Sadly...gone!!!

We have loved the gelato and the very friendly service at the family-run Gelateria Italia, but it was recently destroyed by fire. I hope the family that made it such a success are able to reopen in another location. They were wonderful people and made their gelato in-house. You could also count on... read more

Great Capocino and Gelato. Every time I come to Marine Drive I look this place up. A true winner every time.

I hope the family that made it such a success are able to reopen in another location. They were wonderful people and made their gelato in-house. You could also count on great coffee and paninis there.

In March this 20+ year old local favorite burned to the ground. The owners are looking for a new place but Marine Drive has at least 6 more gelaterias and ice cream shops.

Sorry but this little gem burned to the ground last week. So sad. Had wonderful home made gelato and you couldn't beat their coffee.

This is the only place I go to for gelato here in White Rock - or any place. I am so sad to say though that this place was lost in a terrible fire less than a week ago ( around March 10, 2015). I sure hope they rebuild!

Lovely local gelateria completely burned down last week and is no more. They served top quality gelato and other frozen treats to locals and visitors. Although there are many places to buy ice cream on the beach, they stood out as being passionate and caring about the quality of what they served. Open year round, even on sunny winter days... More

Freshly made ice creams, geratos and coffee! It's so difficult for me to choose which flavour to eat..

My heart is breaking for you guys when I saw the news of the fire this AM. Not only the BEST gelato, the BEST PEOPLE- incredibly hard working & good natured. I hope the community comes together to help you through this difficult time. Thinking of you!

I have never been disappointed here, other than maybe long lines I the summer because they are so good. Can't wait for the next visit.

Out for a walk along White Rock sea front on Valentine's Day, the love of my life introduced me to the new love of my life thanks to Gelateria Italia! She recommended I try a gelato even though it was a chilly evening. Once inside the cosy cafe I began to share her enthusiasm as I saw the array of... More
