This place has the best gelato ever. The one I visited was on Lygon st a short cab ride from downtown Melb. Great restaurant up and down street so finished up with this gelato. What a treat. Smooth, creamy, generous servings. Try it.

We tried every single flavour that took our fancy and we've been back many more times. In fact just writing this review is... More

I was in the search for a gelato store that was relatively close to RMIT (the university in which I study), and I happened to come across Il Dolce Freddo. The range of flavours offered at Il Dolce Freddo far exceeded my expectations, ranging from chocolates to fruits. The serving size was quite generous, and the flavours, don't get me... More

Don't get caught up in the social hype of other Melbourne gelato shops, Il Dolce Freddo is hands down THE best in town! Not only is the product seriously amazing, the staff are absolutely wonderful! I have been coming here for 7 years now and it is always a pleasurable experience.
