I always have this ice cream whenever Im in Melbourne! The most disappointing thing about il dolce freddo is that it's not open for winter (from July to end August)! All flavours are very delicious and they offer tasters as well, so dont be afraid to ask for some. Portions are rather generous as well. Parking in the area is a little tough especially at night!

Pistachio, tiramaisu, pandan coconut, cookie, lime, lychee, chocolate, salted caramel and many more!
If you've never had gelato, you MUST try it, more soft and creamy than ice-cream, I think it's made from milk and not cream- anyway, $5 for a double scoop/two-flavour cup was quite good I thought. Open from 12:30 til late (10:30 or something) on a weekday. Now I just want to go back! :(

Talk about ill founded awards....between us we had six flavours and it was really hard to distinguish the different between flavours.....we consider ourselves gelato connoiseurs....having eaten gelato around the globe including Italy, New York, Middle East and downtown Sydney....Leichhardt, Haberfield and Five dock. Give this one a miss and do yourself a favzour and head up the road a block or so to an Argentinian gelato maker...JAUJA. Fantastic clean tasty yummy, delicious grlato. No flavourings, gelatine etc. The BEST.

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!

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!
