I live the gelato here so much! It is always fantastic and fresh. For my birthday at The Star we bought a Black Forest gelato cake and it was out of this world!!!

This was a superb gelato shop. I went here with David to have a very tasty and indeed yummy treat. The gelato itself was a little to sugary for my liking but the taste wasn't as important as the feel, the atmosphere and the vibe...More

hi fanny, apologies.. we've chatted with management and she will have a word to the staff member. My guess is it was a miscommunication rather than straight up rudeness on our behalf. Our staff are generally lovely and we make sure they never rush people....More

Best gelato outside Italy. In fact better than some in Italy. Love the white choc salted caramel. Avoid it at the time the Lyric theatre has its interval or finishes.

Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney,
Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other
suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and
1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret
passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of
Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues
feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning.

Why do you not accept cards ? The first time I went there was to buy Gelato to take home for a dinner party, and went home empty handed because the local ATM wanted $2.50 to withdraw cash. I tried the store in Crown street and also Victoria Avenue, and neither accepted cards. How difficult is it to offer this service ?
