The BEST ice cream I’ve ever tasted. Hundreds of different flavours. Able to have a taster before deciding on flavours. Always friendly staff. Definitely recommend!

So many choices. Staff were very friendly and happy to let us taste test. We got the 5 share plate which was amazing and such value for money. Must try the ‘birthday cake’, ‘pistachio praline’ and ‘fig jam amaretto’ Would definitely go back!

A rewarding treat after our long walk from Chinatown on a warm February night. Reminded us of nightly strolls with gelato in Italy. We were grateful that they were open late on a Friday night (10 p.m.).

Messina always delivers the most delicious gelato! Nothing better on a hot day than trying out all the new flavours offered in store.

Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small
