I can never drive past this delivious ice cream shop - no matter if in a hurry or not. It is authentic Italian ice cream and this is reflected in the flavours (a wide variety of them too).

After a spicy Indian meal nearby there was nothing better than to walk up the street and enjoy a great gelato. And as always the gelato here is outstanding. Coconut lychee my personal favourite. Highly recommended

Delicious ice cream especially strawbeerries and cream and salted caramel flavour. The staff was real nice as they give as many tastings as you wish

Beautiful experience, late night trips with loved ones are special with the classical gelato set out; I would seriously recommend this gelato ‘joint’.

Heard this was pretty good stuff. Tried the CryptoCurrency (intrigued by chocolate covered potato chips in peanut butter gelato). Wow.

Messina is definitely really yummy, but I don't 100% understand why people line up for ages for it or pay as much as they do... it's just gelato? Maybe soon I'll figure out what all the fuss is about!!

Brace yourself for a mob scene most tomes, but they still offer tastes before you commit. They usually feature a few really crazy flavors on the board as well as classics.

We were introduced to this Gelato ice cream by a friend who lived in Sydney. Having seen many long queues, we couldn't figure out why a Gelato ice cream would command such queues. However, just one bite and we could taste the answer. Creamy and...More

Control yourself if you can. We couldn’t. We left with gelato in cones and tubs. The flavours are all delicious so you can’t go wrong - it is gelato.

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
