“Delicious Gelato!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

My group was in Cairns in May, 2014. We discovered Gelocchio at the Night Markets our first night in Cairns and went back every night. The tidy little shop was inviting and the variety of flavors made it hard to decide which to try. The owner was very friendly and was happy to take our change that we were trying to spend before our return to the USA. The amaretto cherry was my favorite, but I always tried a different flavor as my 2nd scoop! Yes, there are other gelato shops at The Esplanade, but their selections were rather plain and one of the shops looked a little dirty. Wish I could have a scoop from Gelocchio right now, but I'm in Tennessee!

“Much Better In Cairns...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations...

The ice cream was ok but not exceptional...

I was expecting something more after reading all the great reviews...

“Best ice cream in Cairns”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Gelocchio ice cream is some of the best I've had. Always a delicious range of flavours from Baileys or mojito to tropical fruit. You can have a range of chocolate and nuts on top. Their cones are super tasty but you can also have home made ice blocks (the lemon and strawberry is the best). I blame Gelocchio for my high standard of ice cream but I'm sure glad it exists.

“Delicious, authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

With so much choice in Cairns its easy for this gem to get lost amongst the competition. Go seek this place out, brilliant friendly owners and amazing flavours. My girlfriend loved the handcrafted coffee and amaretto ice block! I had biscotti and pistachio and would recommend! Prices are reasonable too, good value :)
