Being of Italian decent and having travelled throughout Italy, I feel I am somewhat of a gelato snob. When searching for a good gelato in New York I thought I'd use my trip advisor to get me to a great gelateria in New York. I was in the area so I thought I would take a shot at Amorino on E 10th Street and what a choice I made! I could tell right from the start that it was going to be an excellent experience from the fact that the people serving me were straight from Italia. After some polite conversation in Italian with the server, she was from Vicenza in the Venice area, I decided on my favourite flavour of all to put Amorino's gelato to the test. The nocciola (hazelnut) gelato was pretty much the best that I had ever had and that includes anywhere in Italy. Such a rich flavour with absolutely perfect texture. They even designed my cone to look like a rose! I will definitely take the long walk from Midtown to enjoy it again and I think all who come to New York should do the same. Grande gelato...grandissimo!! Bravo!
