Went to Ruga Giuffa today because of reviews, and was very impressed. I would put it in the top 5 in Venice now. Excellent creamy texture and sharp, intense flavours. If you appreciate gelato, you owe it to yourself to try some of Ruga Giuffa’s....More

My wife and I️ along with our 11year old daughter stopped in for a mandatory mid afternoon gelato while visiting Venice on a beautiful fall afternoon. Very clean facility with good service and tasty gelato. Definitely worth a Visit!
