Bella Gelateria: Gelato in Yaletown

Diana Chan May 28, 2015 Dessert, Italian, Kid Friendly, Three Beakers, Yaletown


Bella Gelateria has opened their second location right in Yaletown by Marinaside. Bella Gelateria is best known for the award-winning gelato. Maestro James makes sure all the gelato is made to the finest quality.


They have the usual gelato, plus they have a whole food menu and dining area. A huge difference from their first location in Coal Harbour.


I came here just for some quick gelato, so we paid first, then we could go up the counter area to start tasting a few flavours that intrigued us.


On a quiet weekday, the staff are very attentive and have patience to go over some suggested flavours. Sometimes its hard deciding what you want. On a busy day, the experience will be quite different for sure.


Buko Pandan is a Filipino dessert that has the flavour combination of young coconut, green gulaman, nata de coco, sweet cream and pandan. It was a flavour that really intrigued me, so I usually end up getting it.


Stracciatella is M’s favourite. It’s a milk based gelato with shreds of chocolate bits. Very clean taste and pretty addicting if you want something simple. M had to have it with chocolate drizzle and the wafer cookie.


Overall, it’s a great treat for the hot Summer. Plus, since its right by the marina, you can’t help but eat this as you walk along the seawall.

    Bella makes gelato “their own way” for the masses. Besides the gelato being outrageously overpriced, their gelato doesn’t spend much time in the freezer before being served resulting in a gelato that turns quickly into a milkshake if not eaten quickly.

    While traditional gelato is not as cold as ice cream, Bella goes too far in serving very very soft gelato, which is far different than what one might see in professional competitions.

    Having had the real thing many times in Italy, my recommendation is to save your money and get your gelato at the many other less expensive and arguably better gelateries around town.
