I'm sorry to say I was disappointed. With all the awards and hype I thought it would be so much better. We went to Italy last October and it was honestly much better. The servings were rather small and the price was high. Also there was not one CHOCOLATE choice!!

My wife and I have come here for lunch today after sightseeing. We were both famished and she who must be obeyed ordered a salad and I decided to go all American and had a burger. The food was fine but my wife's portion was very light on. We complained and to their credit they offered her another complimentary salad... More

We waited about 10 minutes and it was totally worth it. This place won awards in Italy and I can see why. It was very good.

We heard about this place on TA and walked over after dinner. We had three different flavors and all were excellent. Especially liked the burned sugar.

I had two flavours - Black Sesame and Green Tea - and they were super intense flavours which did not disappoint. I had tried to go just after lunchtime, but had to give up as the queue was over 30 mins long, but got in just before closure at 11pm with no queue. Price was reasonable and service friendly, would... More

Heard about this place and as an ice cream lover we went searching for it. It's a small shop with a huge lineup out the door. We had to wait for over 30 mins before we got our gelato. This is quite pricey but we had to try it and it was great!

Incredible gelato. The service was particularly good. Order it in a cone not the cup. The cone is a tasty waffle cone and they will fill the bottom of the cone with chocolate from the chocolate fountain.

Prepare for a line, we are told it is always long (at least 30 min.) The staff is friendly and fast. Do not expect to have inside seating, but a bathroom is near the cashier.

I can not possibly explain in words how good this stuff is. It is quite pricey but well worth it. You walk in, select what size you want, pay them & then you give your ticket to the person behind the counter for them to dip your gelato. It was a little over $11 for two single scoop bowls, quite... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
