We had the ultimate pleasure of being invited to a Gelato tasting at Gelato Messina in Downtown Summerlin. The atmosphere was relaxing, inviting, kid friendly, clean, and had amazing decor. We were greeted by the Operations Manager Victoria who is from Australia. She was absolutely amazing! We felt so welcome!
Gelato Messina originated in Australia in 2002. All of their ingredients are raw and every bit of Gelato is freshly made behind a glass window where you can watch the magic happen! Each Gelato Messina has a custom painted wall mural by Australian Artist, who now lives in New York, Jeremyville. Each mural is customized to it's location and the Las Vegas mural is complete with a version of Elvis.
Our kids were intrigued and enjoyed looking around and sitting on the comfortable round leather couches. The Gelato was phenomenal, nothing I've ever had even comes close to what we tasted! My favorites were the Dulce De Leche, Apple Pie, Coconut & Lychee, and Pistachio to name a few! Our kids very much enjoyed the Chocolate Fondant and the Chocolate Chip.
Not only do they specialize in Gelato they also make cake! We know where we are going the next time we need a cake for anything! The prices are extremely reasonable considering that they only use the freshest ingredients! Each week there are new specials! One special currently showcased is called Knights in Nepal, 100% of the proceeds benefit those in Nepal affected by the recent earthquake. Another current special is the Cinco De Mayo special which was amazing!!
We can't wait to go back and eat more Gelato!
We LOVE Downtown Summerlin!
