Messina Gelateria Has Opened On Pottinger For Amazing Gelato In Hong Kong

Black Sheep's Newest Offering On Pottinger Street

Messina Gelateria Hong Kong

Known to be the finest gelato in the world, Australian brand Messina opens their first outlet in Hong Kong! Partnering with Black Sheep Restaurants, this is one collab we couldn’t be more excited about.

Established in 2002 in Sydney, Messina is an institution for gelato-lovers. With an unwavering dedication to freshness, they ensure that all ingredients are made from scratch, raising their own dairy cows and establishing things like hazelnut and strawberry farms. Pre-made bases or add-ins are a big no-no at Messina, with everything from the gelato base to the cookies, brownies, and coulis being made in-house. This is what makes Messina the best in the world, and is what really attracted Black Sheep to the partnership.


The Location: A 2,000sq ft store located on trendy Pottinger Street, right in the heart of Central.

The Taste:  Everything is made from scratch!  Over 25 flavors – hoorah!

Price: Gelato is priced at HK$60 for one, HK$70 for a double and HK$80 for a triple scoop

Flavors:  All the classics + Hong Kong flavours too – Egg tart, Hong Kong Milk Tea, Jack of All Fruits.


Why Little Steps Loves It:​

Hong Kong is desert-obsessed, from mango pudding and sesame mochi to the huge array of soups and Japanese shaved ice. We welcome any new type of desert there is!

Who It's Perfect For:

Kids and families or couples on date night out for an afternoon treat or post-dinner scoop to close out the night.

What Else:​

With ice cream-fave Emack & Bolio closing in Hong Kong this September, Messina will slide right in and fill its shoes on Pottinger Street!

Where To Find It:​

Additional Info:​

Open Tuesday to Thursday 3pm-10pm; Friday to Sunday 3pm-11pm
