    This is the best ice cream in the world . Hand crafted divinely inspired love ice cream. If Picasso were an ice cream he would be Giap. Giapo has a huge heart he is the man. Never ever disappoints

    MUST DO, if you love ice-cream. Amazing owner & staff. Giapo Buono is the bestseller. You can try pretty much everything before you buy. A bit pricey but more of an experience in flavour & sight.

    Anything and everything is fantastic--this place is absurd, in a good way. Try anything that has a brûléed topping, they use a culinary torch to finish off the ice cream topping.

    Gelato will never be the same again. This is not your average gelato bar, it's actually an experience! It will not disappoint and the passionate staff makes you feel right at home

    I'm not afraid to say this is the best ice cream in the world! Peanut butter and banana is amazing, tiramissu is perfect, and all the others are very good too. Impossible to chose my favorite!

    This gelato's texture is heavenly, and their "accessorizing" has lots of bling. However, I found the ice cream short on taste, not near the intensity of flavor I've found at other artisanal shops.

    Known to be the best ice cream around town for years, although, I have noticed a slight change in the taste recently. Pistachio and dark chocolate are my go-to flavours 😻

    The best looking ice cream in Auckland! It's also very good, and the staff girls are very patience, beautiful and polite.

    Sold on taste, try as many as you like and the server then creates a delicious topping - a little more than normal starting at $10 but worth it as a treat!
