“Perfection! Agree - best Gelati in Brisbane!”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

You want true Gelati made on the real Italian recipe and organic ingredients daily!

Gerry and Lee, the owners, definitely have something amazing going here!! The flavours are to die for and change daily so there's always something fabulous to try. I have enjoyed macadamia and honey in a waffle cone. Truly bliss!!

Highly recommend this place to anyone. It is sensational on all levels.

Great price and service with a smile. You can even get take home packs... So very dangerous and devilish.

Always back for more!!! Nom Nom Nom + lick lick lick!!

“Best Gelato in Brisbane”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Real quality product made possible with the combination of fresh seasonal produce and the passion of the Italian born owner. As a regular visitor I love seeing what flavors are available on the always-changing menu, and have never been dissatisfied. Definitely on par with the fond memories from Italy.

“If you've been to Italy, you'll know this is exactly like real Italian Gelato, not ice cream posing as Gelato”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

The first two times I went here I was underwhelmed. However, I was willing to persist because so many really credible food critics have rated this place the best Gelateria in Brisbane. Maybe I was hoping for the elaborately beautiful displays of the Gelato that you see in Italy. You will not get that here. All the beautiful flavours are tucked away in their silver canisters until they are scooped out for you. There is a sign up over the counter that lists the current flavours. This time I tried Salted Caramel and also Honey. Salted Caramel was a bit adventurous but the flavour worked. The Honey was absolutely divine. There was about 12 different flavours of fruit based sorbet; chocolate, caramel, honey, pistaccio, walnut, and other more adventurous flavour combinations. You can get it served in cups or cones. They only take cash, no EFTPOS available. You can tell that this is beautiful, natural gelato and not creamy ice cream posing as Gelati, as you see in so many places now.

“Home made gelato with real flavours”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

We really like this gelato - it is possibly the best in Brisbane and we have driven from the other side of Brisbane to come here when craving a sweet treat. They make the gelato themselves, and use real ingredients - for example, the strawberry gelato tastes like REAL strawberries, not artificial strawberry flavours. They have all the usual standard flavours, but also have ones that you won't get at any other gelato shop in Brisbane. They seem to experiment and try out new flavours. Not all of them are ones I would personally try (eg. hot cross bun) but I appreciate them trying new things and branching out. They also have less commonly found flavours such as black sesame or green tea which is nice.

We would recommend this place - definitely visit if you are in the area.

“The Wow factor!!”
Reviewed October 13, 2011

This Gelato shop is the reall deal!
I'm a big cold deserts lover and have eaten many of it all over the world. Gelatria Cremona makes seriously the best Gelato & Sorbets ever!!! I had a good look in their kitchen and all ingredients they use are real and fresh, what makes this shop really unique.
Strawberry sorbet is made with fresh fruit and so it taste like real strawberries. The Tiramisu gelato is made with fresh mascarpone cheese and fresh coffee. I even saw them grinding all sort of nuts!!
And they show us that they are real masters of Gelato by making Vegemite gelato on Australian day (dont worry they also do lemington gelato), Guinness Beer for St Patrick's day, Strawberry/rose and lavender for Valentines day, Christmas pudding for December and Anzac for Anzac day. But also unique flavours as real liquorice gelato, Gorgonzola & pear gelato, Indian Kulfi (pistachio, almond, ricotta, cardamon) or very nice the Honeyed figs and Ricotta.

For that I'm shocked to hear from Mmm Manda that she call this 'average ice cream', while she mentioned Re Del Gelato in new farm as good gelato place... First of all the difference between Ice Cream and Gelato is that Ice cream has heaps more fat and heaps more air in their product. Gelato is clean, lean and full of taste. Well and have a look in the kitchen of 'Re Del Gelato' and look at these big blue tins saying 'pre-gel'. That is a ready made paste, filled with artificial flavours and concervatives. They give that product a nice decoration and sell it as 'real italian gelato', but it is not. It's fat and the flavours are far from reall. So maybe your taste buts like more 'artificial'?

As far as I understood from the master chef of Cremona, they don't use any artificial anything. And their product is the leanest you can find on the market.
