I tried the tiramisu and the Bailey's ice creams and both were delicious! Very recommendable, I'll come back the next time I'm in cairns.

Lovely ice cream made on-premises - best in Cairns and we won't go anywhere else now. We take interstate visitors there and all agree and want to go back, including two people who chose it as their last stop before the airport to say goodbye to Cairns

The ice cream was excellent and the staff super friendly! Also perfect location close to the esplanade. Give it a try to the Soursop ice cream is really nice!

What a great place-fantastic choices,very generous serves,very reasonably priced and as for the taste-out of this world. It rates as one of the best in Australia-we had a Gelati every day whilst in Cairns(1 week). Highly recommend. The owner is a delightful young and clever young man from Prague,and we wish him every success in his growing business.

Dear Bruce, We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful review, and think so highly of our product. We simply would like to mention that our product and store are Italian, managed by a young man from Prague. We simply wanted to mention this, to avoid any confusion with our local customers. Once again thank... More

If you have an ice cream in cairns you must try Gelocchio. Friendly service, fabulous choice, generous portions and competitively priced. My favourite - the cherry, but then again .....

Gelocchio is our favourite place in Cairns. We spent a month here and after a week discovered this little gem. My son used his pocket money from doing chores to buy 2 Amarello ice creams every week. However, we went for gelato in total 9 times. It was fresh, tasty and the portions are nearly double that of everywhere else... More

Cannot recommend highly enough. Very generous portions are served with a smile by friendly staff. Try the Soursop, the coconut, the chocolate...just try them all, you won't be disappointed.
