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

The location on the highline is perfect. Pick a delicious ice cream and go for a beautiful stroll on the highline in a sunny day and you got a perfect summer afternoon in the city. I tried the olive oil famous flavor, can't say I was crazy for it but The rest of the flavors drove me nuts. So yummy!

Even beats some of the gelato we had in Italy. Take your gelato up to the high line and enjoy it while walking above Manhattan. A must!!

I've had a lot of gelato in my day and the Bronze Roasted Pistachio gelato is by far the best I've ever had. I complemented it with a mint chocolate chip and this was a great treat. In the Chelsea Market

the chocolate sorbetto is among the best. I cannot even finish half a scoop and I think the price is less exorbitant than some gelato shops $4.50 for a small-two scoop Cash only at Chelsea Market
