“Columbus Circle/Central Park Gelato, NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

Chocolate Extranoir gelato. Or in my case CE w/ Espresso gelato. They have WONDERFUL gelato. Located on Broadway, just off the SE corner of Columbus Circle and the SW corner of Central Park. If it is too cold for gelato, some people apparently believe that is possible, order one of their amazing hot chocolates. For us caffeine freaks, they'll throw in a double shot of espresso. Talk about your five hour energy…….

“BEST GELATO AND HOT CHOCOLATE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This gelato shop was amazing! The hot chocolate is made by scooping chocolate sauce/melted chocolate into a cup and then whipped up. And don't forget the whipped cream! Perfect for the chilly weather. The gelato too was so creamy and delicious! I love that they use all natural ingredients. No artificial dyes or anything. We will definitely make sure to always stop here when we are in NYC!

“The best of Italian Gelato in NYC beating heart.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Let's start saying there's no gelato better than this in the City. Then i'd mention the fact that rarely ( never perhaps ), even when in italy as a matter of fact, i've eaten a better one. Anyway there's no place in NY you can compare it with, and you probably can't state you've ever had gelato if you haven't tried this yet. The location is perfect, pretty nice chance to take a walk in Central Park as well as Broadway while consuming the ice-cream. This place is located just in the beating heart of the city, a few minutes walk from times square, just a crossroad far from central park and one block from time warner center.
Any problem? Maybe the only issue is the usual long line you'd have to front most of the time, sometimes it could get really stressful ( lines could last until 20 minutes sometime ), but you know, when gelato is so amazing there's a lot of people sticking around. The gelato is worth the waiting.
Any advice i'd like to give? Yep, and real important: don't miss "Crema di Grom" flavor, the most incredible, delicious flavor i've ever had! Try it and figure it out for yourself.
