Great unusual flavours

We got here pretty late, just before closing time so missed the crazy lines we'd been warned about. Loads of tempting flavours, finally got the coffee and the salted caramel and white chocolate which they say is their most popular flavour. Easy to see why.

The best selection of gelato in Sydney, without a doubt. My favourite is the tiramisu. I have a son with a dairy intolerance, and there are plenty of non dairy options for him to choose from

The long queue at this ice cream shop attracted us to try it. And it is probably one of the best gelato in Sydney. The service is also excellent although you may have to wait when there are many customers. A must try for all travelers.

Excellent gelato really exciting we enjoyed the passion fruit caramel and the nougat . We had to line up but it was worth the wait. Loved it - so did our friends who had chocolate fudge and mint chip and the peanut butter fudge . Biggest problem was deciding which combinations to choose will definitely go back and try the...

This bolt hole place delivers gelato that is worth the effort in finding the shop. We haven't had gelato this good since Italy, three years ago and the four of us sat quietly eating our gelato quietly, savouring every mouthful. Not cheap but worth every cent.

As an ice cream lover and world traveler, I often check out top-rated ice cream shops wherever I go. I tried a few flavours at Gelato Messina, and it was indeed one of the better ice creams I've tried (I especially liked the Gianduia). I don't rate it among the very best in the world that I've tried though, not... More

Despite not being voted the #1 Gelato in Sydney, in my heart Gelato Messina is #1. With new specials coming in every week, with the same consistency and explosion of flavours, you can't really ask for anything else. My partner and I frequent Gelato Messina - at least once a month. There's really no other option when it comes to... More

This place is very nice to taste a delicious ice cream in Sydney. The mango cheesecake is the best! You need to try! The gelato is placed in Surry Hills.

We saw people with gelato, we saw a line and figured this must be the place to go. Didn't take too long to get in (and out) and we weren't disappointed - the vanilla was delicious and the coconut and lychee equally so. Forget dessert at a restaurant - when in Crown Street get a gelato at Messina and go... More
