Went here for a quick dessert after dinner. The service was great. Lady there was so helpful and truly made us feel like we wanted to buy everything. Will go back because of the great service

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.

I love to come here for a cone when I have something to celebrate. So many great flavors. Lychee and lemon are always refreshing.

Best gelato in Ottawa, by far. The customer service was fantastic, too! I had pistachio and hazelnut, and let me tell you, the gelato tastes as if biting into the real nut! A friend of mine had one of the berry ones and said the same thing. Super refreshing, specially on a hot Summer day! PS: the cappuccino is awesome.

I was excited to try this place, especially after reading all the positive reviews about it. I ended up going there with a couple of friends and we tried a couple of the flavors of gelato and they were all great so I got a couple of flavors in a waffle cup. The waffle cop was extremely soft and soggy... More

Apologies for the cone. We try to make some waffle cones on site, but we do have standard waffle cones and sugar cones. We should have responded differently. We will work with our team to ensure that we handle this situation appropriately. If you do visit us again, ask for Chris or Monica -- the next one is on us. More

Best gelato in town by far! Here's the truth: I live in Hull, I have a gelateria right in front of my house, but I still go all the way over there just to get mine. The reason: because it is REAL gelato. It is not full of sugar. It is not a powder. They offer a large variety, from... More

I never had gelato before so I had to try it. Luckily, I have family living within walking distance. I had the scor and mix berries. A delight!! Will definitely return

I took my wife for some gelato after a long day. It was awesome. I like that they are a family run business, you can tell its their passion. I'm a pistachio guy and my wife lives for the chocolate hazelnut.
