Often wish they were open on Sundays so we could go there more often when driving by that way, On the other hand , it's a family business and they need a day off, so we get that. I know they want to keep people moving, but make the outside seating a little more comfortable and well-lit after sunset without... More

I've been going to Wentworths for over thirty years. Their ice cream is excellent. The price is high but you get enough ice cream to justify it. My hubby's favorite is the coconut mounds and I always get a hot fudge sundae with homemade whip cream and great toppings. If you are in the town of Hamden you don't want... More

If you are looking for high quality ice cream and a nice setting in which to eat it Wentworths is a great place to go. They have a wide variety of traditional ice cream, low calorie and frozen yogurt. And there are also a wide variety of toppings. You can sit inside or outside to enjoy your treat.

Love the wide variety of choices! I like that all the ingredients are fresh or made from scratch. Regina is always discovering new combinations. Worth the drive to!

Very good ice cream. Need to go far to find something better. But then again, everyone's taste is different.

We had not been to Wentworth's in quite while, and when my daughter came for a visit from Danbury,we decided to give it a try. I had a teeny ( that's what they call it) sundae which was exactly the portion I wanted. The coconuts mounds ice cream was very good, but the fudge was very disappointing...thin and not tasty....

We like the Wentworth located on Witney Avenue in Hamden near Sleeping Giant State Park. Old time ice cream parlor charm, tables inside, front porch with benches and a Gazebo near the parking lot. They even have adult ice cream. Always a must stop when in the area.

Just to the west side of Sleeping Giant State Park is a house on Whitney Ave which houses a great place for ice cream. You can eat inside or out.

We love Wentworth's and we love that they have an extra tiny scoop so the little kids can have their own. The in house hot fudge is also delicious.
