Been here twice and the service and ice cream have been good both times. They are generous with the samples which is good since my wife and I both tried a flavor that we did not like. Since this is convenient to Circular Quay, it’s...More

Stopped in with my son after a trip to the zoo today. The place is always busy and we had to wait a while to get served. The ice cream was nice though so worth waiting for. They also offer a good range of sizes....More

With a few "so called experts" on taste, flavour and texture in my family ...this was a necessary stop. I just loved the Nicky Glass salted caramel and coffee flavour. Pistachio, chocolate mint, salted caramel, strawberry and cream and yogurt and caramel and hazelnut are...More

We had two cones. One with tiramisu and chocolate, the other one, with mango and coconut pandan flavour. Both delicious! Messina is in Star City, close to the harbour. You can catch the light rail, it’s a good spot.

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

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!

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
