    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.

    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 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

    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.

    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

    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!

    Milkshake with Mint choc chips gelato is AMAZING! If that's not available, a Giapo Hazlenut and Tahitian Vanilla milkshake is also incredible :D

    The goats cheese, walnut & honey is a sensation, though not for the faint-hearted. So many flavours so come early & often!

    Go to Giapo and get the banana. Or just stand around when the shop's empty and get a steady stream of free samples.

    Instead of eating gelato, why not drink it? Get a milkshake with your favourite flavour.
