The best gelato have been going every week!!

All favors crafted perfectly. They do run out of some favors get there early. Hours vary. Parking is impossible they should have runners out to your car like car hops for a minimum take away.

Pumpkin was excellent and a medium serving is very large! Very nice seats outside to watch everyone on a beautiful fall day.

Cute place. About 12 flavored to choose from. The fruit ones were very flavorful. I didn't think the chocolate ones were very rich. That said the cake batter was the best I've ever had!

Loved the fun of selecting which three scoops to fill a medium cup. The delightful young woman at the counter was eager to help us and offered small taste samples until we picked our favorites. The blueberry plum lavender was amazing and well matched with the Fuji fruit and chocolate raspberry. But my favorite was the combination of chocolate Valencia... More

My family and I enjoyed a great cold treat. The service was excellent and the gelato even better. The staff was very friendly and offered us samples of any flavor. Great product and great service. Worth the walk down lower Thames

We researched Cold Fusion Gelato online before giving it a try, and it was excellent! They had a wide variety of flavors, and everything looked amazing! I would definitely recommend giving this a try to anyone that's in Newport. Excellent Gelato!

They let you taste the flavored before you buy and they all tasted delicious. Going for a stroll with gelato was like being in Italy!

Yes, Ben and Jerry's is right up the street and we did both over our stay but Cold Fusion had a much better selection and was much more generous with portion size (and price). Worth the stop on a hot day.

The real deal gelato with creative, natural tasting flavors. Since all single scoops cost $4 these days, this was a good value since quality was great.

gelato was good, but did not have the flavor punch that I am used to with gelato. prices were moderate $5 for a medium which was almost a large. nothing special to write home about, but was a good choice on a hot day.
