Reviews of Gelato Messina

  • Delicious gelato with a wide variety - I always pop by here to get my sugar fix. The staff are always helpful and welcoming so it makes picking a flavour that much more difficult! Nonetheless, I have never been disappointed with a flavour here and believe me, I've tried most of them!

    I will get slaughtered for my review by fellow reviewers but to be honest i can't see what the fuss is about this place. I have tried it a couple of times and i am just not convinced by the hype the icecream is good but not amazing. Definitely not worth the waiting on a long queue. Don't get me wrong I love icecream but i just don't get the hype and craze among people when you mention the word Messina or seeing the crazy queue... i have tried this place twice as well as their pop up store in the middle of Hyde park and still fail to understand why people go nuts over it and will to pay so much for it.
  • Went to this place a couple of months ago and have to say this was one of the best I have had. The bounty flavor is amazing. Will definitely go again soon.
  • Hands down in the top 3 gelato shops in Sydney. My favourite is the salted caramel and white chocolate; their bounty flavour (which might have been only temporarily available) is also fantastic. Only problem is the long lines on Saturday nights and the lack of any seating place.
  • Becoming a Sydney favourite for a reason! Love this joint. Try the Pear and Rhubarb, such an underrated signature flavour
  • Love Messina's weekly flavours - such great combinations to delight the senses, both in taste and textures.
  • Cool flavours. $12 for 5 scoops is pretty reasonable in this day and age. Ideal location, relaxed cafe-style. Love their balls (ice cream) and their wafers.
  • After trying few gelato places, I'd say they are above average. I have been to better places before.
  • Excellent gelato
  • It seems like the possibilities at Messina are endless! You can go wherever your tastebuds and your imagination desire, with so many amazing flavours to pick and mix from. My personal favourites amongst the staples are salted caramel and white chocolate, dulce de leche, tiramisu and pistachio, but then they roll out the daily specials and it's one of the toughest decisions you'll ever have to make! So avoid this dilemma and do what I do...eat nothing else before you get to Messina and nothing else after and allocate your complete daily calorie intake to Messina gelato! The Darlinghurst store also sells the most intricate and wonderful cakes, just perfect for a special occasion or just to have all to yourself! You may have to wait a few minutes to get your gelato fix because they get super busy (understandably) but you won't be disappointed. There are a few tables and chairs if you want to have your gelato there (this way you can go back for seconds or thirds) or you can have it to go and even take a tub home with you. I've had so much gelato in my life, from all over the world and I feel so lucky that the best I've had is right here at home in Sydney...you can't go wrong :)
