“You must try this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

I never thought I would say this but the liquorice flavour gelato is outstanding! Last week I tried the coca-cola flavour combined with pavlova. Just brilliant. The guys keep coming up with great flavours and it's always exceptional quality. Great service and good prices.

Simply beautiful icecream. I had Cointreau orange and chocolate - a winning combination! Friendly service too.

These are definitely the best ice creams we have tasted for years. Just on the waterfront - don't miss it!! Loads of different flavours, all freshly made, and brilliant service

“real italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I would like to have the vanilla taste more like vanilla. it lacks flavour. the macademia was nice and so was the white kiss. but compared with Kapiti, the vanilla lacks flavour
