An attraction as well as an ice cream store, La Casa Gelato is the most interesting, and probably the best gelato server in the city, offering over 200 flavours, including all the standards, many exotics, and some you'd never imagine possible. Free taste spoons available to help you choose. Our favourites include nut kulfi, coconut, basil pernod, chocolate chili, mango... More

There were 218 choices, count 'em 218, when we visited. They let you sample so you don't have to order without having a clue. Even though quite busy, the staff was friendly and accommodating. The sampling was part of the fun, then my gelato of choice (of course!).

This is the best gelato in Vanocuver. We visit only 6 times a year but it is truly is a wll deserved treat. It's a must go when we have out of town guests or are headed downtown for a concert or event. With over 200 flavours, who can resist trying a few new samples each visit. The staff are... More

Went to this shop with a group of family and friends. This was our first time but the other people have visited before. What a shop! Be sure to get your coin first so the servers know you are going to buy one. That way they don't have a problem giving you all the samples you want. There are some... More

We were tipped off by cousin to ask for samples .... which makes it even more difficult to choose from the 218 flavours! Have to be honest ... really didn´t like (in fact hated!) the garlic ice cream! Yuch! But the other 217 are fabulous!

Went here after dining out and what an experience! Unbelievable number of choices and flavors. It is great that you can walk around and sample any of the gelatos before having the difficult decision of which to buy. You wonder how they decide what flavors to make (like pesto and a good one called birthday cake) but hey, the place... More

La Casa Gelato continues to grow its selection of flavorful gelato and most everyone will find something worthy of a scoop from over 200 possible choices. Yes 200. Free samples are available IF you are there during a slow period. It wisely accounts for the diversifying community by offering flavors that no one would have imagined: kimchi, wasabi, gorgonzola, curry,... More

Tough even to narrow down to try a few to help you make your decision! Today, my first casa gelato decision was one scoop pineapple, coconut and macadamia nut. Delicious!

This is my go-to place for delicious ice cream, especially when I have friends or family visiting from out of town! Be aware in the summer time it will be incredibly busy, but be patient, take your time and enjoy the experience. They have 218 flavours to try, so you obviously can't try them all - so be realistic and... More

This is our family's favourite ice cream shop. The owner and his family are always on hand to make sure their amazing ice cream is served in a friendly and professional manner.
