When someone says “Gianduiotto” in Venice, someone else answers “Nico”. That’s the reason why it’s hard to call this spot a hidden place in Venice, but for the same reason you can’t leave Venice before tasting one Gianduiotto on the Zattere.
Forget calories and diet because Gianduiotto is probably one of the most caloric things you will taste here. But come on, ice cream is always a good idea! What is Gianduiotto? A gianduja bar poured into a cup of whipped cream, which nowadays we would probably hashtag as #pornfood.
Nico is located on the Zattere, the panoramic boardwalk of Venice which runs from San Basilio to Punta della Dogana. Actually it’s not only a historical ice cream shop but also a bar to have aperitivo at. Even if it’s famous for the takeaway Gianduiotto, it’s a sort of a ritual to welcome the spring season through tasting this delicious ice cream and sunbathing on the Zattere.
But of course it’s good comfort food throughout the entire year.
