A pistachio-coloured gelateria from Coda and Tonka's Adam D'Sylva. In pozzetti beneath the colourful terrazzo countertop, there are rotating specials that might include tiramisu and Basque burnt cheesecake; flavours inspired by the chef's Italian-Indian heritage (sugared almond, and spicy chai); and few very welcome curveballs.
This place is insanely popular – anyone who's had to muscle their way past the snaking Lygon Street queues can attest to this – so anyone who's somehow not acquainted with Pidapipo may be tempted to write it off as touristy or overpriced. Don't. Pidapipo deserves every metre of the long lines it generates; the gelato here is unquestionably some of Melbourne's best.
Owner Emma Nicholas-Jennis grew up in a gelato store. So she's spent most of her life making – and scooping – gelato. So it should come as little surprise that the gelato here is some of the best in town. All of the flavours here are worthwhile, but if you see the burnt fig – go for it.
