“More please!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

If you want to experience what real ice cream tastes like, then this is the place. Do yourself a Flavour and just try it... As good as the best I've had in Sicily, the home of ice cream!

“going back for more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

it was the BEST gelato i had in a long while, they had some new flavors that we tried and were amazing, also the basic flavors were great, very nice seating outside on a quit street .
the gelato was fruity, flavorsome and came with a waffle, the lady serving the Gelato was very nice and patient as we took our time choosing and mixing flavoring, Absolutely going back when we visit Melbourne.

“The best icecream this side of Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Not only do they have nearly every flavour you can think of in gelato - including Durian. It is also the creamist, fruitest and extraordinary gelato you will ever taste! Plus it is pretty cheap as well, offering good prices on scoops, cones and cups.

This is the perfect place to visit in summer in Melbourne, after a long walk through the city, seeing a movie at Nova or after having dinner on Lygon street.

“Creamiest gelato ever tasted outside of Europe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Gelato in the Lygon district...the Little Italy of Melbourne.

Sweet attendant was patient with us wanting to taste so many flavors before deciding on salted caramel, coffee, and chocolate for $6.60. Cup came with a waffle cone triangle. Creamy goodness on a spoon!
