Description: Opened for business in 2006 as Osoyoos Gelato and quickly established itself as the #1 gelato outlet in the Okanagan. In 2014 changed name to Roberto's, although other than the name everything stayed the same. Some of the purest, most flavourful gelato you'll be able to find!

Saved our lives late one afternoon when we were tired and needed a pick-me-up after the town's one and only other coffee shop had already closed for the day.

Stopped in one day on our bike ride when they opened, had two flavours of gelato and were extremely satisfying. A little pricey, but hey, for good gelato, might as well pay the piper for good eatings. Will come back (and wish we did when we had more time on our trip) next year when we visit again.

Roberto's was a disappointment to me. I like gelato and have been to Italian winners of world competitions. So when I got here I loaded up--and was quite disappointed. Despite the grand names, what I tasted was pretty much at the level of generic ice cream. It was cheap, though. For the real deal, motor up to Medici's in Oliver.

Try the Aztec! I am now unable to eat any other flavour! It is simply the very best! I have heard that the Merlot is very good along with the other flavours but I will never know! It is Aztec all the way!

We stopped by everyday for gelato, they aren't overly generous with their serving size but it is delicious.

Last year, my wife and I discovered this place while looking for a post dinner dessert during our first ever stay in Osoyoos. While looking at the offerings, we found something called Kulfi that is an Indian dessert made of condensed milk, almonds, pistachios etc. We tasted it and found that it was as good as anything we have had...

Hi, I remember you were in, and were after the Kulfi. It has become a pretty popular flavour and I apologize again for not having it that day. That is a long way to drive for just a serving of Kulfi, I hope you find something else to occupy yourself with! ;-) Regards, Robert More

You gotta try this! You can sample as many as it takes to make the difficult decision when ordering. Tiny little shop with outdoor seating, next to bike rental place.

I had the chocolate mousse on a waffle cone, it was great! Not a lot of indoor seating, but there are tables outside. The kids said they liked their cones too.

I could go to Roberto's Gelato every day. There is always a delicious and special flavour to taste. This week, the Lemon Basil Sorbetto returns. My other absolute favourite is the Sea Salt Caramel gelato. The staff is friendly and engaging. It has outdoor tables and chairs. A great place to stop after dinner.

This gelato is extremely delicious, it is twice as good as any other gelato I've tasted and if all you have ever tasted is ice cream; you don't even know what good is. The prices are high but you get what you pay for.
