Went at about 9 at night and the line up was out the door. From fruit flavours to salted chocolate there were so many flavours to choose. So glad that you got to pick two flavours for a small. We all tried something different and...we all loved our choices. Would highly recommend for a late night treat.More

I had the rum and raisin and lemon sorbet and they were both super nice. The service is friendly and there is a convenient set of benches to sit on outside.

We decided to skip our dessert options while dining out and take walk and get some gelato we kept hearing about. So glad we did. So many choices! We will all be back! If you’ve not been yet you need to!

Always great. Been going for 6 years, since my family moved to Kingston. Love the polite staff, and the options are seemingly limitless.

Went every night we were in Kingston. I heavily recommend the passion fruit Gelato. (and the Cherry chocolate). A great way to top off a meal at one of the great restaurants around the area.

Busy spot on a hot Monday afternoon--but wort the wait! After a long walk, flavours of Earl Grey, ginger peach, and mojito hit the spot...other members in our party equally thrilled with their choices. Generous sizes and friendly staff. Nice benches outside to sit down...and enjoy.More

What better time to eat gelato than after a hot summer afternoon spent at Fort Henry? We walked to Mio Gelato as soon as we got back to the hotel. The lineup was all the way to the door (we have seen it go past...the door and onto the sidewalk) but it was moving which was the important thing. There was time to have a quick look at the menu board (as expected, expensive gelato--$6.63 for small, $7.96 for large) and read the flavours written in front of each pan. There were 3 display counters in total and the coloured scoops (blue, green, red, white) were to differentiate the classic Italian gelato from the sorbetto and dairy-free and the frozen yogurt. I'm not exactly sure if people paid much attention to this info. In fact, it's visual overload once you're in front of the gelato display counter. There were 12 + 18 + 18 flavours to choose from but I was not happy when I realized they did not have my all-time favourite--pistachio. We each ordered large 3 flavour cups ($7.96) and between ourselves got amaretto, dulce de leche, peanut butter & jam, rocky road, pralines & cream, stracciatella and cookie dough. The young masked servers worked pretty fast. They hand you your order and you pay at the counter near the entrance. We were out of there in 6 mins. We were supposed to enjoy our gelato at Battery Park but the gelato started to melt as soon as we were outside. Our fingers got covered in sticky gooey drips faster than we could spoon the gelato--and we forgot to get napkins! All I remember was: it was okay and it was a drippy mess. We rushed back to the hotel so we could wash our hands and eat what's left of our gelato in the comfort of our hotel room.More

I loved the chocolate. There are so many choices that it is difficult to make up your mind if you don't know what you want when you go in. The portion sizes are very good. We loves the small cones.

Very tasty gelato! The pricing felt a little steep, but the service was friendly and the taste was excellent. Would definitely go again if it weren't for the fact that I was only visiting Kingston

Right downtown. Make sure you have room for this dessert after your meal.. A very wide selection of scrumptious gelatos. A couple of serving size, not cheap put worth the money. 2 flavours in the cup. Glad I don't live in Kingston because I would...go broke buying gelatos every day.More

March may not be prime Gelato season, but I was very glad I stopped in! Flavours were delicious, and I was able to sample before making my final decision.

A perfect stop for a sunny day. They offer the traditional gelato in addition to sorbets. I can't remember how many flavors they had, but for sure there is one that fits you.

We went for a cold treat on a hot day. We had the “small”, which was 2 scoops in a cone. My partner had a scoop of lemon and scoop of pear, I had maple blueberry and pralines and cream. Portions were generous and my...partner who is very particular about “ice cream” thought it was some of the best he has ever had. Needless to say, before we went back the next day. Very organized in managing COVID restrictions, they had three identical serving stations divided by plexiglass and the same flavours in all three.More
