I don't even like ice cream/gelato.

I've never been one for cold desserts, but the gelato here is magnificent. I had the lavender earl grey flavour and I haven't stopped thinking about it since I had it a few days ago. Definitely check it out if you're in the area!

We were recommended to try this place but every time we went there was a long line. Somehow managed to go inside and ask to taste a couple of flavours. WOW there was one with saffron which blew me away. It was only a tiny sample spoon but I was left wanting more. To order meant going to the back... More

Easy access for guests of Fairmont Pacific Rim / or / Waterfront ... just a short walk for Pinnacle Harbourside Hotel or any inbetween ... Fabulous flavors (ever changing) ... and truly delicious silky smooth gelato. Tasting spoons are offered for those with indecision ... served with a smile!

While visiting Vancouver stumbled across this great little gelateria and found it to be so good, I went back a couple of times in as many days. Great little stop to pick up your favourite gelato or dive into one of their unique flavours. The hosts are happy to let you enjoy a free sample before making your choice. It's... More

We heard a lot about this place, and passed it several times as it was a long line-up. We decided to give it a try as it wasn't busy. We tried the Akbar Mashti as we loved it before and wanted to see the taste of it in Bella. We were quite surprised with the taste as it wasn't something... More

Come here for desert or a snack. They have a large selection to be brave and try something new and unique. If your not sure you like it, they'll let you sample. I love their chocolate peanut butter and their pecan. Expect it to be busy but the line moves quickly.

Indulged in the Dine Out experience here for a friend's birthday, with yummy italian meatballs and pizza, plus their delicious gelato for dessert. Everything was well prepared and very tasty, said to be the best authentic Italian pizza in Vancouver- if this is true, I'm moving to Italy; I could certainly live off of this food for the rest of...

Owner personally came out to welcome us (we obviously were not from the area). Explained his craft of making the best, health conscious gelato, an international winner and one of a kind, exotic flavors.

Four of us dined on delicious thin-crust pizza with Italian beer to sip, followed by equally delicious dishes of gelato. In addition, the proprietor, James, personally invited us to sample and pass judgement on a newly created gelato, a fascinating blend of flavours. We're sure it will join the host of unusual blends on offer, all of which are available... More
