Lavezzi Gelaleria

Description

Amalio Lavezzi began making gelato in 1870. His passion, his recipes and the joy he created has continued for over 100 years.

The Lavezzi passion for flavour is evident in every aspect of the process from the meticulous roasting of coffee beans, right through to the selection of hazelnuts, to the baking of our own cannoli and cakes.

Finally some proper Italian ice cream!! It's difficult to find in Australia. Here it's delicious and service is very friendly. They also have delicious desserts like cannoli and they serve good coffee.

Extremely thick and creamy pistachio ice cream!!!!! Say goodbye to Pidapipo and head over to Lavezzi!!! This is so much better!!! Free chocolate on tap topping!! Both milk and white chocolate are available upon request. You can also ask for chocolate coating inside the cone!! YUMMY!

Good luck picking the flavors in this place! They all sound delicious and the more you try the more difficult it gets! Once you settle on something sit comfortably and enjoy the bliss of perfect gelato

Seriously I just got back from trying Lavezzi's icecream and I am so happy. Fantastic job guys. Pistachio 10/10, Citrus Pear 10/10 and the peanut butter nutella 10/10. Actually even the person who served me was 10/10.Overall experience was flawless!

Beautiful, amazing, groundbreaking. Best ice-cream in Carlton plus generous testers in store. Never a queue (I don't know why?) which means staff are very attentive and fast service!

My favourite place with the best ice cream I've ever had. So many different amazing flavours made fresh every single day. Peanut butter & Nutella and Pistachio are my all time favourites. The consistency and texture are just phenomenal. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Salted camarel contained quality taste and was not too sweet that I found quite rare in many places. Same as chocolate which I am usually not a fan of, but Lavezzi choco flavour was reaaaally good! And the staff was super friendly!! Definitely would recommend

So few places on Lygon street have BRILLIANT customer service; this is one! Firstly the salted licorice is amazing!!! The staff are so kind and the decor is especially nice. The whole place is sparkling clean, I go even on rainy days and have a affugato (shot of coffee on vanilla gelati). This place takes it's product seriously, I highly recommend (and I'm hard to please)

Love this authentic Italian gelataria! Tastes exactly like the gelato in Italy. Everything is very fresh and full of flavour. The pistachio is always top of the list. Service is always fantastic and always greeted with a smile.

The hot chocolate (dark) was the best I've ever had, although it's only $3.8. Now I want to try the gelato too

I would have thought that vegan and GF ice creams could taste so good, but they do. The almond milk and chocolate are nectar of the Gods. Fantastic.
Friendly service. Excellent choice of flavours including several unique offerings. Well worth a visit.

I used to come here every weekend with my family, but its getting worse and worse in the past couple of months. For the same money, they give you less and less and less, and the staff seems annoyed when you ask to try the flavors.

A new player on the Lygon St Gelateria wars... But definitely becoming a favourite. From the impeccable service, generous servings and gorgeous staff who are always smiling. Give the little guys a go! You won't regret it

I'm a self confessed ice cream addict and had only tried this place 2 weeks ago. My husband thinks I need rehab after coming here during lunch 3 times in one week. We took my sister in law and her kids here today and they absolutely loved the strawberry and basil. My nephew just had to ask for one more spoonful before we left. We want to say thank you especially to the gentlemen and of course the rest of the team for their warm hospitality. I have definitely spread the word to my lactose intolerant friends about the amazing sorbet gelato!

You need to try their icecreams before word gets out and long queues starts! Pistachio ice cream best ever tasted. Serving staff are passionate about their product and generous with tasting samples. Will be back for more!

The best sorbet I have tried in Melbourne I would say! Love how they combine herbs with fruits (eg. strawberry with basil) to create such pleasant and refreshing taste for sorbets. Their dairy gelato choices are fabulous as well!
