Reviews for Casa Del Gelato
12 days ago
I loved that they were open at 9.30 pm on a Saturday and they've got little tables to sit at. I had a scoop of tiramisu flavoured gelato and a scoop of salted caramel and both were disappointingly bland. The tiramisu needed much more coffee in it. The salted caramel was just sweet with no discernable caramel taste and could have handled more salt. There was one point while I was eating where I really had to remind myself what flavours I got! The sample of banoffee I tried was the same - just sweet with no obvious flavour.
However, my friend said her chocolate gelato was the most flavoursome she'd ever tasted.

After hearing some pretty sketchy reviews of the mt eden branch, finally decided to go one day after dinner last week. I was pleasantly suprised by the place. They had a small but delicious selection of gelatos. I ordered a cup with 3 flavours: ferrero, mango and aero. All were delicious but the mango took the top. definitely the best i've had. There are definitely better gelato places in my opinion but a good one for a local :)

This is our local ice cream place and we love it. While I wish it was open a little later in the evenings, it's a good place to get an ice cream cone and stroll through the village.
I think they're well priced for what you get and the ice cream is always tasty.
There are the standard flavours like tiramisu and snickers but there are also interesting flavours that pop up every now and then like watermelon and wild strawberry for the summer.
The staff are always super friendly and you can also order coffees and sundaes and cookie sandwiches. They also have vegan chocolate cookies for sale for $2.50 so there's something for everyone. I definitely recommend a trip to Casa Del Gelato if you're in the area.

With a selection of deliciously flavored Gelato.
I asked for a sample or two, to help me make a decision. The lady was more than accommodating.
We had ordered Black Forest dessert which was delicious.
Nice small place, friendly customer service. Will definitely go back for a treat again.

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!!
