Amazing, surprising gelato, firstly not being able to see what you pick is a little exciting..only reading from the menu... Although being able to try any flavour builds the excitement. This is truly an eating experience . Great funny staff add to the intrigue.. Remember don't go I a full tummy..

Well worth the additional money for this place, so much more quality than ice cream. Genuine ingredients used with interesting combos. Staff always let you have samples to try in store. Gigantic portion sizes offered.

This place... whoa! best icecream and sorbet i've ever had and served in a delicious choc-lined waffle cone and topped with all sorts of inventive and delicious extras. Good thing I don't live in Auckland or I would be very fat and poor! the ice cream is fairly expensive (mine was about $8) but the price is totally justified.

Delicious icecream that ISN'T that regular boring overly sweet blarrghh icecream that you tend to find in New Zealand. Unique beautiful flavours! This place is always buzzing. Definitely check out this place if your around Auckland. You're looking at prices starting from $6.50 but its definitely worth it :). They tell you a bit about Giapo when you walk in and then give you some tatsings. Excellent service - GO THERE!

We went here twice in two days. On the Friday, it was quiet but that would be as it was the middle of a week day. On the Saturday, it also being the day of the Bledislowe Cup match, there was a queue coming out of the shop, a proper queue. They have very unusual flavours, as well as some old favourites, perhaps with a twist though. The even have special "deluxe" cones and cups, which are expensive but great. The ice cream was amazing, their portion sizes were very generous and the servers were very nice. Due to price, however, definitely more of a treat than a regular thing.
