This is by far one of the best ice cream places I have visited. They make their ice cream in the shop daily and the selection is great.

Luckily we arrived when it wasn't too busy. The atmosphere is very pleasant - nice decor and lots of room. The gelatos are amazing! $30 got us 4 medium-sized cups, into which you can mix up to 3 different flavours. Medium was plenty big as they're very generous with their portions. Service was friendly and fast. If I were an... More

I always thought gelato was a bit icy, but not at Stella Luna. Every flavour we tried was a creamy flavourful dessert. We went there twice, showing up late on a Sunday evening, only to find that all gelato was 40% off. We got in right before closing and there were only a few flavours left, but we were not... More

Excellent gellato and always a great selection. Lineup moves fast, so don't let that stop you from going, even when it's out the door.

After reading local articles about Stella Luna placing 4th in North America in the world gelato competition, we decided to give it a try. We went at 8pm on Friday, and were in a line-up of 20 people. The line actually moved very quickly. I tried the lemon sorbet, and really liked it. My wife had the chocolate rum cherry... More

Everyone enjoys what they ordered and it was served with impeccable... More

My friend introduced me to this restaurant. She raved that it had the best gelato and took me there to prove it. She was absolutely right. I highly recommend trying the pistachio flavoured gelato (both of our faves) - of course if you don't have a nut allergy. I have been returning and bringing all my friends here. All are... More

Stella Luna opened in my neighbourhood a couple years ago and we wish it were still a secret. The gellato is hand made, absolutely incredible mix of ingredients. Don't be discouraged by the line up out the door. It is worth the short wait. They have other things on the menu - coffees, sandwiches, cakes...but no matter what the season,... More

Stella Luna recently made the finals of the World Gelato Championships and you can see why. The quality and flavours of the ice cream are extraordinary. My daughter and I each bought the $7 serving and staggered away with a tub stuffed with three flavours each: I had lemon, passion fruit and a mixture of cherry and mango and passion... More
