lemon is lush! - Edit

There were about 7 flavours of vegan sorbet when I visited, all clearly labelled with green tags. Some interesting ones like cinnamon, rose and green tea. I played it safe with strawberry / lemon / pear 3 scoops for €3.50. The strawberry was nice, lemon was delicious & pear didn't really taste of anything. This sorbet was ok but I liked SuSo (also in Venice) better for vegan gelato

Pros: choice of flavours

Cons: only fruit flavours vegan

Some very unusual flavours - Edit

Small and friendly. A wide variety of flavours with the majority on the unusual side. I'm not sure that I'd have rocket and orange as a gelato flavour again but I'm glad I did.

Sorry but vegan sorbet is not gelato - Edit

I was so disappointed to find that they only have vegan sorbet and not vegan gelato. The reviews were misleading as I was expecting soy or almond milk gelato.

Romance at look,Love & first taste - Edit

Just had dinner & walked about 2 minutes & found my dream to have my first vegan gelato since becoming vegan - 4 years, surprised at how many vegan options there were pretty much 50/50 between non vegan & vegan- the vegan creations sounded way more exciting! Had a blackberry & cinammon both amazing! Heaven, hit the spot. Only bad thing is i didnt have another! Tomorrow going back to sit & eat then go back & try all the flavours! A must go to for everyone

Pros: Cheap , Creative creations, Tastebud heaven

Refreshing, inspired gelato flavors - Edit

We had a lot of vegan gelato while in Italy, but Alaska stands out as the most memorable and unique experience. The owner can point out the vegan options and knew that the cones were also vegan. I had a combo of rose, mint, and blackberry, but there were a number of other equally interesting vegan options (I had a taste of my partner's celery gelato and it was surprisingly good.) All three flavors were terrific, but the rose really stood out. The taste of the gelato is hard to describe, but the best I can do is to say that it tasted homemade in the best possible way, with fresh ingredients. It was really light and airy, too--very refreshing for a hot day. A must for any vegan (or non vegan looking for something different) in Venice.

Pros: vegan gelato , creative flavors, simply delicious

I read the reviews first, but... - Edit

But I was not prepared for my vegan Rose, Mint, Celery gelato cone! The one man cringed as I ordered it, but it was such a fresh tasting treat on a hot day involving a lot of walking. Excellent, creative options that you won't find anywhere else and not heavy like regular gelato. Friendly, helpful staff. Stop in!

Pros: Creative Flavors, Easy to Find

nice, inventive gelato - Edit

One of the best gelato in Italy, Mr Pistacchi, the owner, has explained to me that all vegan flavours are made separately from the dairy based ones. Vegan flavours are not clearly labelled, but you can simply ask and you'll have a large selection to choose from. The flavours are absolutely original and inventive, such as a surprising orange-arugula, cinnamon or spicy ginger, alongside more traditional ones based on fruit. The granitas are also very good and all vegan, and are served with basil leaves. Definitely a place to try!

Pros: inventive, original flavours, friendly staff
