Cannot recommend highly enough. Very generous portions are served with a smile by friendly staff. Try the Soursop, the coconut, the chocolate...just try them all, you won't be disappointed.

Best gelato I've ever had! Full of flavour and 100% natural! Such great service and atmosphere. When I come back to Cairns, I will definitely be popping in here again! Keep up the great work Gelocchio! :D

Best ice cream in cairns. Avoid all the others - chains and low quality. This one is handmade and 100% natural. Interesting flavours like soursop and Dragon fruit. Ask for a taste. The staff are very helpful and well informed. Recently listed in Gourmet (or Delicious- can't remember which one) which is why we hunted it down. Well worth while.

I purchased my favourite fruity sorbets dragonfruit and soursop but also had to indulge in the delicate turkish delight. Gelocchio never disappoints, the service and product are always impeccable.

This ice cream was more affordable than other shops we have been to. I had coconut and Baileys flavors. The ice cream didn't fit in the small cup though, so it melted all over our hands before we had a chance to eat it. It would be nice if it was served colder or in a bigger container. Being left...

Today i went back for the second time to Gelocchio and after having tried some other places around town i can honestly say this place is the best! You can actually see they use real fruit in their ice cream and sorbets!

We visited this place just 10 minutes before closing hour. The manager was completely friendly and kind. We tasted 6 delicious flavours. Good price. Definitely we will back.
