I understand why Gelato2u has won so many awards. Great range of flavours, choice of cones or cups and fast service. Though I've tried others, I mostly go for my perennial favourite, hokey pokey.

Not the best gelato I have tasted but it was ok. Made a wander on a Sunday afternoon in the hot sun a bit nicer. Some innovative flavours that you wouldn't get elsewhere but don't know that it was enough to get me going back again.

I ordered the Log gelato cake apple pie and took it to my friend's place. They all loved it. The taste was the same as the real apple pie. Superb!!

While walking the streets of Napier, we happened upon this ice cream shop. On the walls were many awards it had won for outstanding ice cream. There were four of us in our party, and we all ordered a different Gelato. None of us was disappointed!

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.

It's a simple small shop with an array of exciting gelato flavors. Imagine a happy kid walking in to a candy store (in this case, ice cream store) and being greeted with a male staff whom was stern looking. No greetings and no smiles. As for the gelato - I was excited to try a few of the flavors but... More

If you are walking along the Marine Parade and want a refreshing cone of gelato, then cross the road (across from the information centre) and pick out your favorite flavor of gelato. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Not as good as what you might get in Italy, but better than a carton of ice cream from a freezer.

We walked in without knowing how good this ice cream would be. It was real fresh made in the same room the ice cream is sold. prices are good for the quality.
