Meals aren't complete without dessert. So after that heavy meal from Kuroda - we went to look for dessert, we ended up in this Gelato Place. We tried the following flavors: Pistachio, Hazelnut, Green Tea, Tiramisu, Cheesecake.

I think I will stick with Ice creams. I find Gelatos too sweet 128524

Combination of toast bread topped with white chocolate cream and pistachio gelato.
The gelato was nutty and smooth on each spoonful. thick and creamy, doesn't melt that fast while the toasted bread was just okay nothing special on it. (They should put more scoop of gelato) The service was good though.

I have seen a handful of posts and reviews about this gelato place in Venice Grand Canal Mall. I got very curious when I found out that one cup of three scoops only cost PHP120. Three scoops of gelato for less than two hundred bucks? I was sold! But it took me a while to visit this place as the famous and green Grand Canal could be very crowded with… selfie sticks. But after having lunch at Nihonkai Tsukiji, we decided to hunt for more Pokemon and ended up in the newest tourist destination in Manila. Since we were already there, I figured that I should swing by and try Chiara’s.

Hello, Chiara’s.

The place was packed when I visited on a Sunday afternoon. The gelato store’s area is quite small and gets too crowded once five or six customers are inside. They do have al fresco area though in front of the store. I really wouldn’t mind dining outside if only it wasn’t so humid that day.

After sampling a few flavors, I decided to go with a Small Cup (PHP120) with Pistachio, Strawberry and Hazelnut. It all made sense to me when they handed my order. It was a tiny cup with sorbetes size scoops. Nonetheless, you could not get three gelato flavors at this price.

I went outside and quickly took snapshots of my cold treat. It was challenging to capture a nice shot of it as it wasn’t as photogenic as I pictured.

After a while, I took a spoonful of each flavor. And sadly, none made a lasting impression. I vaguely remembered hazelnut which reminded me of Ferrero Rocher.

Overall, despite it being affordable, I felt that I didn’t get my money’s worth.

Coffee gelato in your hand with the grand canal view will definitely make your day.
After our morning dance rehearsals, me and my friend decided to pass through Venice Piazza since it is very humid outside. We stopped to take some pictures because it looks like they just cleaned the canal, and then I saw this Gelato and Cake shop. We were looking at the menu inside undecided what to get when a crew approached us, he gave us the menu and offered for us to sit while he take the orders. We ordered 2 of the bestsellers, the Foresta Nera - P220 and Coppa del Nonno - P220. Not your typical overpriced Italian resto, this one is quite affordable for the tastes that they offer. I personally enjoyed the brutti ma buoni with coffee gelato, its like a meringue cookie with chewy nuts inside. The place is quaint and cozy but not too spacious inside. You can sit outside with the grand canal view if its not too humid or raining. I'll go back to try their Toasted Bread + Gelato. 128077

Grand canal view with gelato in your hand? Perfect! We walked around Venice Piazza lokking for desserts plus also to see the grand canal mall. We ended up at Chiara's 127846127847

3 scoops of Gelato only costs Php 120. They have wide assortments of desserts but gelato really caught my eye! 127846

We ordered:
Strawberry, Pistacchio and Chocolate; 1108811088110881108811088
• I love how realistic the taste of strawberry which really a bit sour. Pistacchio and chocolate is a great compination!
Tiramisu, Dark Chocolate and Pistacchio; 11088110881108811088
• Tiramisu was awesome! Dark chocolate, not really my kind of chocolate. Pistacchio is really good!

Maybe one day you want to have that "turista" shot at Grand Canal Mall, Venice Piazza, drop-by Chiara's 128588🏼

Chiara's Pastry  is the new gelato joint to grace the newest foodie destination in the Metro.  I've never heard of them till now.  It's hot and humid,  a gelato break seems appropriate.

Ciara's is a quiant dessert shop located at the ground floor of Venice Grand Canal.   They specialise in handcrafted gelato and dessert toasts.   It was half full when i visited.  The inside houses three tables and it is quite crowded.  Customers may dine al fresco via the tables outside. 

I was pleasantly surprised that the prices are easy on the wallet.  A small cup with three scoops only costs php 120.  There were limited choices of flavors though.  I picked the following flavors:

| Yogurt.   This is my favourite among the two.  Well,  biased opinion as I like yogurt.  The texture is smooth and it feels like i am eating yogurt,  except it is gelato form.

| Strawberry.  Mediocre.  Flavor is good but lacks the wow factor.  It goes well with the yogurt variant though.  I made it a point to scoop half and half.  Voila,  strawberry yogurt!

| Pistachio.   This pale green hued gelato maybe easy on the eyes but it packs a punch.   Smooth and nutty on each spoonful.   

Overall, i enjoyed their frozen treats and i feel so responsible that i only spent php 120 for a cup of gelato

To complete the Italian experience, we stopped by Chiara's for some dessert. The place was just beside Toni and Sergio. Though they are still in their Soft Opening, the crew were very cordial enough to let us in and try their gelato flavors. Those that were available and I've tried during our visit are the ff.

1.) Hazelnut
2.) Yogurt - Has a sour taste similar to a greek yogurt
3.) Vanilla
4.) Tiramisu - Coffee like flavor
5.) Ricotta

For an amount of Php 120, they will allow you to pick 3 flavors for your small cup. I chose the Tiramisu, Ricotta and Yogurt. Even though the cup was small, their scoops are big enough and is worth the price comparing to other ice cream shops.

Aside from the gelato, my friend tried their Panna Cotta with Coffee (their bestseller according to one of their servers). The panna cotta was firm and not too sweet just good enough to cleanse our palate from all the pizza and pasta goodness that we had for dinner.

Chiara's is an Italian dessert shop located right by the Venice canal and the malls own love lock bridge. We don't normally go here as were mostly worried about the tourists obsessing over the canal. But at 2pm on a weekday, we were lucky enough to have the place almost to ourselves.

For a gelato place, they only have 10 flavors and a very small display chiller. I didn't ask if they change them periodically or just offer the same variety. They have a display of cakes on the side and serve coffee too.

Our gelato was pretty good. They were very creamy, not icy, not foamy. According to the server their strawberry is a bit sour because they use real strawberries. However I didn't see any seeds on them, so not sure how they used real ones. The pistachio was really good too. But, no nuts in my scoop. Bummer. My favorite was the ricotta with caramelized figs! It only said ricotta on the display, I had to guess what it was and confirm it with the server. My toddler got all vanilla and she was able to finish a whole cup. I didn't bother to try the other flavors.

They use a small scooper, I love that you can choose 3 kinds even for the small cup, 120/cup.

Their vanilla caffeine-free frappe was so disappointing at 160. It had more milk than gelato, super malabnaw. At least it wasn't icy. But my son was not happy at all. He was hoping his order of a "shake" would yield more ice cream for him. Guess we're not coming back for that.

We sat right outside their store, though they also have tables right by the canal. We were lucky enough to enjoy the cool air conditioning coming out from the mall doors right beside the shop. Luckier that there were barely any people passing by.

They had about 6-8 employees inside. I wonder why they need so many. I like the white doors of Chiara's. I've never heard of this place before and Google told me this is the 2nd branch after their original in Century Mall. Their design here in Venice is better than the first one, I think.

We visited Venice just for the ice cream. Left right after one round of walking around the canal. Parking was easy, but can be confusing because of the on-going construction.

PS. No flying pests here unlike Uptown!127881

Thanks Ruth S for the reco9786

Right after dinner at Toni & Sergio, I suggested we try this place out. Italian dessert after our Italian dinner! 128521128076🏼

Just like Toni & Sergio, the space inside is just small with around 3 tables. But again, if you're not maarte, you can sit outside and appreciate the view of the sky and the grand canal (and the CROWD!!! 128530).

They have different types of desserts available but I wanted to try just the gelato first.

They have 2 options available:

Small Cup: 3 flavors (cup/cone) - 120pesos
Large Cup: 5 flavors (cup/cialda) - 200pesos

The choices are not that much - around 12 flavors only. They have Vanilla, Mint, Hazelnut, Chocolate, Strawberry, Straticiella???, Rhum, Tiramisu, Extra Dark, Latte, Pistachio, and Latte.

Since they allow customers to try the flavors first which is a good thing because we get to really choose what we want. 128077🏼 I initially wanted the pistachio but the amount of gelato left is not enough to be considered as one scoop but since ate was nice, she let me still try it. And it was good that I even asked another free taste because there were still some left hihi. They may have seen how much I liked it that they gave me the remaining pistachio for free making our order 6 flavors -- Extra Dark, Tiramisu, Caffe, Hazelnut, Straticiella???, and Pistachio!!! 128513128513128513

The gelato was just okay. Thick and creamy. Doesn't melt that fast. But nothing extra special. I'll choose Caramia over this. 128517

The cialda (flower bowl kind of cone) was good, it was just a bit hard to eat. Since it's only for dine in, best to ask for a container to put it in since it's messy to eat. 128521

The okay flavors are the Extra Dark, Hazelnut and Pistachio. 128077🏼

And lastly, the service was excellent. Everyone was warm, nice, and friendly (and generous haha!!!). 128513128525128541128521

3 flavors = 1 scoop
5 flavors = 2 scoops

Gelato: 3 stars
Service: 4 stars
