This place is so small and so very easy to miss because of that fact but the gelato and sorbet are delicious! If you are in Napier you definitely want to try this place out. Gluten Free and Dairy Free options available also so there...More

It's a shame that this restaurant has such an inconspicuous entrance, even though it stands on Marine Parade. There is only one small table with stools inside. Numerous awards line the walls and windows. All that aside, I would much rather order an authentic gelato...More

We stumbled across this place after strolling on Marine Parade. Very small and doesn’t look fancy. Ice cream is excellent, from consistency, to non artificial look and taste. We had several flavours, all great.

Excellent icecream, the best we had so far in the north island! And they make the icecream and everything by themselves👍

Popped in after a bike ride - three single scoop cones which seemed just right for size. Gelato was better than another well known local favourite that we went to the previous day. Service was ok rather than exceptional but the ice cream was great.
