Description: In the heart of the historic St. Lawrence Market, G For Gelato and Pizza Bar serves the finest gelato in Toronto, made with recipes passed down in the Polsinelli family for years. From classic roasted pistachio to creative flavor pairings like coconut basil, blueberry lavender, and London Fog (vanilla and Earl Grey tea), we make our gelato using the freshest ingredients and source many seasonal fruits and veggies from local farmers markets. In our cozy, rustic space, we also serve hand-tossed thin crust pizzas as well as foccacia paninis, frittatas, pastas, and fresh salads. Start your morning with our hand-crafted coffee and espresso drinks paired with a sweet pastry, or sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch with our house favorite funghi pizza, a white pizza topped with mixed mushrooms, fresh arugula, and a drizzle of truffle oil. Need to bring a taste of Italy to your next celebration or corporate luncheon? We also cater and deliver at your convenience. For a sweet break in your day, sit and stay with us at G For Gelato and Pizza Bar for traditional Italian dishes, quiet conversations, and the best gelato in Toronto. We hope to see you soon!

Their gelato is the best in town. Tried a few different places but nothing can beat G for Gelato. Lots of flavours to choose from. Glad to find this place.

“Yummy ice cream and great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Best ice cream I've tasted in my life! Also a lot of choices, hard ones!

Staff was awesome, helped us out with some information to get around in the city.
One girl in particular was really nice and shared my chocolate passion. The salted type was both our favourites :)

“Lots of original flavours to chose from”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I popped in for a medium ice cream (2 flavours). I chose the basil/coconut and salted caramel. It was good but a little too sweet for my palette. They have loads of flavours to chose from and it is very clean.

“Great Gelato, friendly staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Gelato is delicious however I'm not very picky, they have a wide selection of flavours. Place gets busy in the early evening. Kids love it. Dad's wallet not so much. Pretty pricey even for an upscale place.

“Good Gelato”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Not sure if this place deserves the overall #2 spot on TripAdvisor to be honest. They have good gelato thats for sure and I have yet to try the food. I got a medium (with 2 flavours, salted chocolate and almond) and it came to just over $5 which is a good value. They let you try ample samples- their ticketing system seems little not necessary, perhaps when it is really busy it makes sense?

Anyway- the gelato is good and I would return.
