Can not fault this wonderful slice of heaven on earth. Amazing selection of flavours, enthusiastic staff and a genuine gelato artist who makes every visit a pleasure. I make a trip to Monella a priority whenever I make my way into town. Delicious!

Monella is my absolute FAVE! They have a huge range of delicious flavours and some awesome vegan options too. Quite busy of an evening but definitely worth the drive into town and the wait.

They make the gelato on site from scratch! It is simply delicious!! I recommend the mint choc chip, but they all looked scrumptious!!!

The ice-cream here is freshly made by hand and absolutely delicious. Even better than Messina. We landed up going back multiple times just so we could try all the different flavours. Highly recommend! 🍦

The flavour range is fantastic, and the ability to sample before buying is an added bonus. The gelato is creamy and flavoursome, however compared to some other gelato retailers in town their serving size is underwhelming for the price.
