The ice cream made here is probably the best i've ever had and i've had quite a few, they offer something for everyone, even those lactose intolerant. Best Gelato In Australia.

We all enjoyed your birthday cake! Gelocchio is always our favourite gelato shop in Cains! The staff are friendly! We ordered a birthday cake before and they gave us good advice about flavour combination and we all enjoyed the cake very much!
