I never met a serving of Gelato I didn't like anywhere in Italy. I dont' know how someone could figure out the "best". If you see a shop, feel like having one, just DO IT!!! Trust me, you can't go wrong.

I agree with Suze, but I do remember Paolin for fruit flavors. The most I will admit to is two in one day.

I agree..I never had a bad or mediocre gelato in Venice. But we did frequent the one just to the left of San Marco church...don't remember the name.

Thanks for all your replies. Last time we were in Italy, ran into some mediocre shops in Rome and Florence so that's the reason for the question of "best". WSill try the two that were suggested

Thanks happytrvlr. We are picky gelato eaters, having run our own gelato store in the states. We think we know the difference between good and mediocre.

In my opinion the best is at the Gelateria il Doge in Santa Margherita. Beyond words. If you do a search under "gomiki trip report" it will give directions. (I'm sorry I don't know how to link it for you).

Have a wonderful time and please do a report for us . I love Venice.

Which ones have the "artisanale" stuff and which has the mass-produced stuff?

Where does gelato originate, Tuscany?

We wren't too impressed with Nico, but preferred the shop round the corner up the little canal nearby - can't remember the name, I'm afraid, but it's on a corner near (next to ?) the wine shop. Just about opposite the gondala repair yard, from what I remember.

Look for signs touting "nostra produzione" (sorry for poor spelling. This means they make it themselves.
Is the wine shop Cantina Gia Schiavi?
