So many flavors!

You are bound to find a flavor you'll like - I left with blueberry-lavender, pumpkin, and maple-habanero. The staff seem to be happy to work and enjoy letting you sample as many flavors as you want. The manager gave me his card and told me to give him a call if the store was closed (they have... read more

Stopped by on a Saturday night. There are a lot of flavors and you can try samples. I got the blackberry and my husband got the blueberry lavender. They were the best! The guy at the counter was friendly and seemed to like what he was doing.We tried to stop the next night but they were closed :(

This is a great place to stop and have a nice cup of some excellent gelato to break up all the walking you tend to do up and down Thames St. I had an excellent cup of "dark chocolate & sea salt" gelato and I have to say, I thought it was outstanding, and would definitely get it again. Nice... More

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!
