Just like the majority of folks who walk through the doors of Gelato Messina in Downtown Summerlin, I’m a fan of this Australian import. I love the variety of flavors, particularly the pecan pie gelato, apple pie gelato and poached figs in marsala. The gelato itself is great with the smooth and creamy texture one would expect, but the real stars of those flavors and others are the chunks of pie and other ingredients that are mixed in. The weekly specialty flavors give plenty of reasons to come back over and over. The smokiness of the “Jack Daniels and Smoke” make that flavor unique. “Vanilla Spice” was an excellent mixture of strawberry glazed doughnuts, raspberry puree and gelato. The sheer volume of flavors means that you’ll probably have a difficult time deciding what to order, but they allow an unlimited number of samples to narrow your choices. The biggest drawback is that there’s no official way to line up and order or sample, so during peak hours it can be a clusterfuck as people surround the display cases waiting to be served. As long as you can avoid the crowds, this is one of the best gelato spots in the valley.
