Best gelato i have had in a long time. I love the way they utilise local ingredients such as sour sop, custard apple and dragon fruit which none of the others offer. exceptional quality and service

Soursop is a tropical fruit with fresh tangy flavour. The homemade soursop gelato at this place was absolutely delicious! We had it at least 3 times in one trip! It is a must try if you're in Cairns. I'm sure the other flavours are nice also.

the best gelato that i have since i've been here in Australia, awesome flavours with real fruits, not like other ice cream that they put artificial mix inside. you can taste every single fruit and flavour, try the tiramisu and the coconut! they're my favourite! also the sorbet are simply perfect, like the rasperry or the mojito one. Best gelato... More

The gelato was as great as all reviews said. I had the strawberry one and it was the best strawberry gelato I've ever had - full of flavour, it even had a whole strawberry inside.

Finally after a very much "nothing-new" in Cairns, we came across Gelocchio. Though there were many ice cream shops all over the esplanade, the minute details of Gelocchio caught our attention. To begin was the "Welcome" chart in the front of the shop, written in multiple languages to encourage diversity, and then the smiling staff standing behind the counter and... More

This place is a definite favourite of ours. Their stick ice-creams dipped in either dark, milk or white chocolate are amazing. We love the strawberry/lemon the best. The service here is also wonderful. So please we found this little shop as it's quite easy to walk past if we hadn't noticed all the people enjoying ice-cream outside.

Gelocchio serves some of the most authentic gelato's and sorbets in the country; unfortunately you have to travel all of the way to Cairns to have it (though its a little closer than Verona, Italy). Over the week we tried the dragon fruit, sour-sop (gaurnabana) and chocolate. While all delicious,the winner for us was the hazelnut with a touch of... More
