Austin is not hurting for good gelato places, but Venezia is one of the best. It's easy to miss as it is small, but definitely worth a stop. The owners are directly from Italy.

Stumbled in after seeing a new place popping up in the neighborhood and am I ever glad we did. Rotating flavors means you need to stop in regularly to see what's new ;) Gelato so good it reminds me of my time in Sardegna!
