We were staying around the corner so it became our stop of choice in the evening. The dark chocolate and the salted caramel were our firm favourites. Seating outside or in.

The Dark Chocolate Gelato is definitely one of our favourites, and it's great to pair with the Salted Caramel as well! We hope you had a wonderful time at D'oro, and hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here in Vancouver!

We apologize if this could have given off a vibe that our customers aren't welcome. Hopefully we can encourage you that this isn't the case, one of the best parts of our day is talking to our customers and seeing them enjoy our Italian treats!...More

Good authentic Italian gelato, very good texture and flavors! Only bad note is the price! For an Italian it's way too much!
