The best around.

Love this place. The different flavours on offer on a daily basis is amazing and it's not too badly priced. Easy to see why there can be big queues at times!!

Messina Gelato has recently opened at Miranda Fair and today I sample one of their specials Peach Trifle with whipped cream, sherry jelly and sponge soaked in blood orange syrup folded through. I thought it would be too sweet but what a taste sensation.

The worst thing about a visit to Messina is choosing what flavour to have! There are so many absolutely delicious taste sensations on offer, it is almost impossible to make a choice. If you are queuing you have the opportunity to peruse the long and varied menu. Don't forget the specials which are on the board as you enter. Your... More

Well, there is few places that can inspire such passion and loyalty for gelato as Gelato Messina does, and yes it does it so consistantly without fail. Never mind the occasional long queue but the salted caramel and peanut butter gelato are out of this world. Plus they serve new weekly specials which never fails to impress!

Wow this was delicious! We took a short walk after dinner to have some Messina and the flavour of the month gelato "nicolino" (I think that's how it was spelt) was amazing. Bring a shop to Perth! :)

Sometimes, hype and publicity makes a visit to a place disappointing. GM could have certainly done so, with it featured on TV (Masterchef). Thankfully, it did not. Although we didn't get to try the real special desserts, the falvours of the gelato were fantastic. Some we thought didn't work (but we all have our own tastes, right?) but some were... More

Loved it! Very difficult to choose because all of the flavours are great. I had a one scoop cone and had to go for a second one

I don't go crazy for icecream in Australia as there are not many flavors I like and most are nowhere to be found here, one is gianduia and the other day at Gelato Messina not only I found gianduia but it was simply delicious!!!

No matter the location the gelato is always great. The lines can get annoying at times but you generally forget all about that once you are eating the gelato. The different specials are always a treat.
