We all enjoyed your birthday cake! Gelocchio is always our favourite gelato shop in Cains! The staff are friendly! We ordered a birthday cake before and they gave us good advice about flavour combination and we all enjoyed the cake very much!

Here you find a real italian ice cream and it's even better because there are some tropical fruits flavours which are really amazing and we definetely don't have in Italy. Very very friendly staff too, it was the best idea to stop here for ice cream!

Great little find just off the esplanade. The gelato bars are particularly delicious - I had a chocolate covered salted caramel with biscuit bits on it. Ridiculously good!

I tried the tiramisu and the Bailey's ice creams and both were delicious! Very recommendable, I'll come back the next time I'm in cairns.

Lovely ice cream made on-premises - best in Cairns and we won't go anywhere else now. We take interstate visitors there and all agree and want to go back, including two people who chose it as their last stop before the airport to say goodbye to Cairns

What a great place-fantastic choices,very generous serves,very reasonably priced and as for the taste-out of this world. It rates as one of the best in Australia-we had a Gelati every day whilst in Cairns(1 week). Highly recommend. The owner is a delightful young and clever young man from Prague,and we wish him every success in his growing business.

Dear Bruce, We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for the wonderful review, and think so highly of our product. We simply would like to mention that our product and store are Italian, managed by a young man from Prague. We simply wanted to mention this, to avoid any confusion with our local customers. Once again thank... More

If you have an ice cream in cairns you must try Gelocchio. Friendly service, fabulous choice, generous portions and competitively priced. My favourite - the cherry, but then again .....
