This place is simple - it has gelato and sorbetto - the flavors a strong and the product is wonderfully smooth. A great place to pick up dessert no matter where you are headed.

Love the name and the quality of the Gelato. My favorite are the fruity ones, mango, peach and strawberries are delicious!

Went with my daughter and grandkids...the best ice cream ever...though I opted for the chocolate there are other, perhaps more interesting choices to be made but I am a chocolate lover...their flavours change often...we have visited many times...a must do!

This is the best place on 45th St. to grab ice cream or sorbet. I've visited many times and tried quite a few flavors and each time was very happy with my choice. The sorbets are light and refreshing with strong fruit flavor and a well balanced sweetness. The ice cream is always rich and creamy, very satisfying!

I found the name quirky. Walked by this ice cream joint while hunting down a Starbucks - the upside down goat and the name etched through it caught my attention and I had to stop by and see what they sold. Nice server - she gave me a taste of all the flavors so I could choose. My kids loved... More

The assortment of gelato is very good. The gelato is wonderful. Reminds me of the gelato in Naples, Italy

This was a refreshing treat from the heat. They have a wide variety of flavors and the service was very good. My 5 year old niece loves to go there. My favorite was their pistastio flavor. Definitely will come again.

Fainting Goat has lots of great flavor options. The gelato is so smooth. The one scoop cup or cone is the perfect way to spend a summer evening.

Having found nothing appealing after dinner at a nearby seafood restaurant, we decided to leave Lake Union and head up to Wallingford. The Fainting Goat is a small gelato shop and our purchases really hit the spot. Even though only one person was on duty behind the counter, she was friendly and patient despite the line of customers. We bought... More
