“Gelato Galore!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

I was in the search for a gelato store that was relatively close to RMIT (the university in which I study), and I happened to come across Il Dolce Freddo. The range of flavours offered at Il Dolce Freddo far exceeded my expectations, ranging from chocolates to fruits. The serving size was quite generous, and the flavours, don't get me started on the flavours.. they just exploded on my tastebuds, every granule of strawberry was present, and it had the right amount of punch.

“The best in town!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Don't get caught up in the social hype of other Melbourne gelato shops, Il Dolce Freddo is hands down THE best in town! Not only is the product seriously amazing, the staff are absolutely wonderful! I have been coming here for 7 years now and it is always a pleasurable experience.

“10/10 GELATI”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Friendly staff who know what they are talking about! About time as well. We are saturated by so much pretentiousness in Melbourne so it's refreshing to finally receive down to earth service with a 10/10 product. Best gelati I have had in 40 years.

“Next door to another gem, great dessert!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We stumbled upon this great ice cream place after we had a superb dinner at the Carlton Curry House. Then we found out later it was even higher up on the Tripadvisor ratings list! Very tasty ice cream with friendly service, even on a cold night!
