Melbourne and Sydney gets Messina Gelato. Meh! Get ready Perth, we have.. GUSTO GELATO! Equally smooth. Equally good. They opened just under a week ago and we’ve already been there twice. Located along Newcastle Street, just next door to Jus Burgers, the perfect place to stop by after a meal in Leederville. Owner Sean Lee actually graduated from Carpigiani Gelato University in Bologna and now runs Gusto Gelato in Perth.

They were giving out free scoops on their opening day and who can ever say no to free ice cream. We got there about 7.30pm and most of the flavours have already run out. They were still churning fresh gelato like crazy when arrived, testament of the quality and freshness of their gelato. We managed to try vanilla, mascapone with cocoa and zabaione. They were all AMAZING!

Plenty of seats inside and outside, but my favourite ones are along the back where you can sit and watch all the happenings in the kitchen. The freshest ingredients blended, roasted, mixed, whisked, gelato churned, watch it come out of the machine, placed in the blast chiller and straight into the freezer ready to be scooped. Was told that their strawberry gelato contains no less then 40% fresh strawberries! All natural ingredients and its as fresh as fresh can be. Dairy free options are available too.

We even got to sample the caramelised white chocolate when it first came out of the churning machine (I’m sure theres a proper name for this). HEAVENLY! Here’s Sean scooping the freshly churned caramelised white chocolate gelato.

So many more flavours I have yet to try and no doubt I’ll be going back there as soon as possible. Oh and they’re so so close to the newly opened Oxford Street Reserve Playground :) Gelato playdate anybody?
