I have to concur with many reviews that the ice cream is not as good as other places in Venice. And why I gave only an Average rating. What's great is the Soft Serve! Not only is there TONS of it on a cone, but...More

Not even close to good ice cream. After all the reviews we tried it. Won't be back, there are several places in town that are much better. Very disappointed.

Bobs never fails to deliver the best ice cream anywhere! They have the best soft serve and their real handmade ice cream is fresh and delicious. I love the coconut ice cream! This is a must stop for any one visiting Venice!

I've got a family history of diabetes, and while I'm not there yet, I really watch my sugar. Well, going out for ice cream is simply no fun anymore. Either the place doesn't have a no sugar added flavor or they only have butter pecan!...More
