Best, true Italian gelato icecream!! Don't bother with any other impostors in Lygon Street, or in Melbourne at all. Even though it may get busy, you will be served quickly and it is most certainly worth the wait. The chili chocolate is the bomb.

And don't forget there is a chocolate dipped waffle cone that is just bellisimo!! Mmm

Smooth, creamy and wonderfully flavoured gelato. Traditional, has been there for many years, and the quality has not changed. Great place for gelato!

Took the whole family here after a restaurant meal as we have done many times over the last 25 years ... What can I say other than 'bellisimo'.

Rather than pay over $70 for desserts elsewhere we came here and had beautiful gelato for $30.

We all have a variety of tastes to cater for and this Carlton institution never disappoints.

Finding a parking space is always a nightmare in Lygon Street but patience and a bit of a walk eventually pays off.

There was a bit of a wait which was understandable as ice cream takes time to serve and the place was packed but they get through the customers pretty fast.

We were lucky enough to score a table outside where we could all sit down (usually as rare as a car space LOL).

At $5 for a small cup it is not cheap but it is so good they deserve to get that price and is in line with other, inferior ice cream places.

(I noticed the soy flavours after I had ordered so will definitely try them next time).

This place is perfecto !

If yu want to try soy based gelato, then here's a place. They have about 6-8 flavours of soy based gelato from memory. I tried the choc which was interesting and true to the soy nutty flavour.
As for other flavours, my family said that the gelato wasn't as good as Messina Gelato in Sydney. Sorry.... Store was busy and well placed in Lygon St. Across the road from Forza Italia souvenir shop.
