AUCKLAND| Ask a local where to find the best gelato in Auckland, and more often than not the answer will be Giapo. Since opening 9 years ago in Civic (they relocated to the current spot in 2017) the gelateria operated by Italian immigrants Annarosa Petrucci and Giapo Grazioli has been famous for its high quality, flavorsome, creamy delights, serving over 1,000 customers a day.

Graziolo fuses technology, art and science when creating his gelato, resulting in some unique flavours and creations. Think fries served with either salted caramel or coffee gelato, rock melon spaghetti on sheep yoghurt, or chocolate and blue cheese. Of course, it’s not all about experiementation and unexpected flavour combinations. The classics are all available here, and are as good as anything you’ll find in Italy – tirimisu, baccio, and salted caramel are all fantastic.

Keep an eye out for Giapo’s famous one-off creations. Past ones have been based on things like Auckland’s Sky Tower the Kiwi (bird), and the Colossal Squid at the Museum of Te Papa Tongarewa.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
