These guys are something. The ice cream flavours are one of kind and top notch quality. Endless combination of cones, topping, flavours, and ice cream "accessories".

I had never heard of Giapo, until my daughter said, "have you been to Giapo?" As a lover of ice cream I am amazed (having now been) as this place is unique and well worth visiting. Do not order a dessert at your restaurant go...More

If you are in Auckland then one must visit Giapo. This is probably good to call it as an Ice cream Boutique as the experience in here is different. You are greeted by a staff who asks you variety of questions and helps you find...More
