I found my experience at Giapo a bit over complicated. I took my small kids but it was difficult to get something more simple. I can really appreciate the art of it all but personally it was all a bit much for us.
I love this place. A bit on the pricier side for gelato, but they are so creative with their ice creams it's worth the price. They also taste really good and the staff are extremely friendly. Wish they had stayed on queen st. Would definitely recommend a try.Got the Samoan caramel coconut ice cream with cookie crumbs all over it and it was amazing, tasted even better than normal dairy ice cream.
Ambience is nice but always crowded though due to their popularity. Service is excellent, we were served by a lady who was very friendly and energetic, all pleasant. She let us sample so many despite the line building up but she was onto it, she served customers while we tasted.
Not cheap, but a tonne of different flavours to chose from - more than your standard ice cream and gelato place. Ask for a taste tester with new flavours. Theres nothing worse than paying full price for a gelato and finding out that you wasted your money because you dont like it.
My favourite ice cream and gelato shop in Auckland. Awesome range and flavours, so many options. Not cheap - but you do get what you pay for, and you'll be hard pushed to find a better ice cream experience anywhere in Auckland. Ice creams are made fresh on site daily, and there are always new flavours to try. And very helpful staff.
What an experience. Giapo is like no other ice cream parlour I have ever been to. The staff are hands on in explaining the menu and helping you make your choice. Regular samples are given for you to try and your ice cream is made to order by a chef. Told them it was my birthday and it came out with a candle. Fantastic service and incredible ice cream to match!
Finally went here after avoiding it for years due to the sheer volume of people always in there. Since they moved we thought we would give it a go. It is amazing! The service was fantastic and the ice cream was to die for. So many options I'll have to go back several more times :)
Giapo is amazing. Service is always great. Normally we go for the chocolate one but tried the hazelnut one this time. Such an awesome treat. Always super busy so be prepared for a little wait but so worth it.
Ice cream and gelato that truly has to be seen and ordered to be believed. They have the most divine flavor combinations, and the way they present their creations is nothing short of stunning - there were gold-coated hazelnuts on my last one!
