The gelato really really good. Excellent quality and great selection of flavors. I highly recommend this place to try real gelato except Italy.

“great flavours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Excellent selection of flavours never seen in Italy. Gelato very tasty and certainly worth a stop. I cannot say I have not had occ'l better in Italy although this is a gold medal winner.

“Disappointed, pricey, not rich and creamy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

I love gelato and have enjoyed it in Italy as well as in many Italian restaurants and delis. My daughter and I were stunned at how average our 4 choices tasted. So much hype, so little payoff. Make sure you order the one flavor that actually won the competition in Italy. The rest are just so so and did not meet our expectations.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The gelato is simply amazing. I really don't think I've had better anywhere else, Italy included. It was a bit overwhelming at first because they have so many amazing looking flavours. They have a 3 sample limit so I tried to find the ones that appealed to me the most. It was such a tough decision because all the flavours look so appealing and the flavours I tried all tasted so good!
I wish I was in Vancouver more often so that I can come here for gelato. Next time I'm getting the 3 flavour cup!

“Great Little Spot at the Fairmont”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

This place is a great stop for a light dessert, tons of varieties of flavours and great service. Awesome patio outside and easy to get to from everywhere. Would definitely go there again, the Meyer Lemon with Zest was the best!
