Gelato Messina

At the new Downtown Summerlin shopping plaza, fantastic shops and restaurants are opening up including a new gelato eatery named Gelato Messina.  What stands out about this gelato shop is that this is their first US location (they are based in Australia) and they make their gelato from scratch using only the finest ingredients.  I guarantee that if you stop by and sample their gelato, your eyes will POP in amazement like mines did!


Gelato Messina adorns their interior with bright colors and loud artwork, reflective of their passion for making vibrant and creative flavors of gelato


There's coffee, lattes, and more drinks to accompany the desserts

Cremino - Salted caramel gelato and crushed amaretti biscuits with soft meringue and Nutella

Inside the Cremino - all the flavors layered and folded throughout this decadent dessert :) Delish!

Peanut Butter & Jelly "Sandwich" - Brioche gelato, peanut butter mousse, and blackberry jelly

All the flavors are individually strong, but presents a nice combination when all three layers are eaten together

Head Chef Donato Toce explains to us how the gelato are made in-house and how they use their creations to make various types of gelato cakes

Black Forest Gelato Cake - Choc fondant gelato, kirsch semi freddo with amarena cherries, a thin layer of chocolate sponge, a chocolate crackle disc, dark chocolate spray finish with a cherry sorbet dome enclosed in a crisp dark chocolate top

The sorbet gelato section includes flavors like Salted Coconut & Mango Salsa, Blood Orange, and Passionfruit
All sorbet gelatos are dairy free and vegan friendly

Approximately 40 different gelato flavors are available every day at Gelato Messina


5 special gelato flavors, some of which are modeled after pop-culture icons, are made and changed up on a weekly basis

The Heisenberg - Blueberry yogurt gelato with crystallized violets (get it, Breaking Bad fans?!)

Dulce De Leche - An Argentinean caramel made by reducing milk until it becomes a sweet jam
