A few doors down from the more famous 'Gelato Messina', Gelatissimo has a range of equally delicious flavours - without all the trendy combos and prices. Even a couple of healthier, lower-fat options. Lots of fresh fruit flavours and the ever-popular caramel/coffee/chocolate variations. And it's...never as crowded as its neighbour.More

great for a post meal treat at any time. They have hundreds of flavours, sure to find one you like and they will let you taste 2 or 3 if you cant decide. Look out for groupons making it excellent value.

I buy ice creams here frequently and, although my favourites are always available, there is a great range to choose from, with interesting new flavours appearing regularly. The service is efficient and friendly.

Fantastic choice of Gelato and flavoured ice. They provide tastes and we actually purchased a large sculptured gelato as our Christmas Cake

Prices were average for Gelato but the flavours were great. The standard flavours of course but also some i'd never seen elsewhere. Great for a sample ands theres some seats inside too. Staff were friendly and knowledgable.

This place is exactly as described by its name. Large servings in cups or cones of a wide variety of different flavours of gelato. What more is there to say?

I've found that Australian Gelato places overall offer very good gelato but you pay a lot for it and here is no exception. Gelatissimo is great, but twice what I would pay in Italy for the same gelato. Does that make sense..? Still not sure......anyway it's the real deal here.More

The gelato was good, but not amazing (not Italy on a spoon!). We were disappointed by the customer service (and raised it with the staff at the time). The outlet do not clearly advertise a 50c transaction for using a card (including ATM cards with...Paywave, not just Visa cards) if the total amount spent is less than $10. Two small gelatos come to $9 something, and my husband did not take kindly to an extra 50c charge. The staff did not handle the matter well. I appreciate the restaurant will have merchant fees to pay at the bank in order to process cards - however if their merchant fees are that high they need to negotiate a better deal with the bank, or factor it into their pricing.More

A walk after a fab Thai banquet, then we were ready for something sweet. Caramel fig gelato was delicious.

Hi Kangachick, Thank you for your feedback. Caramel fig goes well with rum & raisin or chocolate (our top 3 flavors)
