Reviews for Casa Del Gelato

They only open for afternoons, but this is a great place to treat yourself in the heart of the Mt Eden Village. You can have it in a cone or cup, same price, which I super appreciate since everyone usually charges more for the cone. I'm a fan of cones. The waffle cone here was delicious, not chewy or weird like it had been sitting out for ages and had a nice gentle flavour. I find a lot of cones nowadays are getting rather bland, like eating paper or something. They have all sorts of flavours from the classics like chocolate and mango sorbet to interesting chocolate-bar-themed flavours like Aero (mint with chocolate chips, which is pictured here and was absolutely delicious on a blisteringly hot summer day), Crunchie and Ferrero Rocher. They serve generous scoops to you and there's some nice table and chairs near the window where you can enjoy while people watching. You definitely have to visit here and try some on a hot day!

The serving of ice cream was pathetic and small even though I ordered a double scoop cone. The flavour was acceptable but the service was not good. Would not visit again as the lady who served the ice cream was rude and impatient.

Went here for some dessert after dinner. The gelato itself was pretty great but the service wasn't the best.

Went here after my birthday dinner for a nice dessert. It was magic. I have eaten much gelato and this is very well presented, delicious and the service was very good. They do not have a very wide selection compared to many other places, but with that decadence, who needs to go overboard?
I hope to be heading back more often, considering its just down the road from us.

I understand that this is an ice cream joint...
But can I say one thing....
O.M.G... The magic and precision in the hands of that girl behind the counter... making me... are you ready for this......
THE BEST MOCHA.. That's right.. THE BEST MOCHA... I have ever had in my past 9 years as a mochaccino sipper...
I am sure the ice creams are delightful as well...
But that girl.. she has got the Mocha down to a fine art...
But I have not gone back since.. Just in case it was a 1 off.. Hehe!!
