We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines. Come and see how these old machines work, you may be lucky enough to get a sample straight out machine if you time it right. In store we make over 70 different flavours with 18 to choose from daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make delicious crepes and hot chocolate. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.

Superb

We had a 2 scoop ice cream each, which consisted of hokey pokey, sea salt caramel, lemon and white kiss. We tasted them all and what's not to like. Fantastic

We found Black gelato to be very busy on a hot Wanaka day, but were served quickly. There were plenty of choices of gelato; i didn't see icecream choices but it was stated on the menu. I chose cookies and cream and chocolate-found the the gelato a little lacking in taste and not creamy enough. Another time I would prefer... More

Really lovely gelato. They offer some fairly unusual flavours too including salted pistachio. The salted caramel was one of the nicest I've had.

Niece and nephew suggested I take them here....we went again and again - three times in four days! Speedy service, great range of flavours. I suggest you stand outside the small shop and try to make up your mind using the large signs outside to select what flavour/flavours you want! You can get extra spoons so you can try each... More

Very friendly staff and yummy icecream. Unfortunately they didn't have hazelnut icecream as the flavour of the day. But I gues, we will have to come back again!

Came across this place when we stopped for dinner and decided to get some gelato after fish and chips on the beach. Am so glad we did. They have AMAZING flavours and the staff were awesome. They let you try a couple different flavours if you weren't sure and the serving sizes were great for the price.

We tried several different flavors and all were excellent. Really creamy, soft Italian style gelato, and a good selection (15-20) of flavors.
