The first Casa Del Gelato store opened it's doors in 2007 in Ponsonby, fuelled with a passion to make authentic artisan gelato without any short cuts.
Today they have many stores around Auckland making delicious gelato that's made with only the freshest ingredients - Casa Del Gelato Birkenhead being one of these stores.
Their gelato is low in fat and comes in a wide range of mouth watering flavours that include pistachio, blood orange, lemon, French chocolate and more.

Gotta love an icecream with chunks, or a sorbet that melts in the mouth and tastes just like the flavour it's promised to be. Casa Del Gelato isn't cheap, but you'd spent $4 - $5 on a takeaway coffee, right? Well why not swap your coffee for an icecream and a wander round Birkenhead Wharf this summer. Probably more of an adult treat for those who appreciate the quality of the icecream rather than feeding a bunch of kids. Recommend you stop here on your way for a walk, to the ferry or just simply... because!
This place is divine! Now we're in winter, it is probably selling more hot coffee and cakes than icy gelatos, but come summertime there will be more queues out the door once again. I went here with my husband on its opening night and had a delicious ice cream glass of 3 flavours in a tall sundae glass. Heavenly.
