Gelato made by the people who serve you using real fruit

There are plenty of gelato shops in Cairns and even more at home in Melbourne. But there are not many that make it on location using real fruit ingredients rather than manufactured flavourings, and the person who makes it serves you ... Gelocchio is one of those! As well as a great range of... read more

I've been coming back to Gelocchio for years and I love the ice-creams on the sticks - just enough that you're not pigging out too much, and very good value. Toppings (chocolate, nuts etc) are optional. They know what ingredients are in everything and this is definitely not your usual icecream shop. The shop itself is tiny but there are... More

I really like the decor of the shop. Unlike many ice cream shops where you just look through the one dimensional window, you can walk in and be immersed in the colorful sea of ice cream from 3 of the 4 directions. I think other shops should definitely take a page. I would recommend their pistachio flavored ice cream to... More

Find a good gelato overseas is very difficult. Gelocchio is a very good one, tasty and well balanced. Top 10 in Australia.

I had to go to this place after seeing that they reached number one in Cairns- I can definitely see why! The lady was very helpful, letting me know what I could and couldn't have with my allergies, and I settled on the Baileys flavor. I actually had to stop walking once I put the first spoonful in my mouth!... More

Not just the more tasty ice-cream I've eaten in a while, but lots of delicious popsicles, the attention at the details and the friendly owners make this the place to be!

This is the best gelato bars I've ever had! So worth it to spend time for a gelato bar in cairns! Very different from others! You should go there and write something on the wall as i did before!!

Reading previous TripAdvisor posting, I had high expectations of this place. Although it didn't disappoint, I was hoping for more. The variety of flavors were the same with most gelato places around area, but they did taste fresher. Not my absolute favorite place but it's not bad as a second alternative.
