First time to taste it and it was awesome. Good scoop size and many flavours to choose from. I like the pistachio praline. No wonder their flavours have been honoured by TimTam.

Love the flavour choice at Messina. If you think a normal gelato place is hard to choose what you want then wait to you go here, takes me at least ten minutes every time we go 😂.

The ice-cream here tastes amazing! As close to Italy's gelato. The unique flavour they have to offer makes your mouth water before you even order. The best thing is the staff allows you to try or sample flavour before you choose. They also offer coffee....More

Messina always have a broad range of flavours to try. They'll always be bringing out new ones and they also have their regular favourites hanging around too. I'm never disappointed when I try a new flavour! Definitely must visit!

I visited Messina just on the passing weekend and enjoyed a coffee gelato in a cone. The coffee had great flavor and the cone was respectable. I recently returned from a trip to Italy so my gelato standards are quite high but Messina compares well.

Come on folks gelato is supposed to be fun. Grumpy and rude staff are not a good start and leave a lasting negative impression. At least the gelato itself saves the day.

Visited Messina because many people recommended it but somehow I thought it was overrated. Or maybe my expectations were too high. Had a scoop of House Tyrell on cone for AUD 5.3p - it was good but I wouldn’t say it was something to shout...More

I absolutely love it here - I can’t get past the blood orange, raspberry, and salted caramel. Worth every cent.

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
