Nice ice cream but the staff are short and sharp, even rude at times. Made you feel like you were troubling them, not going to win many friends

Wide range of delicious flavours. Beautiful taste and texture. Would have to be the best ice-cream I have ever eaten - and I have eaten plenty!

My English isn't that good, but i would say that this place does good ice cream. The best I have had on my trip here. The people were nice and it was a good way to spend a few minutes relaxing.

A warm night and a short walk home can only be made better by good food and excellent Gelati. Lots of choices, great flavours, and not too big a queue.

Very nice colorful shop. I really liked to see the older owner working and to read the sign about how it's 4th generation business. Things like that warm the heart. Huge range and very yummy but seems more like ice cream than gelati. Although the shop is clean and bright they need to move with the times - no Eftpos,... More

Great selection.....toooo many choices. Had to return on multiple occasions to sample more. Loved how they were open until late in the evening. A nice stroll to the shop after dinner.

So difficult to choose what to have! You definitely get service with a smile and could spend hours here trying all the flavours and watching life go by.

Great, flavours to choose from. Nothing like a refreshing gelati cone on a muggy warm day or night. Worth the visit.
