This gelato was on par with what we ate in Italy. Great selection of gelato and very good taste. Prices seemed less than what we paid for gelato at other places in Canada.

We went as part of a food tour, and liked it so much wecame back for more. Plenty of varieties made on the premises. Not sure of your flavour? They will give you a sample.

If you crave from an Ice cream after your dinner, then do not miss it at Piccolo Grange; a huge variety of flavors... Your only problem will be which to choose!

You can have Sorbet or Ice Cream or both if you want but you'll have to come back a dozen times before you come close to sampling the entire inventory. I was impressed with the eagerness of the staff to be helpful.

Hot day and wanted a break. No seats inside as some selfish locals with no food or drink were sat talking; they refused to move for any visitors. No mint choc chip so partner had another mint variety. It was not nice .... tasted of mouthwash! My coffee and maple was good. Had a nicer ice cream later in the... More

The location is a nice escape but only steps away from the busy byward market area. Excellent quality and the portions are very generous!

Very Yummy! And a nice atmosphere. I ordered some mango flavor and some chocolate caramel. So very good! My girlfriend has pistachio and strawberry, both were excellent. Highly recommended.

This gelato shop has been here as long as I can remember (at least 15 years). And I think it's staying power relates to the quality: the gelato, sorbets and sherbets are really good. They have an array of flavors, including more inventive ones (like ginger chocolate or passion fruit). It's not inexpensive, but the smallest size is still a... More

This is the perfect place to take that special someone after dinner for a tasty sweet treat. They have so many flavours the tough part will be choosing which one to have. They're a couple of minutes walk away from the center of the market but super convenient no matter where you're coming from. Well worth a visit!

This has been our favorite Gelaterie for many years. Our waistlines can’t take it too often but it is always a treat when we do indulge ourselves. Still wonderful. Huge scoops , great value, fabulous to-die-for flavours. And lots to choose from. All true Italian home made. Even sorbets and sherbets for those watching the calories and/or who can’t tolerate...
