The owner was very kind to give us tastes of his unusual flavors of gelato before we chose one. We asked for flavors we could not find anywhere else. We tried "smoked salmon" and several others and I bought the "ginger".

The standards are high, the products fantastic, the prices are reasonable - make sure you don't leave Nelson without trying this extraordinary ice-cream..

We have had gelato all over the world. No one is as creative as this man. We tasted a salmon-dill and mussell-lemon grass-ginger. Strange to the ear, and interesting to taste. The one's we bought were more usual flavors and excellent. The blackcurrent, chocolate with cinnamon and raisin, and another chocolate made with a popular Italian chocolate candy. All so very satisfying to my palate.

Fodor's guide-book stated that they serve an ice-cream Panini sandwich, but the woman at the counter had never heard of it. Didn't find any 'unique' flavors, although what we had was pretty good.

If you like different flavours, you'll love this place. I had banana and nutmeg one day, and avocado + roasted pumkin seeds another; and a couple of classics for quality check! Yummy!
