“Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

This place certainly lives up to it´s good ratings. Delicious gelato.. I picked chocolate and nutella, and have absolutely no regrets!

Nice located in Little Italy in Lygon Street.
Will come back here for sure!

“It was excellent 10 years ago...it's still as good now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I first tried the gelato here 10 years ago. It's even better than anything I've had in Italy and elsewhere. I finally had the opportunity to revisit this place in June 2013. Still as good as ever. Had the following flavours - Roche, Pistachio, Hazelnut, Pandan & Coconut - all fantastic!

“You can always judge a gelato place by its pistachio flavour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

I asked to try their pistachio gelato as I have heard from an expert once that this is the best way to judge a good gelato place. And sure as heck it was amazing!!!!

Also their snickers gelato is divine. If I could have more than 2 scoops in my waffle cone I would so do it :-) the staff are nice and polite.

Will definitely go back again.

“More please!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

If you want to experience what real ice cream tastes like, then this is the place. Do yourself a Flavour and just try it... As good as the best I've had in Sicily, the home of ice cream!

“going back for more”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

it was the BEST gelato i had in a long while, they had some new flavors that we tried and were amazing, also the basic flavors were great, very nice seating outside on a quit street .
the gelato was fruity, flavorsome and came with a waffle, the lady serving the Gelato was very nice and patient as we took our time choosing and mixing flavoring, Absolutely going back when we visit Melbourne.
