Tried it to see what the hype was. It was good but no better than a good gelato anywhere else. Loved that they don’t have taste tests....so no-one taking/wasting their time before you. Their serves were quite stingy for the price.

If you love Gelato you can’t miss Massimos ! Best gelato by far, comparable to great gelaterias anywhere.

The ice creams are delicious - but they are expensive. Having spent $28 on four ice creams the previous day - we returned but were told there was no vanilla or choc chip - the choice of the children. When we asked for them to taste something similar - the staff refused - we don't do taste tests !! So we can spend $28 each day - but you won't help us out here. No we don't do taste tests. I agree with previous reviews - the management is poor and the fun of an ice cream at the beach is reduced by lack of customer focus.

Have been frequenting Massimos during Noosa holidays for 25 years. It has always been a must visit during a Noosa stay. Was a little disappointed this visit and wondering if it has changed ownership? I asked if they had Bacio flavour (a Massimo staple) and staff had no idea what I was asking about. Prices have increased and gelato so soft it was melting before I could enjoy it. Will give it a go again next visit but found myself down the road at Ben & Jerry's on a couple of days as Massimo's seems to have lost it's spark.

Staff are rude - will not let you have a taste test.... not even little kids. All other options on the street will let children taste before they decide which one they want. When we went there it was empty - Avoid this place
