I was quite disappointed with the gelato. It didn't feel like it was fresh at all. The flavours were quite bland too. I would rather have an ice cream from a super market than have gelato from here.

Coming from Auckland where the great gelato Giapo stands, slightly disappointed with it.It has quite a number of flavours but pretty single flavoured, doesn't challenge much of curiousity

Thank you for your review and hope you had a great time in Wanaka.
You are correct in saying the flavours are singular and true to there name. We do this on purpose as this is how it was done in Tuscany 70 years ago where our recipes originated. We therefore offer our gelato lovers the opportunity to combine the flavours, as all our cones and cups are 2 / 3 flavours for the same price. I apologise if this was not made clear to you.
On any given day we'll have 18 flavours on offer out of the 63 we make. However, if you have any suggestions, we are always open to new and exciting ideas!
Thank you.

Black peak is an awesome addition to wanaka with great quality icecream and gelato. great flavours with a local flare (local fruits and ingredients). I love the banana which really tastes like banana rather than banana flavouring. malteser isnt bad either.
