This little family-owned gem has gelato by-the-scoop and packed in quantity. Some exotic flavors and many stand-bys. On the rare occasions they have grapefruit, grab it...refreshing, original, punchy. If they don't, they almost always have mango which is killer, too.

Creamy and delicious. I tried a couple of flavors before settling on the coconut which had tiny pieces of coconut and tasted just like eating a sweet coconut.

Great, local family-run place. Lots of good gelato flavors, and way better than Molly Moon's in my opinion.

This place is simple - it has gelato and sorbetto - the flavors a strong and the product is wonderfully smooth. A great place to pick up dessert no matter where you are headed.

Went with my daughter and grandkids...the best ice cream ever...though I opted for the chocolate there are other, perhaps more interesting choices to be made but I am a chocolate lover...their flavours change often...we have visited many times...a must do!

This is the best place on 45th St. to grab ice cream or sorbet. I've visited many times and tried quite a few flavors and each time was very happy with my choice. The sorbets are light and refreshing with strong fruit flavor and a well balanced sweetness. The ice cream is always rich and creamy, very satisfying!

I found the name quirky. Walked by this ice cream joint while hunting down a Starbucks - the upside down goat and the name etched through it caught my attention and I had to stop by and see what they sold. Nice server - she gave me a taste of all the flavors so I could choose. My kids loved... More

The assortment of gelato is very good. The gelato is wonderful. Reminds me of the gelato in Naples, Italy
