My wife and I managed to locate this fine little chocolate shop. They have a very good selection of individual and packaged chocolates. The place is nicely laid out and staff were very friendly. Worth seeking out for chocolate lovers.

Walking distance from the Rialto bridge this shop has a nice selection of in-house made chocolates. Truffles were excellent & pralines too. Bought some for us to eat now & to take home as gifts.
