is the best one, good price and really delicious! You will pay chip for a big scoop. Pistachio is popular but Hazelnut and Lemon also are amazing.

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 ;)
