Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The place has a reasonable selection of choices. The lemon lime one was suggested as being refreshing and indeed it was.

I've been here for some delicious, more-expensive-but-worth-it-for-the-price gelato. The choice is great and always consistent quality.

We walked by this little shop a dozen times, and my hubby insisted on getting a raspberry gelato as his treat as we were leaving Napier. Hard to believe that it is diary-free. It was a creamy, not too sweet, and a delicious sendoff.

Finally got to visit the highly rated ice cream parlour after reading their great reviews, as this store has always been closed. However, our family experience was not as fantastic as we expected. As we existed the very small store, the scoop of ice cream...fell off the cone. This was brought to the attention of the owner. Unfortunately she did not see it necessary to replace the ice cream. Due to the poor customer care, we did not get to try that particular flavour. We certainly will not recommend Gelato in Napier!More

This place had a fantastic lemon and lime sorbet. Not too sweet. Not a huge selection but some very tasty ice creams. I personally preferred this place.

I had salted caramel in a cone and my husband had hokey pokey and cookie & cream in a cone. Creamy and delicious choices!

We tried two different gelatos and both were delicious, we've had plenty of gelato of the years in Italy and this gelato was as good as it gets. It was a shame we found it on our last day in Napier - or perhaps a...good thing.More

Popped in here yesterday. Basic operation with a dozen or so flavours. Prices were reasonable but they didn't accept credit cards which is inconvenient in an ever increasing cashless society. We had a couple of fruit flavours which were nice but the guy scooping didn't...speak English as his first language so didn't quite understand our order (as such we ended up only getting single cones rather than doubles, and that lost them money). Tasty gelato/icecream though so in the end that's all that really matters.More

Wonderful homemade gelato ice cream. So velvety and tasty. We had amazing hokey pokey, cookies and cream and hubby said the espresso gelato was the best he has ever tasted. Staff were patient and pleasant.

I must have been served by a different worker compared to the other reviewers as I found the guy who served me to be patient and personable. He allowed my two children a few tastes of different ice creams before they made their choice. There...are a good variety of flavours and a reasonable price in comparison to other ice cream places on Marine Parade. Yes, it's not going to be as cheap as Tip Top at the dairy - but it's gelato! They don't take foreign cards, so bring cash if you are a tourist.More

$4.50 for one scoop in a waffle cone or you can get tubs. Plenty of options. Tasty and fair size. Melts fast in the heat though, lick fast!

Wandered around Marine Parade before stopping here for gelato. The people at the counter were average. The ice cream was excellent!!! They have many awards for their great ice cream. It's a great selection and all of the ice creams have interesting tastes. My favourite...is the tiramisu and the milk chocolate. One of the best ice cream places here!!!More

So I think the person who serves ice cream here eats lemon for breakfast, no smile just pure business ! However, he servers one of the best ice cream I ever had anywhere on the planet. REALLY nice ice cream, I wish I knew about...this place sooner ;-)More

It was my birthday, I was walking down Marine Parade, feeling a little homesick and wanted to treat myself with something sweet.. STOPPING AT GELATO2U WAS THE BEST THING I COULD DO! I was so impressed by the taste and quality of their gelato that...I had to try all the flavours and eventually I ended up having them all! Still I couldn't choose my favourite, ALL OF THEM ARE SO GOOD. I had to go back there before leaving Napier to congratulate the gelato chef and to make my mind on which is my favourite! I finally decided for the dark chocolate one, it was like having a frozen hot chocolate, so tasty! BEST TREAT YOU CAN HAVE! THE BEST PRESENT YOU CAN GIVE TO YOURSELF! All the ingredients are natural and completely fresh! MUST TRY ALL THE FLAVOURS! BRAVI!More
