Delicious but pricey

Awesome gelato, but quite expensive for what you get! The service is fast and efficient! Only complaint is the price.

Stumbled upon this venue by chance. Saw the long queue outside and our curiosity got the better of us. What a good thing that was too. Perfectly understandable why they have won so many awards. The chocolate flavor is to die for!

As part of a Vancouver Foodie tour yesterday we visited Bella Gelateria in downtown Vancouver. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and our tasting of a trio of gelatos, their salted caramel gelato, their organic coconut milk gelato, and the chocolate sorbetto, affogato, my favourite. And remember as you eat that this gelato is the best in the world! Oh and... More

It's lucky that when my friends and I visit Bella Gelateria, there is no queue as it usually need to wait for a long time to get the yummy ice-cream! The hand-crafted ice-cream is really nice. You can choose a cup or a cone, and 1 - 3 favors. I choose the old-fashion chocolate which is awesome. Though one cone... More

Waited 30 minutes, and it was good. I don't think I'd wait 30 minutes again, but for the first visit I did and it was good. Beautiful presentation. Award winning. If the wait was 10 minutes I certainly would wait. At 10 minutes it gets 5 stars. But I hate lines and waiting, so consider the source. :-)

I can't profess to be a gelato expert by my god, this was fantastic. I had read about the place a while back but the last time I was in Vancouver there was a huge line up. This trip, I happen to walk by before the after dinner crowd and treated myself to a two flavour cone. It is not... More

I'm definitely not the master of deciding which gelato is the best but I can say I did enjoy my gelato here - my friend made us stop by at 11:30 am based on it's reputation, and there was only one other customer. I ordered the burnt caramel and stracciatella (choc chip). my friend also mentioned that they make their... More

My husband and I stopped in here for an afternoon treat after going to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. They have tons of flavours here including some very original ones. I had the salted chocolate and my husband had the mint chocolate chip. Make sure you get a hazelnut wafer to eat your gelato with! Easy to taste why the owner... More

If we walk far enough, we can usually justify stopping for some gelato. This place never disappoints. Flavors change regularly, can be sampled before you commit. The only drawback can be the lineup, which does move pretty quickly all things considered (people tasting...). Chocolate amadour cherry was great, as was the burnt caramel.

We stopped in here after we were told by the locals that this was the best gelato in town. Yes it really is the best. There are many flavors to choose from and they let you taste before choosing! The Thai coconut, salted caramel, chocolate banana and the texas pecan with sour cherries were all to die for! wish i... More
