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...More
