This shop always a must visit spot for travelers, as they got many special taste gelato to be choose, and also they always change to different flavour to surprise you. Just one thing I would like to complain is their gelato is too sweet. That would be better if they provide some gelato in less sweet option.

Sydney-siders can be a bit sheep-like. If something gets any kind of publicity, some people will travel great distances just to go there, and this applies to Gelato Messina. Yes, it's good, but there are a lot of other gelato places in Sydney that is better.

No matter where you go out in Sydney, dinner with friends, a coffee catch up, a beer at the pub, there is always a little radar in the back of your mind with a proximity sensor pinging the nearest Gelato Messina location. At some appropriately polite interval after your outing the pinging will grow irresistible and you or one of... More

I love Messina, its a shame I dont live closer to one of their stores. They have tasty, innovative flavours and their cakes are a work of art. I would love to do one of their classes but they sell out too quickly. My fav is Robert Brownie Junior and Salted Caramel and White Chocolate. They will let you sample... More

Can't argue with perfection. So many flavours to choose from and and not enough time or room in your tummy to sample them all. The only negative is all the inconsiderate people lining up outside, blocking you from immediate access to the mouth watering delights of Gelato Messina. Enjoyyyyyy :-)

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
