    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    Hands down the best Gelato in town. This man treats his craft as seriously as the most advanced chef treats his food. Only the freshest and best authentic ingredients. WELL worth the $$.

    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.

    Prepared to be blown away by the purity of flavours and complexity of textures. Try the intense espresso, distinctly peaty, Ileach Cask-strength Scotch and chocolate gelato. Read more

    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!

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

    Avoid the waffle cones. They can't handle the gelato that isn't made to proper standards. They're using generic cones. Gelato is not cold enough. It simply melts before you leave the store.

    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?

    So good! If you like dark chocolate you will love chocolat noir! Otherwise you can't go wrong with the caramel and sea salt! It's like kettlecorn gelato

    Winner of a bunch of awards and probably one of the best gelato places in Vancouver. Changing flavours - make sure to try the nut flavours.

    So many amazing flavors. Try the banana bread if they have it, and the salted hazelnut. For solid combos: dark chocolate scoop w/ yuzu scoop.

    If you see the owner, ask for a recommendation of different flavours. Be prepared to be amazed. This ain't ice cream, this is frozen art!

    Everybody is so excited about this place, and I totally didn't like it - overpriced, way too sweet, has nothing to do with real Italian ice cream... Never again!

    expect long or very long line. #protip you pay and then choose flavors. decide on size before you get to cashier; decide on flavors before you get to scooper. only 3 tastes per person!

    Not the best. Owner is ripping off people. He may know how to win competitions but he also knows how to rip off the consumer.
