Great ice cream, with brilliant choice of flavours. Favourite is stracciatella - good location to eat on a sunny day, overlooking the canal and Gondola stop.

My wife and I live to sample gelato wherever we travel and this place was mediocre at best. We went here based on the great reviews and were disappointed on the first visit. We went back again just to be sure and we're disappointed again. The gelato was very bland and the server just hustled you out the door as... More

We were recommended the Mela Verde by our apartment owner, and it didn't disappoint. Clean, bright, pleasant ice cream shop in a lovely location. Lots of delicious different flavours such as the namesake Mela Verde-green apple, or tiramisu, cherry and almond, amaretti, pink grapefruit! It's obviously very popular as we visited late one evening and they'd sold out of some... More

On a warm day looking around Venice a gelato stop is obligatory. Mela Verde came recommended & it didn't disappoint. It's a little out of the way of the main sights, but worth the extra walk. I tasted the pistachio, lime, basil & mint, plus the dark chocolate. All of which were delicious.

We tried the Pistacchio, Nutella, and Pera (Pear) and all of them were fresh and amazing. Great staff and great gelato experience, great to have on a beautiful sunny day in Venice!

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 ;)

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the 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 strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
