Neighborhood: Downtown Manhattan (Downtown)
Description: MO Gelato is handmade daily with love, in New York City. The recipes and the expertise that go into making our gelato come from Bologna, Italy. We use locally sourced fruits, farm fresh hormone-free milk and natural ingredients to ensure a low-fat, healthy and delicious product. We prepare different flavors of gelato in small batches, just enough for a day’s consumption. As a result, our gelato is good for you and for the environment. It is full in flavor with a silky texture, but light in fat to keep you happy.

I do not like any ice cream with bright colors: blue, orange or those multi color like rainbow ice cream...

I like real fruit ice creams and are very few places where you can find homemade real ice cream.

After walking around Little Italy for a while and in our way back to uptown, we found by chance MO Il Gelato. We tried strawberry, mango, lemon and dark chocolate.

Strawberry: it was not any of those pinky strawberry ice creams you could find around in many Italian restaurants. It was excellent.

Mango: real mangos, real flavor.

Lemon: our nephews mentioned it tastes to real lemon. That’s enough.

Dark chocolate: I get frustrated when you order a dark chocolate ice cream and when in your hands looks like chocolate milk instead of what you thought it was when in their freezer. This chocolate was absolutely dark, bitter and the best I have tried in a while.

I ate ice cream all year round even in the real cold winters in our city, although unfortunately we do not hace any ice cream place like MO.

It’s absolutely recommendable.

After walking around the city for a few hours my father and I stopped here for a Gelato and Sherbet. The line moved fairly quickly and the food was quite tasty. There was limited seating in the store itself but the food is pretty portable so it didnt bother us. Just something to consider if you want to eat it there.

Stopped for ice cream before dinner and it was perfect to give the kids some energy to walk to Soho. Strawberry sorbet was fantastic and chocolate was good too.
Perfect consistency worth trying and the calories
Very nice staff
