We tried this place after another Gelati placed failed to live up to the expectation... Very impressive and very yummy ice-cream, we will be back before we leave to go back to Melbourne!

Good old fashioned gelato. On a hot summer day it's fantastic for walking around this great town. Sea Salt Carmel was our favorite.

My sister and I managed to eat here every day on our last trip - sea salt caramel was fantastic, would definitely recommend. FYI they're cash only so make sure you have enough on you, you don't want to miss out!

Was a bit disappointed sampling wasn't an option, but the other ice cream place I went to in PD didn't allow it either. Since I wasn't wanting to risk a bad experience, I got my favorite tiramisu and it was excellent. The small scoop was definitely small, but it was so tasty I didn't mind. Service was average, nothing remarkable.

So excited these guys had vegan options on their menu! We tried a really delicious creamy strawberry and a rich dark chocolate gelati. Very friendly and helpful lady.

No samples given which to me is very surprising , you should be able to try what you are going to eat. The lady that served us was snobbish and not friendly. Gelato not bad nothing special and a bit too sweet...

When you arrive, they only have pictures of the gelato on the wall like we were visiting an art gallery. Ice cream should be experiential. Part of the joy of eating ice cream starts with visualizing all of the flavors. They literally have the ice cream in the back of the store and its not accessible for customers to view.... More
