The best gelato in ottawa

I tasted many types of gelato in Ottawa but being from Italy...the only gelato that is close to the one in Italy is Stella Luna.

What more can be said, possibly some of the best Gelato Ottawa has to offer. Every flavour is amazing. The crepes and small food menu also great. Enjoy!

Awesome gelato here to keep you coming back, and we are regular customers. The coffee and the waffles also deserve top marks. Be prepared to contend with long lines in the summer, as this gelato store attracts customers from all over the city, as well as some premium pricing that doesn't seem to deter its loyal fans. The good news... More

My mom and I went for our second time tonight and it was absolutely wonderful! We stopped in a few weeks ago for our first time and we were so thrilled to find a unique, cute and cozy place for a cup of coffee. The coffee is good , decor is very warming and the staff are extremely inviting! As... More

I used to consider Stella Luna a somewhat classy place; but not anymore. A sure sign of a restaurant or bistro going downhill is rude behaviour / poor customer service. This is particularly the case if that rude behaviour comes from management itself, rather than one particular server. The servers are okay. The problem with Stella Luna seems to be... More

Very good gelato but when it's hot out the lines are long and it's approx $15-18 for two people to have two regular size bowls. It's definitely a special 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
