This is my favourite place to take friends who have not been here before, or if I'm downtown Vancouver and craving gelato before driving home. I have been many, many times over the years. It's always a fun experience as we taste different samples of tasty flavours including unique combinations. My two favourites are spumoni and chocolate raspberry truffle. The... More

Family owned and operated La Casa Gelato is dizzy with gelato choices. Now they offer 218 choices that range from at least 20 chocolate variants to honey lavender to garlic. Only limited by your sense of adventure, La Casa Gelato offers samples before you fill up you cup with scoops of some of the best made Gelato in Vancouver. We... More

214 + Ice Cream flavours to choose from! These are not artificially flavored ice-creams, seriously the genuine thing! With blaring romantic Caruso type Italian music, you are invited to taste any ice-cream you might fancy before ordering! Licorice, Wild berries with jalapeno [totally yum & refreshing] chocolate chilli, fresh crushed fennel, red grapefruit, espresso with roasted walnuts [leaves you speechless]... More

We've visited this place many times over the years--twice this week! While the ice cream is very good, it is probably not the best available. However, we come for the fun of the festive atmosphere and the huge variety of flavours. We usually try several flavours before ordering, sometimes including the unusual choices, such as Kimchi, garlic or spicy mango.... More

This ice cream shop still offers free samples, but in general the flavors seem less flavorful. Still a lot of flavors, still crazy flavors, but the actual taste just isn't what it used to be. Still a super busy place - full of Asian tourists - but I don't think I want to come back here. It's too hectic, first... More

This used to be a regular stop for us when we lived in the area. Went back today after 5 or 6 years. The place is looking great and they still have that incredible selection of delicious gelato, but I was shocked that it's now $5 a cone, and that's not even a large cone. As before there is no...

It was just by chance that I happened upon this little gem. It is in an older, more industrial part of town by the old railway. I had low expectations but my ice cream craving led me along. When I opened the door I felt like I was walking into a circus or carnival, it was so colorful and bright.... More

It's not just an ice cream shop it's an event. Free samples allow you to try flavors that you won't find elsewhere until you find the perfect one.

Overall it's worth a visit. The ice cream is good -flavorful and fun to try the wacky flavors before ordering your final pick. If your downtown Vancouver -bike over for extra fun. The price is a bit high for what you get --$5 for 1 scoop. Also the little garden across the street is a nice place to sit and... More
