What a great find having been to many ice cream parlours all over the globe, this one really takes the biscuit. It's an art form with them, a fantastic experience for us the consumers. Presentation-Taste-Favour were all the absolute best I have EVER had. Highly recommend by me maximum score.

Before I went to Giapo quite often as their ice cream is just delicious. I haven't been back for a while though as they have blocked to see the ice cream. Now costumers chose their ice cream after a sample. Ok, you can have as many samples as you like but this is not what I enjoy as it takes... More

This is not your normal chocolate and vanilla ice cream shop. A VIP works out at $8 and a cone $15, but does include all the toppings and dome come with donuts or even Yorkshire pudding. You can't miss it. Just look for the queue.

Part my through eating my icecream, I stopped my husband and said, "we need to acknowledge this moment - this is the best icecream we are ever going to eat in our lives." It really is fantastic.

Really good, ice cream flavours constantly change which is great, I do however find that their "toppings" can be overly sweet at times.

Unique ice cream! So worth a visit I have never seen anything like it. Not a place to go if you want to dictate exactly what you want as they serve it how they want to, but super unique and yummy.

You don't go to Giapo for a simple scoop of ice cream. You go to wait in line with anticipation (worth it), you go to be treated like a first class passenger, you go to sample all the flavors, you go to get an artful creation of delicious proportions. A must eat!

Great ice cream. Works of art. And very good customer service. They take their time with you, once you get through the long line, and let you try lots of flavors.

Interesting and fun flavors. Creative approach. Gelato can be served on various desserts and toppings are unique. I had avocado gelato with white chocolate and chocolate covered macadamia nuts. This a a very rich treat!

the specialty cones are works of art and priced accordingly. ice cream was nice and creamy with flavors of the day, exclusive of what this usa person thinks of a regular. no vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chip, etc. one, two scoop specialty cone was $25.
