This one is my regular place for gelati. They have non dairy chocolate sorbet which is out of this world and the lemon and basil sorbet so refreshing and zingy. Service is wonderful, the ingredients are all fresh and made in store so its not a chain and its the real deal. Drop in for a tasting and try some... More

As a local, I think that this little gem is THE BEST for gelati, and there are many in Cairns. I am addicted to the Amarella - tart cherry, creamy vanilla and streaks of chocolate with crunchy bits too, Yum!!!

I love gelocchio. Definitely my favorite place for ice cream in cairns. Ice cream like in Italy. Nice to enjoy delicious ice cream right on the esplanade.

When you have strolled The Esplanade, head for Gelocchio for the best gelato we have tasted outside of Italy. They are at Shop 9/93 The Esplanade. The service is great, friendly, and personable and the gelatos are made to a family recipe. Try the Nocciola or the deadly chocolate. Enjoy!

Over the years I have eaten my body weight in gelato (a couple of times)!! This was one of the best gelato shops I have been to. Warm greeting from a young rooster, I find out later was the owner. A couple of samples no issues. Then I tucked into 3 large traditional Italian scoops. Yummo!!

Novel shop with great ice cream at a reasonable price, quite different to the usual type of ice creameries around. You can choose between home made icy poles or ice creams dipped in warm, yummy dark chocolate.

My favourite is Amarella. But hey don't stop there. Vanilla is good so is salted caramel and all the others. Keep going back til you've tried them all
