“Indulge your Sweet Tooth!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I cannot resist gelato and ice cream. Walking through the food court area, there it was right in front of me. I knew I had to get my sweet tooth satisfied. Hey, I didn't eat dessert at dinner.

I tried several flavors before making my choice. Well, actually, I tried a lot. The person behind the counter seemed to be getting irritated with me. I can't help it though with all the flavor being offered, how would I know which one is good or not to order?

I decided on the yoghurt and caramel & the chocolate fondant. The chocolate fondant is only for chocolate lovers. The intense flavor of chocolate is overpowering. Yhis one I really liked. The yoghurt and caramel was also a good accompany with it due to the tartness of the yoghurt.

If I had another day, I would have gotten the pannacotta with fig Jam and amaretti biscuit and the tiramisu. Unfortunately it'll have to wait till next time.

“Special Place for a Treat”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

I like this place because it isn't a prefab chain. It has its own unique character. The gelato is tasty and well priced. It's in a fun part of Sydney. You can tell it is appreciated by locals and tourists

The best in Sydney and a great atmosphere inside and outside as gelato addicts scramble to score a scoop of wickedness. A must do, go after a pizza at Lucios Pizzaria round the corner and pretend you're having a night in Naples or Rome

“mmm… gelato”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Best gelato ever! This is a cash only venue that almost always has a queue but is well worth the wait. The seating is very, very limited - designed to prop and eat quickly. Love Elvis the Fat Years special…

“Words cannot describe”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

This was hands down the best gelato I've had and the hardest decision I had to make. Every flavor was scrumptious and original. If I lives in Sydney I would get fat just on this gelato alone. Their cakes also look great.
