Gelato Messina has become a Sydney foodie icon, and stayed that way thanks to its ability to constantly innovate and delight. Rather than sticking to the same old flavours, Messina has weekly specials that often have a funny twist or pop culture reference - these flavours are weird and wonderful (jam donut with peanut butter?) and always worth trying. That's the other beauty of Messina, you can ask for as many taster-spoons as you like! And you should. Sure there's a queue, but take your time while ordering, otherwise it's hardly worth it. Of course, the old favourites are still good, but they're not what keep the locals coming back.

We walked down to the Surry Hills outlet after a Saturday night dinner on a recommendation. A few of our group weren't prepared to wait, and a couple went to the bar next door for a drink rather than join the queue. There are so many flavours, it was hard to make a choice.
The staff hand out menus down the queue to give you time to decide. Everyone was happy with their selections, and we walked back to Central to justify extravagance.

I always love going to Messina for dessert with friends. With so many flavours to choose from and new options appearing regularly it's a sweet tooth's heaven! Hugely popular but the wait is worth it.

A friend recommended then I was pleased to see it was ranked highly on TA! We got there about 7pm and there was no line. Lovely staff who were happy to recommend flavours and give samples. Yoghurt Caramel and Salted coconut Mango were the winners- both amazing. We will be back.
