An array of flavours, sometimes hit and miss. However overall is a must go to for what is probably the best gelato this side of Italy (Sydney). Props to them for the Elvis flavor last week; with Brioche, peanut butter and etc. It was almost sexual.

What better way to finish off a busy humid day in the city. Choice of 3 flavours, with cream, nuts and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Divine!

Good quality ice cream. Had the salted caramel with white chocolate chips which I thought was very nice. Good Service. The range was unusual and nice.

As a visitor to Sydney I'd heard a visit is a Must Do. So we joined the queue and waited patiently of 15 minutes before we were able to squeeze into the small shop. These were 15 minutes well spent. A good number of people mumbled and walked off while we waited - they weren't going to wait for ice-cream!... More

Got three scoops to share between 2 people, and at $7, found this quite well priced, especially in comparison to some significantly higher prices ice cream chains in Sydney, which are not bad, but definitely not...
