Love coming here after a casual, relaxing walk on the High Line. I usually order Bacio and Nocciola though the last time I was there they didn't have Bacio. It is very good gelato and very comparable to gelato in Italy. I am Italian and have even made my own coffee gelato. As you can see from my avatar, I'm... More

Tucked away in the back of Chelsea market is the best gelato stand I have ever had in my life. Butterscotch was my choice and without a doubt it was made right and simply delicious. Staff was very friendly and nice.

Went with my wife and brother-in-law, I had a nutella gelato, my wife had mocha, and my brother-in-law vanilla and peach. Service was ok, the gelato very good. They had some difficulty keeping the "bar" area free of trash. Overall, this is a good place for dessert!.

We stumbled upon the one on the High Line and had low expectations from the stall. Each got 2-3 different flavours and every single one was amazing. The pistachio one particularly stood out and I have lived in Italy for years!

This is starting to become one of my favorite gelato places in New York. Like another reviewer said, you can't compare to Gelato in Italy, but it's some of the best in town. The flavors are fresh and the gelato is not too sweet.

There's a good selection of flavors and it's pretty good for not being in Italy. But for NYC it should be better. Even if you don't understand the labels it's not hard to figure out because they have that item displayed in the gelato. For example: strawberry has an actual strawberry in it, peanut butter has actual peanuts in it,... More

Wonderful gelato. I went to the location in the Chelsea Market. They had a great selection of flavors (I think my only somewhat complaint was that all the flavors were in French and I couldn't really understand most of them. Very cute for ambiance but not overly practical since they weren't translated). They are cash only so be prepared for... More
