La Mela Verde is what gelato is all about. The pistachio hilarity is especially fine. If you are up for something really tasty, this is your place.

We stopped by for gelato on a hot afternoon in May. We both had a single scoop cone of lemon for 2 euro each. Lemon gelato was excellent, service was quick and efficient and price pretty much in the norm. Definitely worth the detour!

I've tried 3 places in the last two days, and this place stands out as particularly good. I had the chocolate and the pistachio, and shared with my wife. The chocolate was very nice... rich and wonderful. The pistachio was much better than Gelatto Alaska,...More

After walking 30 mins to find this restaurant we were shocked to find the lack of flavours and they had stopped serving crepes after 7pm. Which was very disappointing.

If you are in Venice, make the effort to find la Mela Verde and try their ‘limoncello’ gelato. It is unbelievably delicious. Never tasted anything like this before.

I always go out of my way to pay a visit (or 3) to La Mela Verde whenever I'm in Venice. It really does have the best gelato in Venice.

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.

Delicious. Best gelato we had in Venice. I had a hazelnut and star cookie one which was excellent!!!

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

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 ;)
