Watch them making gelato while you place your order! A great place to visit in Ottawa South, Stella Luna's has a wonderful selection of homemade gelato. A great treat!

Stella Luna is the place to go for awesome ice cream. I have only been there for ice cream so I cannot comment about their coffee and food.

Located in the Ottawa South residential area on Bank Street, Stella Luna's main attraction is their award-winning gelato. Rich with ream and authentic flavour, I judged them very delicious even though I'm not a great dessert lover. Try a small cup of their featured chocolate-cherry-rum or pistachio. A little on the pricey side (2 large mugs of reg coffee, one... More

All the flavors taste the same. I've been here before and there used to be more difference in the ice creams and the tastes of the different types of ice cream but now I'm sorry to say but they are skimping on the flavors or cutting back on something. They all taste like sugar and not much difference. The cafe... More

This place doesn't need another good review on Trip Advisor to get more customers -- it is packed with other ottawa folks who have discovered gelato that tastes like gelato -- not the common chemical like taste you often get. This stuff is incredibly tasty. Try the pistachio. The last time we had anything that was remotely as tasty was... More

Crowded, noisy and poor service. Food pre made and not particularly fresh. I honestly don't know what other people saw - perhaps the gelato (which I did not have) was very good. Not a recommend at all.

Good without a doubt, though I have visited gelateria's with far more exotic offerings... still one can't complain with their very Italian inspired selections. BTW... no normal individual needs get a large (this 3 scoop max serving is definitely for sharing).

The past time I was in Stella Luna was on a Saturday. The dining area was full of soccer clad kids and grand parents. Servers are knowledgable about gluten content in their ice creams and sorbets. Coffee is decent. Owners and servers are great. On weekdays its a decent place for coffee meetings. I don't think they have WIFI there... More

A friend who spent years slinging gelato for summer employment insisted this was the best gelateria in town. So the next time she was in town, she put her money where her mouth was and treated me to a scoop. Good lord. I had the vanilla with caramel and pralines, the blackberry and pear, and the award-winning chocolate-rum-cherry. I'm not... More

I'm so lucky to live around the block from this gem. Their gelato is the most flavorful in town. The chocolate orange is an incredible taste sensation. But my favourite is anything with white chocolate in it. And I don't even like white chocolate...what have they done to me?!? I've tried their coffee and it's good but very strong. Millions... More
