Who would have thought it? I have just had the most delicious gelato from a small, unassuming shop in Cairns. I had two flavours the Soursop and Dragonfruit. Both were amazing. I highly recommend this shop. If you are in Cairns don't miss it.

It's not the first time I am writing about Gelocchio, its gelato and its owners. In every trip to Cairns its mandatory to get an icecream from this place. I will never be tired of writing good things. Not only the ice-cream is real with real fruit, milk, cream and so on but also the friendliness of the owner and... More

Had the pistacchio as well as the macadamia. Great flavours. Simple store with plenty of selections on offer. Also found the price reasonable at $4 for a cone with 2 scoops.

This is an authentic gelateria run by real Italians. We went 4 times during our stay in Cairns and the whole family (3 generations) were able to eat the best gelati ever! The owners and people serving are very friendly. Quality and quantity into the bargain! There's often a queue in the evenings. You can other have the traditional soft... More

Went one night, came back again. Staff were super friendly and more than happy to let us sample a bunch of flavours. Ice cream was fluffy, smooth and full of flavour. Wish they were in Brisbane!!

We went once, twice, three times and then two farewell visits... Didn't (couldn't!) make it through the amazing range of flavours... My wife loved the affogato, our 2yo the fruit varieties and I was partial to the nutty flavours. Lovely, friendly service and amazing product... They deserve a higher rating than 5!

It's a little hard to find and can get easily drowned out by the signage of their competitors. It's on Apline next to cafe Thailand. They make everything on site and are generous with their serves. The paddle pops are a huge recommendation.

We walked by here on our last day in Cairns. We found it just by chance and it was superb. At first we thought it was closed but it's an air conditioned store and you need to walk in. I had the best pistachio ice cream I've ever had. I recommend finding this place early on your vacation so that... More
