“Sooo Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Pannacotta and caramel gelato. Enough said. Ok I have to say a little more since there is a 100 character minimum. It was really really good.

“Great ices, open reasonably late for PD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Popped in for ice cream late one night: good, fun range of flavors, ice cream tasted excellent. There are many ice cream vendors on Macrossan, all were really pretty good, we felt Shakes was the best.

“Great flavours and not too bad on the hips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The is The BEST gelati/ice-cream place in town. I don't eat dairy or egg and they have made ordering so easy by labelling their ice-creams appropriately. If only they made the coconut and the pistachio ones without milk! I'd buy it by the bucket load - although, i doubt it would last the trip home to Melb. Who cares anyway, I'd eat it all by then.
A great place to get a nice refreshing bowl or cone of true authentic gelati. The chocolate, passionfruit and mango are the best flavours. All natural ingredients, and they're not high in fat either. And the store is clean and fresh looking.
The best part, aside from the flavours, is the little cups they put it in. We kept ours and now use them for other things. They're so handy :)
You can't go to Port Douglas and not get a gelati from here. It would be plain wrong, and 'unAustralian'. Well, sort of…it is a traditional Italian gelati bar!
Great gelati and a great place to visit.
