Reviewed June 6, 2014

Worthy of all the great reviews, best gelato in Sydney, such a great variety of flavours. Follow them on Facebook to hear what the special flavours are when they're released..... if you live in Sydney or are staying somewhere with a freezer buy a tub, much more cost effective ($10 for 500ml tub vs $7 for a 3 scoop cone) - you won't regret it! We've been here too many times - the gelato 'cakes' are great for parties!

“Great gelato and fantastic array of flavours”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

This is one of the hidden secrets in the downstairs food court in The Star casino but if you are in the area and love gelato this is a definite place to seek out. Just a gelato bar, but the flavours are exotic and there are always new flavours on offer. Over the Christmas period they were doing such things as Christmas pudding, white christmas, and some other brandied versions. On my last visit, fig pannacotta with another ingredient, and fig mascapone caught my attention. What I love is that if you are deliberating over flavours you can get a taste..After tasting the both fig preparations a pear and rhubarb flavour caugth my eye and that is what I settled on. At $4.30 for one scoop and $6 for two this is a place to head for if you are in the area. There are plenty of places to seat in the food area or pop outside and stroll around the park or the maritime museum which are nearby

“Best in Sydney”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Everything they have here is so yummy and nicely presented. My husband couldn't resist and had to have seconds and I was tormented by watching him.
The next time we are in Sydney I think we will be buying everything they have.

A great place!

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

Went to the darling hurst shop.
Think we arrived quite late on a weekday and there wasn't much of a queue. Wasn't bothered too much anyway it took me that long so choose what I wanted. Sooo many amazing flavours!
Only $6 for two scoops! Definitely would go back!
