I always love going to Messina for dessert with friends. With so many flavours to choose from and new options appearing regularly it's a sweet tooth's heaven! Hugely popular but the wait is worth it.

A friend recommended then I was pleased to see it was ranked highly on TA! We got there about 7pm and there was no line. Lovely staff who were happy to recommend flavours and give samples. Yoghurt Caramel and Salted coconut Mango were the winners- both amazing. We will be back.

Fantastic range of ice creams! We had the coconut (Thai style with sticky rice) one and also a salty caramel one. Both were excellent.

Everyone raves about this place so we had to try it but wasn't sure it would live up to expectations. I have to say this is the most amazing icecream I've ever taste! Simply amazing..
