South Austin has a new frozen sweets contender with Venezia. The cafe focuses on Italian gelato, alongside coffee and ever-portable doughnuts on a stick. Even better: the ice cream shop is open from noon to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and even later on the weekends until midnight for your post-dinner dessert cravings.

The standard gelato array is available, from chocolate, tiramisu, pistachio, to strawberry. There’s also the curious-sounding Ice Cream Kiss. The menu also includes customizable cakes, pastries and parfaits. Plus, guests can buy Italian products like olive oil and Amarena cherries.

The cafe opened in late April on 1701 South Lamar. Owners Nicola and Alice Morella moved to the city from Italy. Nearby ice cream shops include the relocated Lick on South Lamar and Dolce Neve on South First. For more Austin gelato, there are Gemelii, Teo Espresso, and Dolce Vita.
