“Best gelato around!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

I had the nutella gelato and was surprised that it genuinely tasted like nutella!! The coconut gelato was fantastic too! Do yourself a favour and make sure you come try a scoop or two.

“Best gelato in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Well, I've had gelato in France, Italy and Australia. Can't claim to have visited every gelateria in the world (although i'll give it a red hot go!) but i've had my fair share and this is good stuff.

The place is run by an older Italian lady. She seems to employ a fair amount of locals which is great. Sitting and eating a 2 flavour cup in the afternoon after a day at the beach is one of my favourite things to do in Caloundra.

The flavours are electric. I usually get the chocolate and raspberry but the vanilla is amazing and the non dairy, fruitier ones are great as well.

The walls are indeed covered in their awards and they have the odd issue of Italia magazine lying around in case you want to have a coffee and a cone and sit for a while dreaming of a trip to Italy!

“Always a tradition to eat here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013 via mobile

The wall is full of awards for their lovely ice cream. The gelato and sorbet is better than you can get anywhere in Italy. Highly recommended to eat here. You wont be disappointed.

“Best gelati ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013 via mobile

Have been enjoying the Milano gelati for many years - so nice to still find a place that makes its own product & is not part of an international franchise. My favorites: Pistachio and Panacotta

“Sorbet dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

I came here to pick up some sorbet for dessert one night after eating at another restaurant in Caloundra. They only had raspberry, chocolate, guava and one other flavour left of the sorbet at night time. They were tasy but a little steep on price for the size.

GelateriaMilano, Owner at Gelateria Milano, responded to this review, 14 July 2013
Hi Emma, thanks for giving us four stars. It is unfortunate that you made it to our shop only after closing time, and you could only find 4 flavours left of the 12 sorbets that we usually have in the display. Our usual trading hours are from 11am until 9pm on most days (we are usually closed on Mondays). So, if next time you are in Caloundra can make it here before 9 pm you will have the option of 12 different sorbets, while others in your company can also have 12 different ice creams to choose from. We use all natural ingredients from local producers, and organic when we can (as for the Guava). We don't inflate our ice creams or sorbets with lots of air or add any artificial flavouring to them, as it happens in many other places. We pride ourselves on the quality and consistency of our product, and catering for those with special dietary requirements. We hope to see you again on your next visit to Caloundra, take care.
