We waited to try Mio Gelato two times before giving it a thumbs down but both times, lack of flavour ( tried pistachio, lemon, chocolate, green tea, peach) More importantly, the gelato, on both visits, had ice chips in it. Quality should be the defining cornerstone of a local business. It is a hot day and they should have had... More

The gelateria was packed with customers who were served by an enthusiastic young team of servers who worked hard to reduce the line size on a very busy night as the town held its buskers festival.

Lots of choice and a real trendy spot, get your gelato in the cone not the cup though. It's nice that they let you sample some flavours first as well. Enjoy! Ah I'm full ;)

There's no better way to cool off when wandering around downtown Kingston that grabbing ice cream or gelato at Mio. There are literally dozens of flavours to choose from and it is served either in a cup of waffle cone (the way to go!). I particularly enjoyed the straciatella and hazelnut ice cream. There isn't really any space to enjoy... More

Lots of selection to choose from, AND you can sample them! Service was great and so was the gelato. We ate close by and saw people coming and going so decided we should check it out too, we weren't disappointed.

Recommended by server at Jack Astors as being best ice cream/gelato. Got a small size which was actually huge portion. Loved the flavors. Highly recommend. There is also an ice cream store a few doors down if you prefer that over gelato. We got ice cream there AND gelato at this place and declared this the winner!

Some good flavors but over priced. Would not go there again although the gelato I had did taste good.

Great little shop right in the heart of downtown. Lots of choice (my favorite being Lemon Greek Yogurt) and great value :) Benches outdoors and across the road in the park for sitting and enjoying.
