Great assortment of flavours, very tasty.

Love this place, and especially love that they do not restrict the number of flavours you can ask for (assuming you're reasonable). Highly recommend.

16 homemade flavours to choose. And you can choose any combo. We had four different flavours in a take home tub. If you like cinnamon don't miss that one. Yum

This place serves among the best gelato I have tasted anywhere! Service is friendly and efficient. Patio tables available out front. A trip to Ottawa's Little Italy is not complete without a gelato or sorbet from Gelatini!

Hello Gelato! This stuff is really good! Monica (part owner) is from Italy and she knows her stuff. They even shell their own pistachio's for the icecream! amazingly good, and pretty homemade with passion and love that the owners show. Congrats on your new little addition to the family, Evelina! Gotta go quick cuz they run out, everything is made... More

We visit regularly, the flavours are always fresh and intense. Love it! Friendly service and better than gelato we've had in Italy. They use real ingredients and you can tell. You can order custom flavours by the tub for take-home off the website. Highly recommend.

I don't know how many time we've been there, never lets me down. Just came back from Italy and tried the pistachio EVERYWHERE I went, never the same. Flavor is so good on this one and the nuts are shelled on site as I have seen it with my own eyes, no colorants, no industrial pistachio paste, no almonds to... More

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews, we were eager to try this place. Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations. Both the pistachio gelato and lemon sorbet lacked depth of flavor. We much prefer Stella Luna on Elgin Street.

Good product. Gelato that were tried at this place varied each time we went. Evenings usually have a short lineup but it's well worth the wait.
