“Great gelato in Sydney but quite expensive !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

a great gelateria in Kings Cross . Very busy Ice cream place , delicious flavours, really , but like everything else in Sydney very expensive.
a small cup will set you back $ 5 but I suppose it is worth it.

hi there, just letting you know a 1 scoop is only $4, and a tiny scoop is only $3.. we actually don't have any scoops priced at $5 (2 scoops are $6)... we are actually one of the cheapest gelaterias in sydney.. hope to see you again :)

“Wish there was an outlet in Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Great ice cream. I had the salted caramel and lychee/coconut flavours and was very happy with the choice. Lives up to the best Australian ice cream.

“Mmmmmmm This is Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The line up at either site is usually long however the wait is worth it as the team are pretty efficent . The flavours are inventive and tasty and far to many favourites to recommend one alone. Go for yourself you will not be disappointed

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

All the reviews are right. Simple, fantastic gelato. No need to say anything else really. The line can we long, but it is worth the wait.

“Best gelati ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Visited this place on a trip from adelaide over the australia day weekend. The line up went out the door and up the street but we were served very quickly and the staff were great. The gelati itself was absolutely amazing--you'll just have to go try it. We came back the next night because it was so good!!
