Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you’re looking for the best Italian Icecream in Cairns, Gelocchio is the place to go. There is a great variety including the most classic once. Not absolutely delicious only but for a very fair price as well. Love this place!

There’s definitely fun in having ice creams while it’s raining outside and the flavors here does full justice to this feeling. Quite a lot to choose from, which means you’ll easily have decision fatigue but passion fruit and cheese cake doesn’t disappoint.

We felt this gelato quality was just like being in Italy! Very good and fresh ingredients with some local flavours. We tried pistachio, ferrero rocher, vanilla, rocky road and mint chocolate. The mint chocolate and pistachio were our favourites. They have a large selection of...vegan gelatos as well and a solid selection of regular varieties. The portions are huge and we paid $7 for a cone and $8 for a large cup. The only thing we didn't like was that you had to order a large to get three flavours but it is also hard to not like more gelato! You may want to consider a small one if you don't want a lot. The shop is located near the Esplanade and the night market with many good restaurants and shops nearby.More

Delicious gelato and efficient service! The line moved quickly, and servings were generous. My favorite flavor was passion fruit, but I heard no complaints from anyone in our large group.

There's so much to like about this little gelato bar in Cairns. The flavours we tried were superb (especially the two with cherry, and the blood orange sorbet), the serves were generous, and we received wonderful service. We went back for more a couple of...times during our stay in FNQ, and it will be the first place we head back to on our next visit to Cairns.More

Absolutely love Gelocchio!! Large range of flavours of both gelato and sorbet. Great value for money with generous serves. Honestly the best ice cream in Cairns (I know I’ve tried them all) Great service, especially the guy with the very dry sense of humour. Every...time I come up to Cairns we stop at Gelocchio, will definitely be back in the near future. 💗 your first customers for 2023More

We had a double scoop cone. It was delicious, though for me personally, it was slightly on the creamy side. Nevertheless, I still highly recommend it as the have some special varieties of flavours.
