So many choices and that all sounded great. I ended up narrowing it down to salted caramel and quite chocolate or salted coconut with mango salsa! The salted caramel won and it was sooooo worth it! Will have to return for a follow up chaser...More

Love going here when in Circular Quay. Well presented and friendly staff. Good prices and wide variety of flavours. My Italian visitors always go here when at Circular Quay.

Visiting with friends after a delicious dinner and drinks. Perfect way to cap off the night! Have visited the Messina before in Glebe and the city one was equally as gorgeous. Will definitely be back very soon for another lovely dessert!

Loved the texture and the quality of the ingredients. The pistachio, pistachio praline and Hazelnut were the best. A little let down by Nicky's Glasses. But a wonderful treat all the same. Will be back!

We always go to Messina when we are in Sydney. Their ice creams are delicious and they offer the best value for money. There's always a queue outside!

The gelato is reliably good at all of the Messinas, but service seems to be particularly good at this location.

After a long hot tour of the Opera House and the Botanical Gardens, we were in need of a cool treat and the folks at the Opera House recommended Messina. I cannot thank them enough. The fruit (lemon and raspberry) sorbets were intense in flavor...More

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
