It's a simple small shop with an array of exciting gelato flavors. Imagine a happy kid walking in to a candy store (in this case, ice cream store) and being greeted with a male staff whom was stern looking. No greetings and no smiles. As for the gelato - I was excited to try a few of the flavors but... More

If you are walking along the Marine Parade and want a refreshing cone of gelato, then cross the road (across from the information centre) and pick out your favorite flavor of gelato. Generous portions and reasonable prices. Not as good as what you might get in Italy, but better than a carton of ice cream from a freezer.

We walked in without knowing how good this ice cream would be. It was real fresh made in the same room the ice cream is sold. prices are good for the quality.

yummy gelato - especially the Mango and Peach, and the Espresso. It was a great way to finish a long day of walking around visiting the Museum and Aquarium. Lovely sitting in the sun to enjoy it too.

There's a lot of gelato places out there that dont seem to understand that gelato means quality ice cream. Gelato is not supposed to be over whipped, luke warm, weakly flavored cream. Gelato2U does not fall into this catagory, here's a gelato place that's taken pride in its gelato and even has some recent 2016 rewards on its walls to... More

The best gelato in Napier. I always stop here for a scoop when I'm walking down Marine Parade. Enjoy on the beach!

Every time we visit Napier we have to stop in at this shop to get one of their yummy ice creams. Our favourites are hokey pokey (the homemade taste) and salted caramel = YUM!! Highly recommend to all ice cream lovers

Even if you've been here before you have got to try the new gelato bars. They are vanilla gelato on a stick dipped in dark chocolate sprinkled with the most luscious chunks of fresh honeycomb. Such a good price for something that is handmade with such delicacy and care only $4 50 and much better than anything you can buy... More

I couldn't resist stepping inside after walking past and seeing their awards displayed in the window. I live near an amazing gelato place so thought I'd better try another award winner out... for science ;). I had the banana rocky road and the salted caramel and white chocolate. Both flavours were divine. I'm now left thinking that rocky road should... More
