“HAVE IT ALL - You're on Holiday after all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

This family owned business and the women that work serving Gelato to the masses during the holidays deserve awards for customer service! They're Awesome!!! Not to mention they quickly move the line along efficiently during busy periods.

NOW - The Gelato... I've tried two scoops in a cone over several nights after dinner. I have to say ALL OF THEM GREAT!!! Highly recommend this little place with BIG AMAZING FLAVOR! You get a pick of so many different choices you will not be disappointed in the least.

“Wow! It's perfect every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

This place is a great stop for gelato. We mad a regular habit of it during our 2 weeks in Port Douglas. We don't leave for 4 more days and we have already been there 6 times (many hours will be spent on the treadmill to get rid of these calories - but they are so worth it)! The service is very friendly and family owners actually serve you. The really take great pride in their offerings and their service - so friendly! Sometimes there is quite a line out the front of this place spilling onto the sidewalk, but don't be worried - they do a great job of serving everyone in a timely and friendly manner.

“Great Gelati / Great People”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Great fun for children particularly since they can select their gelato flavors from large round pictures on the back wall. It makes the whole experience much more.interactive particularly for the smaller kids. The staff is super friendly and has a lot of patience for their little customers. For us, they went through a number of extra procedures to address the kids' nut allergies. They cleaned the ice cream scoops and filled a nut-free of container of hundreds and thousands so that their gelatos would not be contaminated. The parents appreciated it. We'll be back!

“Impressed with the Gelati”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Coming from the states and being a huge ice cream fan we were very pleased with not only the selection but the quality of gelato we received. The service was OK as they were not very busy but the gelato made up for it!

“so many choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Really nice gelato & so many flavour choices! Macadamia, Choc Hazelnut & Toasted Coconut are amongst my favourites. A nicely presented clean shop.
