The gelatos here are simply awesome! The best part of the branch in Ibn Batutta is - Customer Service. Very patient and polite staff. No wonder there are more people visitng this kiosk than the London Dairy shop right across!

Called in one evening when it was quiet. Friendly greeting and left to make a choice from a large menu. I may be old but a fresh gelato hits the spot every time. Not too expensive either

A little expensive, didn't offer a cup of water with the gelato. It was nice to eat while watching the fountain at 1800 with friends and family.

Just what I needed after a very hot meal on the terrace. A bit expensive. But that's how it is. Lots of flavours. Dread to think what the calories were!

We dropped into Gelato in Dubai Mall after watching the fountains and ordered 2 different flavoured "ice creams"..... Awful "ice cream" tasted of flavoured vegetable oil - could not finish it and threw the rest in a bin. The ICE CREAM we had the next day at the nearby Haagen-Dazs is REAL ice cream - yum !!

What I personally liked out here in the "Gelato" was their ice cream. It was indeed very different then the others and that is why I assume its called the "GELATO"

If you are a lover of pasta, this is among the best in town- their pizzas are nothing to write home about, but their pastas are really superb.
