Very good ice cream and Fabulous view. You can sit outside on the water. The location is gorgeous and beautiful to see the sun set.

Great range of gelato and nice café lattes. Service not as friendly as it could have been though. Nice view of the water.

Nico's was recommended to us by our guide with Venice Quality Transfers. We were not disappointed. All six of us felt this was the best gelato we tried while in Venice. So good in fact, we ended up walking all the way over again before...More
