As something of a connoisseur, in my view there are only two nations that make proper ice cream, Italy and New Zealand and at Giapo those two worlds come together creating ice cream heaven. Be prepared to pay more than you will at your average ice cream parlour but the gelato they serve is worth every penny. They have turned... More

Despite there's always a long queue waiting outside, this is a must eat dessert at Auckland city! Not only the ice cream itself is yummy, the beautiful decorations are just a work of art! And the queue doesn't take as long as we thought to get through. Also you can try the flavours before purchase - bonus! The flavours change... More

Exceptional gelato creations including donuts, Yorkshire puddings, all kinds of toppings, imaginative flavours. Such an inventive gourmet dessert experience! Be prepared for a long queue out the door of this tiny ice cream parlour, but well worth the wait. I have been there on evenings when they sell out of ice cream so don't leave it too late! Staff are... More

I am italian i went there with a lot of expectation (i know i shoudn't) but the price was ridiculous and the quality really nothing special There are other places in town with a much better rate Will not go again

This is an auckland instution; the man is a genius. This isn't your average ice cream shop, rather the mere act of buying your ice cream is an event. Each cone or cup is thoughtfully presented, and the flavours are second-to-none both for their ingenuity and quality. A must-do for visitors and locals alike!

From the minute we walked up to the door we were greeted with a small yummy chocolate drink and a friendly face! Choosing your ice cream is the hardest part ( because they are all nice) but well worth it! The ice creams are almost too good to eat because they are crafted with such care and creative flair!

Gastronomical delight is the only way that these creations can be described. A visual feast with each and every flavour having a signature presentation. A full on tastebud assault with flavours that are simply superb. The hardest thing is deciding which one to have. Even though you will be delighted with your choice you will still experience food envy with... More

Me & my partner have heard non stop 5 star reviews from our friends so planned a date night ending with gelato for dessert & man were are friends right. The service & the experience were outstanding as well of course the Gelato. They need a Michelin star. Absolutely incredible ♡♡

These ice creams are something else - they are everything you would ever want in a treat. They make you want to make every day cheat day. They'll make you fly across the world to taste their decadence, the perfect toppings and irresistibly crunchy cones. An ice cream by any other name would not taste as sweet!
