Not only Messina has opened a shop 15 min away from where I live, but our new Buddhist centre is very, very close to Ciccone and Sons. So close, you don’t get to burn any calories walking back and forth.
I’ve only been once but I already know this is the best gelato I’ve had so far. I tried two of the flavours that were recommended by a friend: buttermilk + passionfruit and black sesame ($7 for the 2 scoops). Yes, maybe not the greatest combination but I loved both flavours. It’s good to keep in mind that the scoops are massive.
Alvaro tried the strawberry & white chocolate popsicle ($6), which was nice but not something I would order. Instead, I’m keen to try a coffee and hazelnut combo next time.
You can get your gelato fix via Uber Eats. I took advantage of their free delivery offer to order a small tub ($14) of cinnamon gelato for Alvaro, which didn’t last long.
