Just in time for the hottest months of the year, an unbelievably tasty and authentic new gelato shop has landed on South LamarVenezia is a traditional Italian gelato shop, which showcases at least 15 freshly made, handcrafted gelato flavors each day. In addition, you'll find an array of other frozen treats and authentic Italian coffees. Venezia owners and certified gelato crafters, Alice and Nicola Morello create the gelato by hand daily and are incredibly nice and easy to chat with.

In addition to its dozen-plus daily gelato offerings, Venezia’s other freshly made specialties include the whimsical Mr. Ring frozen donuts — gelato-filled, icing-covered treats formed in the shape of everyone’s favorite pastry — as well as frozen gelato lollipops, beautifully detailed pastries, made-to-order gelato cakes, real Italian espresso, American-style coffee drinks, infused teas and irresistible affogatos.

The Morellos, who received their education at the prestigious International School of Gelato in Rimini, Italy, moved from Italy to Austin specifically to open their gourmet Italian gelato parlor. They chose Texas’ capital city for its friendly community, enterprising food culture and support of small, local businesses.

Venezia’s soft, creamy gelati are carefully crafted in the same traditional Italian manner as top-quality products from gelato shops lining the streets of Venice, Italy. All of Venezia’s gelato offerings are natural - some with as much as 65 percent lower fat than traditional ice cream. There are no artificial colors or additional fat or hormones added, and many gelato selections are vegan and gluten-free. Venezia procures its ingredients from a variety of local and Italian sources, and all their products have a detailed traceable origin, further ensuring Venezia’s frozen treats and beverages feature only superior ingredients.

Venezia’s spacious and welcoming shop in South Austin evokes the feel of a classic Italian gelateria, with plenty of stylish seating, chic black-and-white décor, sleek chrome accents, fresh greenery and several oversized display cases flaunting Venezia’s enchanting dessert offerings. Stop in for friendly service and an authenticly delicious Italian treat.
