Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is in an absolutely fantastic location. A quiet, Highstreet bustling with shops. This particular Shop has a wonderful selection of Gelato, Including Gluten Free Cones. Lots of vibrant flavours and a friendly owner. Overall, A beautifully small business you should visit.

Thanks Harry for the kind review ….

A place you MUST visit if you’re in Devon! Visited this place after trying quite a few different Ice cream places around Devon, and I can honestly say Delphini’s Gelato is exceptionally delightful that you cannot compare it to any other shops/small businesses as it...exceeds all others! From various flavours to choose from, we went for mint chocolate chip, and a combo of dark Belgian chocolate and pistachio. All three were pact with wholesome quality flavour and the cones that went with was worth every penny! Reasonably priced and well worth the trip. We were served by Johan who made our day with his outstanding service, after serving us we said our goodbyes and headed for the shops, with one lick of the gelato we turned right round and headed back to Delphini’s to buy take home tubs. Johan went the extra mile and exceeded our expectations and we’re finally able to share his irresistible Gelato with our extended family in London! Thank you and Robin for making our day and visit to Totnes a memorable moment - one that we won’t forget and hopefully be back for more next year! P.s can you please open Delphini’s in London!More

Absolutely love this place. I come to Devon yearly to visit family and this is always at the top of the list of places to visit. I had the strawberry ice cream and it was absolutely delicious.

We visited Totnes the third week of July, and we had ice cream from deplhinis every single day. The staff are friendly and helpful. The ice cream is out if this world. There are special ingredients in all of the ice-creams, and that is love...and passion, and it is very evident when you eat them. There are vegan options available and my wife has really enjoyed them. If they passed out Michelin stars for ice cream There is no bout delphini would be a recipient! Thank you for a lovely week of ice cream!More

Discovered on FB about a month ago and kept a note of this place to visit whilst in Devon - definitely worth the trip. Two sublime cones; one double dark chocolate and one hazelnut. Crisp wafer, creamy, perfect gelato with incredible flavours and a very...helpful host to answer a question or two prior to purchase. Seriously good.More

We visited Totnes, went for lunch but did not have dessert where we had lunch because I had heard of Delphini’s Gelato. We headed up the high street and found it on the right just after the arch with the clock. I went for a...cone with two scoops (raspberry & lime and strawberries & cream). Other ps went for Belgian chocolate and tiramisu. We all absolutely LOVED every mouthful. Absolutely delicious! Highly recommended… I wish I could eat this every day!More

About two thirty on very busy Saturday afternoon inTotnes main drag on the hill just short of the barber shop and the church. We’d notice several happy people grinning as they tucked in to dainty looking ice creams. The first person we asked was delighted...to point us at Delphini’s Gelato shop.But there was a queue of at least a dozen out and down the pavement. Had to wait pushing 20 mins but there was a choice from 12 flavours which come in cones or tubs. I went for the salted butter caramel. £3.79 didn’t seem at all unreasonable. They also have a coffee machine which seems popular too. They could have done with a couple of extra servers but maybe I’d picked the peak time of the week.More

I paid about £14 for 4 ice creams in their smallest cones. The serving was generous and came with a waffle wafer on top. We enjoyed the pistachio, butter caramel and strawberries and cream flavours and were only disappointed that Cherry had just run out....It closes at 5pm so get there in good time!More
