We don’t think very highly of gelato in NY, after being spoiled by the great gelato in Europe. I don’t think I would have tried L’arte del Gelato 75 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10014 if I hadn’t seen a positive review by Yvo, The Feisty Foodie, which makes her this week’s Weekend Shout Out!

It’s still not quite as good as what you’d get in Italy but pretty close. We loved how natural the flavors were, and how sugar was kept in check. The banana and peanut are amazing! The blueberry has a great flavor but it’s a little stiff. We do feel like the portion is a bit chintzy for $4.75 each, but I’ll have to suck it up and continue paying these prices because I will be back. We wish they would use better (or bigger) cups too, ones where this stuff doesn’t melt all over your hands.


After they scoop your flavors, they add a dab of another flavor on top for you to try, which is such a smart idea. Lon got pear and I got passion fruit, and now I’ll want those flavors next time. Feisty Foodie, if I get fat this summer, it’s all your fault. =/

So visit L’arte del Gelato. They have 3 locations!
