Stopped in while strolling 5th Ave in the afternoon. The pistacchio and passion fruit gelato we had was really good. We sat and enjoyed the treat in their location and was a nice break from all the walking.

Loved the Gelato, I had chocolate and hazelnut. Service was kind of slow and unorganized but ultimately worth the wait....but still not sure why my two--scoop cup cost more than twice as much as a beer just about anywhere on the strip!More

Dear costumer, I am so sorry for your unfortunate experience. We are sorry and we will work harder on educating the workers, since your experience is NOT an authorized action. He should have divided the sandwich in two and give you another plate. The manager...More

4 times the cost of good ice cream back home. Very good quality but expensive 4 dollars for a single scoop. I think I paid less on fifth ave in NY for good ice cream.

The flavors were so amazing it was hard to choose just 2! We tried several and everything tasted delicious and fresh. Definitely US prices, though!
