I went to the University of Melbourne, so I frequented Lygon St a lot as an undergraduate. As a result, I have tried every gelateria along the strip several times, and this is my absolute favourite.
Lots of flavours available for you to mix and match, from delicious creamy options to the lighter, fruity choices.
The servings are generous, and the staff are happy to let you try a few flavours as you perfect the perfect flavour combo.
Buy yourself a cup (or cone), then wander into the neighbouring park to enjoy it as the hubbub of Lygon St rolls past. It's the perfect way to end an evening.

This is a must have for anyone who visits Lygon street. Ice cream so smooth and creamy with many choices. There is even durian flavor if you dare try. All in all a delightful gastronomical experience. I just love it!

It is a big call but being no spring chicken and having tried lots of ice cream, I have today this is the best I have tried. Luckily I don't live nearby, it is too addictive

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! :(
