Love love love – Such great ice cream - problem is that everyone knows this so there are HUGE lines and it's a bit chaotic.
But worth it. I go for the classics - pecan or chocolate and raspberry sorbet. Perfect treat after a stressful NYC day!
Ciao Bella Now Uses Fillers in their Ice Cream! – Diasppointed to see that many (all? - we had their chocolate and triple espresso) of their ice creams now use
- Guar Gum
- Locust Bean Gum
all at the same time. Yikes! We loved the ice cram they make, but now won't touch it. Had some lately and wondered why it tasted funny. Then we read the list of ingredients. Looks like the expansion of their business drove a once great brand to focus more on profits than on the quality that got them to the top.
Looking for gelato? Look no further! – I've read some of the other reviews, some think the prices are a bit steep. I say you get what you pay for. They use high quality ingredients and you can taste the difference. As far as favors, if you like a cookie and creme taste, I recommend the Crema de Grom. My favorite! It's a vanilla with chunks of biscotti and chocolate chips. But don't take my word, when you get there ask for samples.
You can't miss this place during the summer. There's usually a line out the door spilling into the sidewalk. Though it helps by the fact the counter is right at the door.
Yummy gelato and sorbet – This is a gem on UWS. Awesome thick creamy gelato - I love the pistachio. Their sorbets are excellent too - I had the apricot sorbet yesterday and it was perfect. I will definitely go there again and highly recommend it. I love that the gelato is so creamy.
great on a hot day – it's the uws and walking around to stop and get a tasty treat is a fun thing to do. they are open late-ish, so if you go and catch a movie, it's there. love all the flavors i have tried so far-and they are generous with samples and explanations. sure it's $5, but its a life saver in ny humidity.
MOST ENRICHING TASTE BUB EXTRAVAGANZA EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! – I've expeirenced an out of body feeling while indulging into this WONDERFUL gelato! Very seductive. I LOVE GROM!
best gelato? – I tried there new location in the village for what i read was the best gelato around, what a disappointment. What they are trying to push as gelato is just above average ice cream that i can get at any ice cream place around the city and 5 dollars for a small cup? Way over priced for what? real Gelato is supposed to be smooth and creamy this was neither. Maybe there working out the kinks. i'll try back in a few weeks to see if they really now what there doing.
High-end Italian gelatos and sorbets fulfill cravings and empty wallets on the Upper West Side. – In Short
The city has been experiencing an uptick of frozen treat options, and no spot has received as much buzz as this gelato chain in its U.S. debut. All walks of Upper West Siders--from tipsy post-dinner dates to soccer Moms looking for a mid-day sugar high--form long lines for the all-natural gelatos and sorbets. Seasonally changing flavors read like an Italian Greenmarket inventory: ricotta made from sheep's milk, zabaione made with Marsala wine, and pink grapefruit sorbet.
GROM, THE BEST – Though I haven't been to GROM in Manhattan, I was thrilled to read that there is one there. Even though I have never found it mentioned in a Florence guidebook, it is my favorite gelateria, better than Perche No and others which are usually recommended. I never miss a chance to go there when I am in Florence. I am sure that it is equally as good in Manhattan.
