Gelato not ice cream. Bellisimo!

This is the best gelato in the world and far far superior to ice cream. It is rich and creamy with an intensity of flavour. And the range of flavours is incredible. In Sydney, you must visit. In another part of Australia, get to Sydney and taste this, it is worth the journey! Christmas day dessert... read more

Mesina has a lots of gelato flavours, the cake also very delicious. They have gelato with flavour which very unique like Rose Water, Run while you can etc. The queue sometimes too much and we have to wait for a long time which reduce your appetite.

Cake is good but the price is dear. Ice cream is popular and sometimes you will get coupon which will be cheap. Place in Star city is quite popular. Try salted cameral white chocolate.

Although you have to queue when it is busy, it is well worth the wait. The service is very fast and friendly. The ice cream is good, they have lots of flavours to choose and they have some fun deserts as well. You can also always taste the new flavors before buying a whole scoop. Give it a try!

I was impressed to find many gluten free options at Gelato Messina. Staff were friendly, and flavours are clearly marked if gluten free.

Yum yum yum, ice cream in my tum tum tum. Love this ice cream store and will wait in line because there is always one. It is worth the wait. You have so many flavours to choose from. I am a fan of their specials though. Be sure to check out their board.

My parents came over from the uk to visit, and my mum mentioned she fancied ice cream. I told her not to buy any, but to wait for me to take her to Messina. I'm not a big ice cream/ gelato fan, but this place do it excellently, I'd say definitely get something from the specials board, it's always yummy... More

I'd passed this one and the one in Surry Hills many times, and there was always a queue, so eventually i decided to pop in. $7 for 2 scoops is pretty steep I feel, and the mint choc was nowhere near as good as it should've been.
