“Great ice cream”

Description: We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines.

We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make wicked hot chocolates.

Scorching day in wanaka so headed here.

Queue outside which was promising.

Traditional flavours plus more unusual ones. Popcorn and coca cola flavours highly recommended

excellent selection of flavors but a bit too sweet for my liking, friendly and tolerant staff, great location on the main lake front and useful to have own carpark

Excellent gelato that you can tell is fresh and made daily by the owner. Fruit flavours are all from a Central Otago farm and taste amazing.

I was quite disappointed with the gelato. It didn't feel like it was fresh at all. The flavours were quite bland too. I would rather have an ice cream from a super market than have gelato from here.
