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!

As a big fan (and amateur connaisseur) of italian homemade icecream, I can only say that Gelocchio makes the very best icecream I've ever tasted . . . In addition, the owners are extremely nice/true people . . . It was a real pleasure to get our daily scoops of icecream at Gelocchio during the week we spend in Cairns... More

Our family loves gelato, and we've tasted the very best in Italy and around the world. Although I understand how a business owner would like to save money, I don't understand how Devine limits samples to 2 per person.The owner at Gelocchio showed some reluctance in giving us samples, but at least she did not deny them. It is bad... More

The bottom line up front is that if you are in Cairns, you really have no choice but to visit both Gelocchio AND Devine Gelato, as they are almost next to each other and are both among the very best gelato I have tried anywhere in the world (Italy, New York, Toronto, and many other cities). It is difficult to... More

This place is worthy of the great reviews. I could not decide what I wanted and did not feel like an entire ice cream, so opted for the paper cone with five different ice cream balls that were coated in chocolate. These were all absolutely amazing and left me wanting more! A great way to taste lots of flavours without... More

Best gelato we tried in Cains! Very fresh. The Irish Cream tastes amazing (a shop up the block tasted artificial) & the coconut is perfect; not too sweet. If I lived here I'd eat it every day.

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
