If you’re the kind of person who likes a generous dose of awesome with your ice cream, then Giapo is the place for you. There’s no trace of rainbow sprinkles or magic shell at this Gore Street joint. Giapo, the gelato making whizz behind the store, is responsible for the ridiculously epic looking (and tasting) creations.
Dishing up some of the freshest gelato in Auckland, this ice cream comes garnished with homemade goodies— blow-torched marshmallow, caramelised apples and Afghan bikkies, to name a few. There’s usually a bit of a wait, but the lovely Giapo ladies will keep the rumbling tums at bay with hot chocolate shots and brownies.
