Very nice and friendly place. Ice cream is very good. Outdoor area with gazebo, some nice benches, and other seating where you can relax and enjoy the ice cream

Wentworth often has long lines, but they are staffed with enough people that the line moves right along. The ice cream is very good and the ice cream cakes are even better.

Recent stop for ice cream was just as I remembered. Friendly staff, plenty of choices and several places outside to sit and enjoy a few scoops. Once lived across the street many years ago and could not get enough of this stuff. Will return for sure...Thank you!

LOVE their ice cream. The flavors are unique and delicious. I've had a lot of ice cream, from the west coast to NYC but this place is still one of my favorites!

Quaint little place that's been around a very long time....good portion sizes but definitely on the pricey side. Bummer that they are closed on Sundays as well.

Our teenage granddaughter insisted we come here for terrific ice cream--and indeed it was. It was creamy and delicious and had a nice choice of flavors. Will definitely come again if we are in this area.

Great Ice Cream, high cost, not open on Sundays, should recruit a few reliable atheists to keep the place open on Sundays. Give some Sunday profit to GOD. Ice cream is heavenly, melts in hell.

Wentworth's is close to Sleeping Giant which is nice because when your done hiking or being hot from the sun you can go in and get whatever you want and then sit outside on the bench with a friend. It's a simple friendly place right off of route 5 very close to Quinnipiac.
