A tour bus of 100 students dropped in for a treat and we did not leave disappointed. The flavours were plentiful and the worst part of the visit was picking what we wanted. I went with spicy mango and it was spicy, not for the faint of heart or tongue, it was very spicy. Others tried many different flavours and... More

Okay, 218 favors to choose from? That's crazy! We found this place before we came to Vancouver and made it a destination one night after poutine for dinner. The place is lit up and easy to find. They have a parking lot, albeit a bit squishy. You buy your chip for 5$ and then go sample. The young adults working... More

A lot of variety, and a fun place that is out of the tourist hubs of Vancouver, which we really liked. Saved the night after a mediocre dinner nearby.

An attraction as well as an ice cream store, La Casa Gelato is the most interesting, and probably the best gelato server in the city, offering over 200 flavours, including all the standards, many exotics, and some you'd never imagine possible. Free taste spoons available to help you choose. Our favourites include nut kulfi, coconut, basil pernod, chocolate chili, mango... More

There were 218 choices, count 'em 218, when we visited. They let you sample so you don't have to order without having a clue. Even though quite busy, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The sampling was part of the fun, then my gelato of choice (of course!).

This is the best gelato in Vanocuver. We visit only 6 times a year but it is truly is a wll deserved treat. It's a must go when we have out of town guests or are headed downtown for a concert or event. With over 200 flavours, who can resist trying a few new samples each visit. The staff are... More

Went to this shop with a group of family and friends. This was our first time but the other people have visited before. What a shop! Be sure to get your coin first so the servers know you are going to buy one. That way they don't have a problem giving you all the samples you want. There are some... More

We were tipped off by cousin to ask for samples .... which makes it even more difficult to choose from the 218 flavours! Have to be honest ... really didn´t like (in fact hated!) the garlic ice cream! Yuch! But the other 217 are fabulous!

Went here after dining out and what an experience! Unbelievable number of choices and flavors. It is great that you can walk around and sample any of the gelatos before having the difficult decision of which to buy. You wonder how they decide what flavors to make (like pesto and a good one called birthday cake) but hey, the place... More
