Tastes good but quite expensive. What I liked here is the free taste so you can make sure that you get a scoop of what really tickles your taste buds. Their chocolate gelato is very very chocolatey!

Easily the most unnatural tasting frozen dessert one can buy  in cebu. If you have not had really ice cream, and admittedly it is rare in Cebu, then you won’t have any idea how bad this stuff is, not to mention how unhealthy it is for your body. This is not a restaurant!!!

When traveling to the Philippines, you don't do it expecting delicious food. They're not known for having any tasty dishes in my opinion. With that said, Gelatissimo is pretty good with tons of different flavors that both taste good and look good! If you doubt it or are siding with the negative reviews, go in and try as many free...

Highly processed gelato that comes from a single flavor pack which is then combined with other artificial varieties to make the other flavors. I tasted 8 different chocolates and boy were they similar. Not rich in a creamy sense but had a very "fake" taste. Nothing at all like real italian gelato.

If you like Italian ice cream - this is the place. Lot's of delicious flavors to chose from. After having dinner at, for example, "Banana Leaf" we end up here for dessert. P 100- is enough to spend per person.

yes, they offer something the city that doesn't really have.. unique? maybe.. but taste? just like another gelato ice cream.. at the end, you're just paying for the status symbol that you can afford it. it's not that good.

The best ice cream I have ever eaten was at Gelatissimo, My friend convinced me to eat in Gelatissimo, I was so hesitant because of the price. But when i tried to ordered Chili Chocolate Gelato thingy. WOW. Thats just worth it. Can wait to visit again Gelatissimo and try the other flavors.
