Tonight after dinner we took a walk down to this delightful spot. It was busy and we now know why... The gelato is fresh, smooth and gorgeous! My family enjoyed tiramisu, coffee and Oreo gelato. We sat outside at the little tables on this beautiful night. Best gelato in Ottawa!!!🍨🍦

I visit this place about once a week or so during the summer and always it is a nice way to beat the heat. Usually I have some variation of chocolate , especially with nuts. Have also tried the raspberry gelato.

Decided to stop in here for a quick, light and relatively cheap dessert after spending a small fortune at Giovanni's Italian Restaurant! Everyone took a different flavour among the dozen or so offered. All were very good and made fresh on site. Price was reasonable and their "small" portion is enough to satisfy your tastebuds and stomach, especially after a... More

Our children, in-law and granddaughter ordered gelatos from Gelatini on a peaceful, sunny afternoon. We ate them outside at street side tables in Little Italy. The different flavours were very satisfying. We would return without question.

They provide good gelato for the selections available. The only limitation from making this a really great gelato place is that the flavours are the standard set - vanilla, chocolate, raspberry etc. Perhaps on other days they provide a more diverse set of flavours. Please note that the location is **not** accessible for persons with physical disabilities - wheelchairs cannot... More

We live in Little Italy, but have tried all the other gelaterias in town, and this remains the hands-down best gelato around. Made from ingredients like hand-ground-in-the-shop pistachios, the flavours are always sharp and fresh and taste exactly like real fruit, nuts, chocolate, etc. Gelatini's gelatos are also not cloyingly sweet, which is a nice change. I would particularly recommend... More

The assortment of flavours is great. They use fresh and natural ingredients and often change their offerings. Service was friendly and prompt. Outside seating in great on warmer days.....and inside seating if it's cooler or wet. A nice addition to Ottawa's Little Italy.

Love this place, and especially love that they do not restrict the number of flavours you can ask for (assuming you're reasonable). Highly recommend.

16 homemade flavours to choose. And you can choose any combo. We had four different flavours in a take home tub. If you like cinnamon don't miss that one. Yum

This place serves among the best gelato I have tasted anywhere! Service is friendly and efficient. Patio tables available out front. A trip to Ottawa's Little Italy is not complete without a gelato or sorbet from Gelatini!
