Who needs to order dessert when you have Gelato Messina. Best range of flavours and the best bit is if you are undecided on what flavour to have or if you would like it or not just ask for a taste and they will give you a sample. Always crowded with a line outside so you know it has to... More

My family Love Messina! The flavours, which are numerous, change regularly with special flavours and the regular flavours remaining on the menu like old favourites should. Every day at any hour my family can be found dreaming of and eating Messina. Not just for a special occasion but for all occasions.

Love the ice cream, pure chocolate is still my favorite, very rich! Creative names for the weekly specials and the service is always very pleasant. I only think they should improve the queue/line when it's too busy

Genuinely the best gelato I have ever tasted. The variety and creation of flavours they have on their specials every week is so impressive. Prices have just gone up but I don't think this will affect their business as it is a quality product and worth every cent. People queuing out the door at night shows just how popular it... More

Although, its a small shop in Darlinghurst, but its a must visit and try. Many flavors available to try and choose from. Staff most of the time humble and smiling. This place can be very busy at the school time afternoons.

I live near one of these stores and there ia always a queue and always new flavours. A must if you are in the area or on a visit. I visit lots so I get to try lots of flavours.

Great Gelato, the chocolate nocola brought me back to my childhood memories. This experience was at the Surry Hills shop very busy but the service was very quick.
