Yum. Delicious and great service which I might add. Although a small shop and quite crowded, in the end it was worth it

Giapo Ice-cream was absolutely fantastic! From the way they only let you taste instead of see the ice-cream (which was an awesome experience) to the way my icecream was served with the hardened hokey pokey and chocolate topping.

How can you skip this place? It's a gelato experience like no where else! The price is high but you get something amazing. However I wouldn't get a deluxe cone again, just too much for me - the gelato is rich so a plain waffle cone or just a regular cup I believe is a much better match (yes, we... More

As something of a connoisseur, in my view there are only two nations that make proper ice cream, Italy and New Zealand and at Giapo those two worlds come together creating ice cream heaven. Be prepared to pay more than you will at your average ice cream parlour but the gelato they serve is worth every penny. They have turned... More

Despite there's always a long queue waiting outside, this is a must eat dessert at Auckland city! Not only the ice cream itself is yummy, the beautiful decorations are just a work of art! And the queue doesn't take as long as we thought to get through. Also you can try the flavours before purchase - bonus! The flavours change... More

Exceptional gelato creations including donuts, Yorkshire puddings, all kinds of toppings, imaginative flavours. Such an inventive gourmet dessert experience! Be prepared for a long queue out the door of this tiny ice cream parlour, but well worth the wait. I have been there on evenings when they sell out of ice cream so don't leave it too late! Staff are... More

I am italian i went there with a lot of expectation (i know i shoudn't) but the price was ridiculous and the quality really nothing special There are other places in town with a much better rate Will not go again

This is an auckland instution; the man is a genius. This isn't your average ice cream shop, rather the mere act of buying your ice cream is an event. Each cone or cup is thoughtfully presented, and the flavours are second-to-none both for their ingenuity and quality. A must-do for visitors and locals alike!

From the minute we walked up to the door we were greeted with a small yummy chocolate drink and a friendly face! Choosing your ice cream is the hardest part ( because they are all nice) but well worth it! The ice creams are almost too good to eat because they are crafted with such care and creative flair!
