    line goes fast if you figure out your 3 flavours to sample before you get to the counter! but I'll save you some time- toasted pecan with maldon sea salt and maple syrup is the way to go 👍👍👍

    The gelato here is worth the lineup. Tried Ashka Mashti (saffron, rosewater, pistachio & cream) and banana bread as recommended, these flavours indeed are amazing. Right texture, not too icy or milky.

    Bella Gelateria’s James Coleridge won both the Jury and People's Choice awards at the 2012 Florence Gelato Festival. He uses quality ingredients to make unique, multiethnic flavors in small-batchs.

    I think this is some of the best gelato I've ever had! My favs were chocolate with Maldon sea salt, salted hazelnut, amarena cherry, banana bread and Akbar Masti. But you just can't go wrong here!

    Amazing gelato but definitely not the best in the world and not better than the creamy deliciousness found in Italy. But great for Vancouver with some great flavours and great location.

    They make you pay b4 sampling. Kinda stupid since you don't know how many flavors you'll like. You can try 3 flavors after u pay, try flower of milk, akbar mashti (pistachio), & earl grey w/ lavender.

    Kulfi has the most amazing combination of flavors. The entire menu is filled w/ unique flavors but sadly the girl behind the counter said the best sellers are chocolate & chocolate chip. What a waste

    Akbar mashti gelato is my absolute favourite. For cold and rainy days, try the hot chocolato (hot chocolate and gelato)--white hot chocolate + Akbar mashti is a great combination.

    Long line that moves quickly. A must-visit. Try the full bloom lavender; it's very flavorful without being too overpowering.

    Best gelato in the city and ranked as one of the top gelaterias in the world. James the gelato artisan is very approchable and knowledgable. The pistachio, marron glace, and chocolate is to die for!

    Try Akbar Mashti + faloodeh. Trust me you'll love it. I wish they'd give you more considering how expensive it is.The last time I went in they even weighed it. Really?

    One of the best gelatos in Vancouver but very expensive. Ordered 2 flavours for 5.95 plus tax, and it was the size of one scoop. They cheap out on the portions but the quality is really good. If yo
