Great gelato with a variety of flavours. Not the cheapest but nice as a treat. Would definitely recommend the cherry and espresso! Best gelato outside of Italy!

I came back from bella just now. The dine out thing was totally....rubbish... I truly dont wanna say this but the salad and ice cream is cheating okay??? It does not worth 30 dollars at all. The pork rib I ordered as the main entre was..... only two little piece with a salad???????? I would never go there again. Neve

Had heard good things about this place so added it to our itinerary when visiting the harbour and fly over Canada. We could have been put off by the long queue outside but instead it fuelled our curiosity. The decision to wait paid off and we got to try the best ice cream we've ever had. The ice cream is...

The line ups are very long but it's worth the wait! There are many different flavors you can try before hand and espresso coffee as well. They literally have the best gelato I've ever had.

Very good gelato, decent service. We went here two nights in a row. It was excellent. They have some limited pastries in addition to the gelato. It was busy and there was a line but it did move quickly. Limited seating but its downtown so a nice area to walk around - may be a challenge during cold times. We... More

Never have been. However, met the owner at the intl gelato festival in May 2012 and the gelato he had made was very delicious. It was maple pecan. Very smooth, not overly sweet with maple flavouring, pecans were a nice touch instead of walnuts. Very nice treat for on a hot, sunny day. I did google it when we came... More

This is my favourite place to go for ice cream. They have many different chocolate flavors. The line ups are atrocious especially in the summer months.

This place is besides Earnest and Rocket Point, the best place for ice cream for us, in Vancouver. The flavors at Bella are good, the creaminess too, and the offer is wide enough. The only thing we would like is if the scoop size for the price was bigger.

We’d heard a great deal about this ice cream outlet, fortunately we didn’t experience the long lines outside (probably because it was -4 degrees and snowing outside). The flavours were very rich and the experience most enjoyable. They let you sample a few before deciding, which, given their prices, is probably a good and helpful thing. Would definitely return for... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
