The ice cream was a solid 8 out of 10. We have visited many ice cream stores around the world, and this rates up as very good. There was a good flavor, and creaminess. The staff was friendly.

We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines. Come and see how these old machines work, you may be lucky enough to get a sample straight out machine if you time it right. In store we make over 90 different flavours with 18 to choose from daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make wicked hot chocolates. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.
