“Pistachio!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

I don't know how many time we've been there, never lets me down. Just came back from Italy and tried the pistachio EVERYWHERE I went, never the same. Flavor is so good on this one and the nuts are shelled on site as I have seen it with my own eyes, no colorants, no industrial pistachio paste, no almonds to fill up and lower cost, just pure pistachio.

Flavors are rotated but this is an all time favorite so it stays, cashew is very good so as hazelnut and chocolate-hazelnut, cream and cookies... list is endless.

The owner is a very nice lady and takes good care of her business and looks for noting than top customer satisfaction. I'm a bargain hunter always looking for the Breyers Double Cream on sale, but if you want to treat yourself with something really good made from scratch and hep a local business, you should try it, you can't get that goodness at a supermarket.

“Not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

After reading the Trip Advisor reviews, we were eager to try this place. Unfortunately, it did not live up to expectations. Both the pistachio gelato and lemon sorbet lacked depth of flavor. We much prefer Stella Luna on Elgin Street.

“Nice gelato”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

Good product.

Gelato that were tried at this place varied each time we went. Evenings usually have a short lineup but it's well worth the wait.

I love to come here for a cone when I have something to celebrate. So many great flavors. Lychee and lemon are always refreshing.

“The Real Thing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Best gelato in Ottawa, by far. The customer service was fantastic, too! I had pistachio and hazelnut, and let me tell you, the gelato tastes as if biting into the real nut! A friend of mine had one of the berry ones and said the same thing. Super refreshing, specially on a hot Summer day!
PS: the cappuccino is awesome.
