We got medium size gelato which were huge. Two of us could have shared one. Very tasty and lots of favors to choose from. They have sorbet as well and outdoor seating.

Nice little shop in the heart of downtown Newport. Not easily accessible if your just taking a trip to get gelato as the parking situation is horrible. There are meters and pricy "pay to park" lots. Back to the shop though... excellent variety of flavors and great taste. On our visit they only had cups as the cones were sold... More

We visited the Newport location for the first time this past weekend. We had purchased their pint size Gelato from Whole Foods, and enjoyed it very much. But even though we live fairly close to Newport, and visit frequently, we had not previously been to their Thames Street store. We were blown away with the flavor choices and with the... More

A nice gelato/sorbet place on Thames Street. The sorbet is excellent. Each item tastes like fresh peaches, blood orange, etc. Done perfectly. The gelato leave something to be desired. While good, it was missing something. The chocolate almond was okay, the peanut butter average. Still better than most "ice cream" places, for gelato it was average. Go for the sorbet!

Best gelato I have ever had. Really great value. Truly tasted fresh, and was served in an equally fresh waffle cone.

All favors crafted perfectly. They do run out of some favors get there early. Hours vary. Parking is impossible they should have runners out to your car like car hops for a minimum take away.
