Whether you go to the one in Darlinghurst or Surry Hills, the wait is always worth it. There's nothing better than a scoop or two of Gelato Messina after a meal or as a late night snack, especially in summer.

I love the 'special' flavours that changes on a daily basis, depending on what has taken the gelatiers fancy. But you can always count on the signature flavours, like the salted caramel with white chocolate, when the specials don't tickle your fancy.

I love their gelato so much I even eat it in the middle of winter, with the added upside of less crazy crowds.

Recommended the amazing little cakes from the laboratory... My birthday present to myself last year! Haven't tried a single thing that didn't make my mouth water. The biggest challenge is always choosing just a few flavors from the amazing range. Excellent all round!

I lived in Sydney in 2010 and still have nightmares from this amazing ice cream. We lived in Potts Point so not too far away from the Darlinghurst shop. everytime we went there was a new ice cream and always friendly ppl working there. would recommend it to everyone who went to Sydney

Since I discovered this place six weeks ago I have been back with my family 6 times! They have all become obsessed with the place and the flavours and once you like it on facebook you too will be hooked for life! Regular updates of the latest amazing flavours really inspires my gang to jump in the car and travel across the bridge way into the night! The gelato is fantastic, but the amazing specials board is what really gets you in. Weekly specials like "FBIcecream" - (vanilla and brown sugar with cinnamon donuts and raspberry jam smashed throughout) and "Oreogasm" - peanut gelato with Oreo custard and crushed Oreo biscuit truly inspire. Once these flavours have sold out there is no more. Quick....join the queue!

It is one of those things you must do. Everything is delicious it hard to not try more then one. Go with a group of people so you can try lots of different flavors. Just be prepared you my have to line up for a little while.
