We often stop for gelato for dessert, and this place has several wonderful flavors. I also appreciate that they let me put two flavors in the smallest size cup (some places only let you choose 1 flavor in a small) and ask the flavors we tried were delicious. The peppermint and the Oreo creme were my favorites.

We stopped by on a hot day. We didn't encounter rude staff. In fact, both young men were quite friendly and patient with us as we tried a few flavors before we bought. The banana caramel was tasty. I agree with others that the flavor is not intense but it was good.

Awful customer service, watery coffee, dirty inside. As a local, I would not go back. Lucky for them the location is ideal. The man working was incredibly rude to us and then threw a hissy fit when he couldn't get the lid to fit on the cup, he angrily threw it on the counter then tried anoth and then when... More

We were disappointed with the gelato at Ecco. Between the two of us, we had three flavors, and all were bland and lacking intensity of flavor. They were very light and refreshing, which was great, but not much flavor.

Good gelato............. we're spoiled as a result of a month long trip to Italy where we had the BEST gelato but the friendly service at Ecco helped make this a good visit. Gelato is GOOD with multiple choices - we came just as they were closing so no all the flavors were available (popular place).

This is not an easy review to write. I do not like that almost everything in a place is bad. The floors were dirty, the service was rude and the drink was made not once but three times the wrong way, even after the server acknowledged it the first time. I just gave up and took the drink that was... More

Good place for gelato and coffee. Staff is friendly and fast. The Sunday we went seemed to be busy for them. We did find a place to sit and enjoy a cup of very good gelato.

Found this by walking around. A few blocks from the Plaza, but well worth the couple minute walk. The walk gives you a way to burn off the calories you will consume here. Nice selection of flavors and friendly staff. Seems to be more of a local's place than tourists.

Ecco features house-made gelato in a dozen or more flavors, made with high-quality ingredients and "no fake junk" (their phrase). Selections change daily. My wife and I often stop here in the afternoon for an afogato (a double shot of espresso over two scoops of gelato).
