Description: In the eastern corner of the Campo Santa Margherita square, it is run by two cousinswho make their own seasonal gelatos and ices, and it has to be one of the the very best gelaterias in Venice! Read your forum for more on this one.

We read the trip advisor reviews after stumbling across this Gelateria. One of the two owners was serving and I went with the house special. It was fantastic, although incredibly calorific!
Find this place and enjoy.

There are a lot of gelaterias throughout Venice; most seem to be chains and akin to maybe going to Pizza Hut when you really want Chicago style pizza. Il Doge looked and tasted like an honest to goodness gelato shop that makes gelato fresh daily, and in flavors that aren't the same pistachio, chocolate, lemon or tiramisu that everyone else serves. We were staying at an apartment nearby and we had gelato here a few times, and had flavors like licorice, dark chocolate chili, orange chocolate, and frutta di bosca - all amazing!

This was a great find "close to home" and I would highly recommend bypassing all those chains in favor of Il Doge!

Stumbled across this place and were really delighted with our encounter. Great choice of flavours, rich and creamy gelato.
So good we went back again the next day so I could try the gianduitto which is their Baci with whipped cream and chic sauce.
Nice setting by the canal in a little square where you can watch the gondolas go past. What's not to love?

I can't explain how delicious these ice creams were! My family of four all had two scoops each and we loved them - really good quality, creamy ice cream with a large variety of flavours. A lovely destination as well, we sat outside on a bench in the square. Can't recommend it enough!! Definitely worth the visit.

Slightly off the beaten track but this icecream shop is worth seeking out, very fresh flavours and generous scoops.
