Aptly located in cultural hub, Fitzroy, Gelato Messina opened its doors on November 14, 2013. This Fitzoy flagship gelateria is not only the first to cross the Victorian border, but is also the biggest store in the Messina family. Everyone involved in Gelato Messina had a say in the design of the store and highlights include a specially designed curved cabinet, and a window to witness the art of gelato creations as they make their way out of the churner.
Gelato Messina's signature counter is always filled to the brim with 40 unique flavours and churns fresh gelato daily.
The Fitzroy store releases a new flavour every day from Tuesday to Saturday. Each gelato at Gelato Messina is made using the most pure natural ingredients. Each element of the gelato is made from scratch and churned fresh on-site.
We loved the gelato. The quality ingredients and interesting flavours mean the results speak for themselves - texturely perfect gelato with beautiful flavour combinations. The passion for artistic expression using quality ingredients can be tasted in their gelato. Each flavour is made with dedication and artisanship.
In Sydney, Gelato Messina could be mistaken for a nightclub with lines wrapping around the venue on most weekends, with people of all ages waiting to try the next gelato concoction. It appears, Melbourne is moving in the same direction. A mere two weeks in and the store already has queues that could rival those of their Sydney counterparts.
