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

With a small gelato (~$6) you get to try 3 flavours, which is more than enough since it's SO rich and flavourful. I recommend pistachio and the chocolate, rum and cherries mix. The cafe has a busy, yet cozy atmosphere. If your date is going well get some coffee after too and then stroll around the glebe. There is a... More

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
