This restaurant is a treasure, and will leave you wanting to eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The gelato and sorbets are to die for, very tasty and made from real fruit. There was too much to try in our short visit, and we just wished we had brought an esky so that we could take some home... More

we stopped in here on the weekend - first time at this place but would definitely return. The gelato was great and there is a good selection to choose from.

After visiting many ice cream/ gelato shops we have this place a try after seeing many great reviews on here. My only criticism of the place is that there is too much choice! I ended up trying a cone of 6 sorbet balls so I was able to try a few different flavors. I wasn't disappointed, explosions of flavor with... More

Beyond expectations. Among dozens of ice cream and Gelato shops in Cairns this one caught our eyes. The taste is even better than the appearance. I ordered mango and coconut flavored Gelato pole, and it was like eating frozen mango and the coconut part is so creamy.

This place is a daily ritual for us when holidayin in Cairns. These are proper, grown up indulgences (that kids will love too!) and you can create a treat as individual as you! Tradtiional, italian style Gelato is made from quality natural ingredients on the premises. You can buy it in the usual format (cone or cup) but for an... More

Best gelato ever! We went there twice in one day. It had lots of flavours to choose from including paddle pops for the littlies. We had Hazelnut with a cone dipped in chocolate then peanuts, coconut in a cup, pistachio and ferrro rocher with a cone dipped in 100s and 1000s.

The ice cream they sell is nice but not outstanding, maybe for the Australian standards this is the closest to an Italian gelato. I found it nice but too expensive. I had better ice-cream in the Daintree (cape tribulation). In Europe the ice cream is much much better, long live the Italian immigrants. I would go again as this is... More

I cannot spend one week without getting an ice cream at Gelocchio. The italian owners are very friendly and they share with you their gelato love. I am a "connoisseur" of homemade ice-cream, the cone (wafer) is so tasty, and trust me, this is the best gelato I've ever had. My favourite flavour is Bailey's, try it, it's like a... More

We stopped here after a Thai dinner for chocolate and salted caramel. It was the perfect dessert to take a walk on the Esplanade and enjoy the evening. Delicious!
