Theres one right around the corner from work, so on special occasions a few of us will wonder on down. It gets harder and harder each time to pick a flavour, my usual favourite is bounty & I loved their special caramel popcorn. The cakes are amazing too.

Messina is the best gelato in Sydney. Staff helpful especially if transporting gelato to St Vincent's Hospital. Crowds are ridiculous after 8.30pm Friday and Saturday nights so eat dessert before dinner these nights

I stopped off here yesterday for 2 scoops of ice cream and what I tasted was heavenly! I had salted caramel and white chocolate and cookies flavoured ice cream and the flavours were to die for! I particularly recommend the salted caramel and white chocolate if you have a sweet tooth. The service was great too and the price is... More

I, especially being the ice cream fanatic that I am, had huge expectations for Gelato Messina and was, unfortunately, left disappointed. My dad and I went in and both had the 6-flavour tray to taste lots of the different options, and both of us felt it was lacking. For me, although a lot of my flavours were similar (lots of... More

Messina's reputation is well-deserved, and is without doubt the most interesting and tasty gelato establishment in Sydney. Its ongoing popularity is demonstrated by the queues that stretch on right throughout the night, even in the depths of winter. The specials are always worth checking out and you can have a taste of any flavour before committing, but if nothing on... More

Re the Darlinghurst/main location-the neighborhood may surprise you but the treasure at the end is pure gold! We almost headed back because the street numbers are not the same on each side and we thought that we were lost. If you like soft serve, skip the main place and go to the place next door. Worth every calorie

A perfect way to end a business night out with colleagues, was walking past here in the late evening and buying gelato. It topped off what had been an award winning night!! Delicious and I highly recommend the cookies and cream or cafe latte.
