Awesome Gelato, flavour for everyone!

Smooth gelato, quirky flavours. Wouldn't mind having this even in winter! And great pricing as well, considering a tub of Ben's and Jerry's costs $13 at the supermarket

Their salted caramel gelato is something that words cannot describe. I'd dare to say that you won't be disappointed

Okay, so it hasn't won world's best gelato (like a little place in Enmore) but it is still my favourite ice cream in Sydney hands down. Definitely worth waiting for, especially as the lines move quickly! Try some of the specials, and the salted caramel. When I'm out of Sydney I really look forward to getting back to Messina :)

Two words.. salted caramel! So good, better than italy. Sometimes there is quite a line up but it's worth it!

Messina's creative flavours makes us want to go for more. If you are a health fanatic, do not go there. It is always a little surprise to view the specials board and try out a bizarre flavour experience. I would recommend a visit.

I'm allergic to dairy and love ice cream, gelato and sorbet. However, almost everywhere I go in Australia all that I'm offered are the same old stock standard narrow range of boring overly sweet fruit sorbets. So imagine my delight at coming across Messina and being offered dairy free sorbets with flavours such as chocolate, pandan coconut and salted coconut... More

All very good - great selection of gelato. The descriptions do match the product. There are some real taste sensations. Price is reasonable for the quality. Good location in terms of having the gelato after meal in the Food Court at The Star. The only downside is that it is so popular that there are often queues to contend with.

Unique and creative, Messina never fails to impress me, I've had Messina almost weekly for a year, it's soooo good, never had a bad one, even had a chicken and waffles American themed Messina once!! Which consisted of a deep fried maple syrup gelato in the shape of a chicken leg! Delicious! Popping candy, candy floss, pretzels, cake. Daily crazy... More

I absolutely love this gelato and it's their unique flavours that keep me going back. I think it's some of the best I've ever eaten anywhere in the world. They also have a Gelato Appreciation Course which is very interesting and you get a gelato degustation menu which is an incredible taste sensation. The hardest thing is making a booking... More
