If you love authentic Italian gelati, Pidapipo is the delightful Italian treat waiting to be tried and tested by you! With lines weaving down the street, it is no secret that Pidapipo may have the best ice cream in Melbourne. With three locations across Melbourne including Windsor, Carlton and the CBD, Pidapipo is there to satisfy your sugar cravings! Flavours change seasonally, but we recommend sinking your teeth into the fresh and fruity flavours of summer!

Gelateria Primavera

Gelateria Primavera is Spring Street’s best hidden gem. Specifically, not a franchise and hidden within Spring Street Grocers, Gelateria Primavera feels like Melbourne’s best-kept ice cream secret. The simplest flavours are accentuated to a new level of delicious. Trying the classic flavours here will help remind you why they are the classics.

Our last and almost our favourite (Shh!) gelateria to grace Melbourne, is of course Messina! With three locations around Melbourne (Fitzroy, Richmond and Windsor), Messina is covering all their bases. An abundance of flavours with varying dietary requirements (egg-free, alcohol-free, dairy-free, and vegan options available also) and a mixture of classics with new inventive flavours will be a delight for your taste buds.
