Simply the best!! The next day I went to get another one and they were out of it. Best seller!! Across the street from Francis Malbone House Inn where we stayed.

A small store/storefront that was calling my name when I was in Newport last week. While the staff seemed a bit apathetic, the gelato was very good. Many flavours. I had peach (which was out of this world) and cake batter (I loved it because it was 'egg-y' and actually tasted cake-y). Considerably inexpensive as well. Yum!

It was very good, but out of my favorite flavor. Which surprised me since they had so many flavors. But then again it was very busy the days we were there.

We a recently spent a long weekend in Newport and ate this everyday. The staff, especially the man who manages the place, are so nice and they will let you sample everything before making a selection. My husband and I had the sorbet one night and that was also delicious! The flavors seemed to vary a little which was great... More

My daughter recommended Cold Fusion, remember her month long stay in Italy and said we had to try it. So we headed to Cold Fusion and they were so patient with us as we sampled so many flavors. A definite must when walking the strip. Enjoy!

I haven't had much experience with gelato, so I was drawn to Cold Fusion to try something new on our vacation. It was hard to pick just one, but I had the chocolate raspberry and found it delicious! I thought it was a bit pricey for the amount we got (the cup was rather small and the spoon was itty-bitty,... More

We last visited 4 years ago, and when we decided to go out for a gelato we were drawn right back to cold fusion. the flavor and texture is great and enjoyed by both the kids and the parents.

On a block with at least 4 frozen dessert shops, this is the one we chose. I liked how they separated the nut-free fruit flavours from the nutty, dairy ones. #1 Son liked the strawberry lemonade, the mango and the passion fruit while I went with the salted caramel chunk and the espresso. My choices were not too sweet and... More

The gelato? Terrific. Interesting and intense flavors. Pricey, but what you'd expect for a treat in Newport. The server (who I presume was the owner)? Enthusiastic. Generous with samples, a great salesman, generous with portions. So far, so good, right? The sour part? While he was swiping my credit card I tossed some cash in the tip jar. Imagine my... More
