It's a nice excuse for an extended stroll home. Generous serve sizes for the cost, wide range of flavours and friendly staff!

Big generous ice cream cones or tubs to finish the night. Great to walk home in the warm evening eating these ice creams. Bring cash because that is the only way to pay. Always a crowd lining up to buy but they get through very quickly. There is a wall that shows pictures of the ice creams that helps you talk and select while you are waiting. Also do very good milkshakes for all the ice cream flavours for the same price as a cone.

Loved the pictorial menu with all the flavours positioned high on the wall so we could make our decisions while waiting in line (rather than feeling under pressure when it is your turn to order and the kids can finally see the flavours but need lots of time to decide). Good range of gelati and sorbet, both traditional flavours and some more unique ones. Decent-enough size doubles are $6.50 each. Toasted coconut and coffee were divine. A very traditional pistachio (marzipan-ey). good cassata. Burnt toffee tastes just like that. My daughter loved it. We will definitely go back.

I really like their gelato and their serving size is generous for the price. Only down fall was you can not taste before you buy, so it makes it hard for you to choose and end up sticking to the traditional just in case you end up hating what you bought.

Well we bought several gelatis during our stay in PD. Great selection and very yummy. It does get busy but what do you expect when they serve good stuff? Just be organised when you get to the front of the line and things go quickly and smoothly.
