“Fabulous flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Delicious Italian gelato, numerous flavors to choose from. It was very busy, but service was quick. A bit of confusion on where to order & pay. Prices are $4 for a small cone, but you can have 2 flavors...bonus, when you can't decide.

“Very good ice cream in Leaside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Hollywood Gelate is always crowded, and for a reason. The ice cream is very good indeed. It is certainly as good as Greg's, though not quite up to the standard set by Il gelatiere on Mt Pleasant Road. Still, Hollywood Gelato is well worth visiting after a meal elsewhere or just to get a cone or a cup. Highly recommended.

“Vikings love Hollywood gelato”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is my favourite gelato place in Toronto. They may not have 80 different flavours like some of the other places, but the flavours they do have been made fresh, not from a mix, and haven't been sitting in the freezer for a couple of weeks. So far this year I have spent $290 and believe it to be an excellent return on my investment. When it gets busy, seating is at a premium so try to factor that in. It's not a super fast process because all of the staff I have dealt with take the time to answer customers questions. If you want fast, go to a variety store and pick up a drumstick. If you want heavenly gelato, go to Hollywood. The owner Enzo is quite the character, so go have some fun.

“Best ice cream in Toronto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

The ice cream here is amazing! I never tried a flavour I didn't like. They let you try as many flavours as you want. The people here are just amazing!

“Amazing gelato!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

All the gelato at this shop is made at the shop!! Fresh! There are lots of flavors in the warmer months, more limited in Winter. In summer the lineups are long...because the gelato is SO worth waiting for!! Special flavors are made at different times of the year...pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving for one. I love the mars flavor and the coconut. This place is voted 'best' year after year for a reason. None of their gelato is made from a mix but made from fresh ingredients and new flavors are being created continually.
