We stoped here based on TA ranking. The gelato was not really very good-like they could not decide if it is gelato or bad ice cream. We have so much better gelato in Italy and even in other countries. I would pass on going here...More

Visited Black Peak Gelato because of the reviews, but I was disappointed with the taste (I had the Nougat & Choc Mint) - it's too sweet and 'flat'. The serving though, is generous! Get it only if you are looking for an ice-cream in Wanaka!

A wide variety of flavours to choose from and the sorbets are exceptionally refreshing. Always better from local sources.

Disappointing sorbet this visit, very sweet with very little in the way of identifying a particular flavor, I chose Lemon and Blackberry but could only taste sugar water.

Maybe I just picked the wrong flavours but wasn't worth the calories. The staff however were very friendly

Want to buy local - Here's the place to do it, and enjoy the product at the same time. Great flavours - good variety, and its where the locals go. Locally owned - A great choice and great views of the lake too!

We make outstanding homemade gelato and sorbets from a 70 year old Italian recipe that uses local produce- made with passion on the premises in vintage gelato machines. Come and see how these old machines work, you may be lucky enough to get a sample straight out machine if you time it right. In store we make over 90 different flavours with 18 to choose from daily. We cater for all dietary requirements with dairy free, gluten free, egg free, nut free flavours every day. If your in Wanaka over Winter we also make wicked hot chocolates. We hope you have a great time in Wanaka from all the Black Peak Gelato staff.
