I'm glad we went to this Gelateria because it is so acclaimed but it wasn't the best I've ever had. It could be that we were there at the end of the evening, and a few of the flavors were "end scraps" or maybe we didn't choose well. It just seemed expensive, and even at 11pm there was a 20... More

This place became one of my favourite places in Vancouver. I've been there already a lot of times and tried a few different flavours. When you get there you can choose if you want 1,2 or 3 flavours and if you want a cone or cup. I always to cone. For some people 9.25 for gelato (3 flavour, cone) may... More

The ice-cream here is the best i've ever tasted. They have loads of awards and flavours. People line up everyday for this stuff. That says it all.

Our first visit had us standing in line for 40mins, the gelato was very well made and tasty, strong flavours. A couple of the flavours we tried were not a hit with me but that is a personal preference as there was nothing wrong with them. We did go back a second time, this time a little after opening so...

The line was a half block long but it was well worth it! The Bella Gelateria & Gelato had the best Gelato since I was to Spain and Italy in 2012! The three flavors I tasted were incredible! Smooth as silk! YUM! YUM! Too bad I had to leave Vancouver and go home to New Jersey! I will miss this... More

We waited around 30min line on a Friday night it was beautiful weather so we did not mind the wait. Once ordered we unanimously agreed this was the best Gelato ever and the flavors were very unique and delicious. When in Vancouver it is a must do place for dessert

Voted the best gelato. It is heavenly. Pricey, about six bucks for a scoop, long line but totally woth it. Some unusual flavor like buko pandan (from the philippines), rosewater, mango etc. We came 2 nights in a row. My fave: toasted pecan and belgian brownies.

Hype at its best. Hype is what it is. Horribly disappointed with this place. I strongly believe that if there was no line-up when people dropped by, 70% of the folks would say Bella is simply meh to ok at best. It's a classic case of sh eep following sh eep mentality and those with very high tolerances. We went... More

If you like gelato or sorbet do check this place out. Do not worry about the long line - it moves quickly. On any given day in summer you have about 20 varieties to choose from, all made from local products and the owner's secret recipe. I can see why this gelato has been named the best in the world.
