Always have a room for a gelato / ice cream, that would be our "tummy" rules. We've decided to go to Gelato Messina after having dinner around South Yarra area. It was very easy to find this gelato shop because of its strategic location. You...More

Visited Messina because many people recommended it but somehow I thought it was overrated. Or maybe my expectations were too high. Had a scoop of House Tyrell on cone for AUD 5.3p - it was good but I wouldn’t say it was something to shout...More

I absolutely love it here - I can’t get past the blood orange, raspberry, and salted caramel. Worth every cent.

Great service, great choice, amazing taste ! They even have vegan and gluten free for who needs :) And they use the Liven app so I get 15% cash back all the time !

I'm sorry that I only discovered it on the last day. I thought it was the only one but found out that there are more stores. A must visit for any Gelato lover.

After eating at Jimmy Grants around the corner, we had dessert at Gelato Messina and couldn't go past the iconic Apple Pie flavour. The store was warm and inviting with subdued lighting and low music on a winters night and the gelato was delicious.

Always stop here after eating out on smith street, lots of flavours to choose from. Always a big crowd which means it must be good.

Went on Friday night and it was packed. Every imaginable flavor of gelato you can imagine. Fun music. Sounded like a club but was a gelato place :) Lines out the door even late on a Feb evening. Did not disappoint

Crowded should show that the product is excellent. If you like over-buttery, floury gelato, then Messina is for you. Not me. They do have some of the traditional flavours, which is nice, but their ice cream is nowhere near the gelato quality of places like...More

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
