When I first went there it was awesome, I have picture of my Ice cream from this shop for years to be my picture of my applications. creative and lovely people working there. the last time i went which is just two weeks ago, The gay who served us was not even happy. Forget the smile, i'd say it looked annoyed when we ordered the ice cream. :( sad really... but i still enjoy the ice cream

I am generally disciplined in not going over the top with ice cream. But honestly, having a Giapo icecream is one of my simple plesures in life. Yes, yes, its much better than the gelatos I had in Italy and I mean it. Part of the Giapo experience is to see your treat being dressed up as its simply not just naked ice-cream. Its dressed up for a ball and every lick and mouthful become a sheer lingering delight. I usually go for the tiramisu. Hint: dont simply go on what you see in the cabinet as its visually sensual when you see it being tarted up , perhaps with rose petals, chocky bits, a tiny profiterole with a smooth chocky heart..... I love it. Hint: sitting space is limited. Get your treat and then get down to the Imax Mall on your right ( when you leave the shop) . Lots of seats and space there. Was this helpful? If yep, then please click :"yes" so I know that you will go "Yay!! Giapo Gelato, Better than all the Rest!! :)))

I came here every day I was in Auckland, it was better than the gelato I had in Italy, the chocolate sorbet and the coconut sorbet were amazing. My mouth is watering now just thinking about it.

The best of all worlds in a serving of ice cream fantasy.
We're regulars, but are still amazed every time they bring out a new flavour.

Expensive, tricky cup size..but money spent well worth the essence of Gelato Ice cream invented in Giapo Ice Cream.
