The gelato and service were very good. Very friendly guy behind the counter! Wish they would bring back the salted caramel gelato.

We needed a little after dinner snack. We stopped in and grabbed two cups of sorbet. They were very tasty. There's no place to sit down inside or out, so we sat on the steps of the church across the street. Cold Fusion is a popular dessert spot - be prepared to stand in line.

We were walking down Thames Street on a very hot day looking for ice cream and we stumbled upon this place. They have a ton of flavors that are all natural I got the lime jalapeño gelato which sounds awful but was outstanding. The flavors worked really well together. My sons got fiji dream, s'mores and chocolate. They also let... More

I have tasted gelato/ice cream all over the world. And this gelato is the best by far. We loved it so much we went all three days in Newport. Creamy eclectic flavors with such an abundance of richness. The staff are a bunch of great kids with excellent people skills. And the decor is happy and bright. We just loved... More

Large variety of flavors. Some of "mixed" flavors are off the wall & really don't go together. But the good flavors are very good. Very good service. Great location.

I went here twice during a week's visit to Newport and enjoyed the gelato each time! I sampled several flavors, so I don't remember which I ended up buying! I tend to buy from the chocolate line of flavors. The workers are friendly young folks who seem to enjoy what they do. I've been to Italy twice and have eaten... More

This place is just plain delicious. We had the mint chip and it was the kind of mint that keeps your mouth cool and fresh long after you've tossed the bowl and spoon. They offer traditional gelato flavors as well as some interesting options. It was so good, can't wait to go back.

Located next to the Armory Antique Mall, this gelato shop is a "must-stop" on Thames Street in downtown Newport. Giada was here, and so was I, therefore you know this gelato is the real deal. I had a triple with Chocolate Sorbet, Madagascar Vanilla, and a flavor simply called "Chocolate Vanilla". Try the Cinnamon Basil Marscapone; you know that's going... More
