The first day I had Orange Licorice and a Coconut/Caramel Kiwi Ice Cream, but I have forgotten the name of this. Unusual texture and long, flavorful aftertaste. The second day I tried Eton Mess and Salty Caramel- equally delicious.
Some of the best ice cream I have ever eaten and boys serving who were cute. What could be better!

We fancied a nice cream while shopping in Auckland and came across this little gelateria. What a treat. Great ice cream, lots of extras (go for a waffle cone!!!) and friendly staff.

Okay, if you want a great gelato most people will think that anywhere with a 'Gelato' sign will do. WRONG. Everytime we go to Giapo in comparison to visiting somewhere else, there are always exciting new flavours and after elbowing eachother in amazement at them all we finally settle on something awesome! Also, if you are a vegan do not settle on sorbet options elsewhere as an icecream afterthought and get your hands on a creamy Siapo coconut cream caramel, pistachio, pineapple & Bergamot, cocoa or coconut sorbet instead! P.S Have you seen his blog? It's off the hook... AAAnd they only have ONE location so literally nowhere else in the world are you going to get this. It should be in New Zealand's Lonely Planet guide. It's also open late at night and is the perfect spot to take someone on a late night romantic walk through town.

For range of flavours and innovation this gelateria is hard to beat. Mango and green pepper ... simply stunning! I would sooner spend the money here and eat on the hoof than waste it on a traditional restaurant dessert.
