South Austin has welcomed a new gelato store just in time for summer. Venezia Italian Gelato opened recently at 1701 S. Lamar Blvd. (just north of Austinís Pizza). The gelateria serves a rotating selection of more than a dozen gelatos, with a few vegan options, as well as other gelato products, like chocolate-covered gelato bars, and coffee drinks. Venezia is open noon to 10 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, noon to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday and noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday
