We stopped for Gelato after dinner on a Monday and it blew our minds. I got a medium in a cup, because medium means reasonable size generally. It was massive! 4 different flavours and a generous portion of each!! I had raspberry, white kiss, kiss (kiss = chocolate and hazelnut) and chocolate. It was a delightful combination. I could barely... More

Friends had been raving about this little gelato shop after visiting for over 20 years so they took us here on our latest trip. Casa Del Gelato has the most incredible tasting gelato I can see why they keep coming back. Lots of different flavours to choose from.

This place has been around a long time and the gelato is excellent. Heaps of flavours to choose from. Three flavours in a waffle cone- $7.00. The shop is very clean and the staff is efficient. Must try and enjoy watching the world go by in Lygon Street!

Fantastic variety, excellent taste and variety. Not expensive at all given the quality. Appreciate the Italian pictures nick nacks to add to feeling of a European gelataria and Italian Melbourne heritage. Pity staff were a little distant and not really enthusiastic.

Ridiculous number of flavors; well known for the amazing Bacci flavor, but you can't go wrong (except when it's closed over winter for some time :-( ), a perfect end to a Lygon St meal - don't get dessert at a Lygon St restaurant, grab a gelati here and stroll Lygon St. Best ever !

I had a beautiful combination of Burnt Caramelised Fig, Lychee and Raspberry in a waffle cone. I recommend these flavours together and they were all fabulous!

Staying in Lygon Street

Neighbourhood Profile
Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who started their day with a local espresso. They are gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this Little Italy which has something for everyone. Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way they do it "back home" and maybe even a bit of amore. The number of gelato choices will leave you in a state of indecision and wide footpaths, big awnings and a sea of packed tables makes this al fresco dining experience a continental buzz. Even if you’re not eating, it’s worth the stroll just for the people-watching, which, of course, is an Italian tradition.
