I walked by this place once while wandering in Nolita and was thrilled with my experience. The gelato is simply delicious and they have interesting flavors like apricot and green apple. It is really more like an ice cream stand, though, so don't expect to sit down. Grab a cone and run.

Five members of the New York City Thrifty Gourmets Meetup group and I field-tested Ciao Bella on Tuesday, June 3rd at about 9:30 PM. Only one employee was present to serve us. She greeted us with a smile and was friendly, but appeared stressed while serving us. She promptly accomodated our requests to sample a variety of this outlet's frozen treats. I enjoyed an ample portion of the maple/ginger gelato, finding it rich and flavorful. While some of my fellow Meetup-ers thought that the cost of a small cup ($4+, plus tax) was unnecessarily expensive, I was willing to pay a premium price for a premium snack. I'd like to see Ciao Bella compete against Grom in a taste test.

This food here is out of this world. And the atmosphere is really a quality date scene or even a fun place to hang out with the guys.

I only come here for pistachio gelato b/c it's the closest to the best gelato offered in Florence, Italy... rich, smooth, full pistachio flavor. When in Florence, Italy, all I did was gelato-hopping.

I love the thick texture and my kids love the zany flavors. Service is always pleasant.

If you like strong coffee ice cream, this is the best in the US. Value isn't great though, you can get pints at Garden of Eden for less than the price of a small cone.

When we returned from Italy, the first thing my friend talked about was incessant Gelato eating spree in every city we were in. Having sampled a few people's shares of gelato I can say Ciao Bella has it right. The gelato is firm and dense just like it is in Northern ITaly (as opposed to the really soft kind you get south which I think isn't as good). As a chocolate fiend I prefer the Valrhona. Bliss.

Malted Milk Ball Gelato - have you ever in your life heard of anything so ridiculously wonderful? Plus, you can grab a scoop and window shop in Nolita (the scoops will only cost you $4, but who knows what the shopping will).

You gotta try the pistachio ice cream - heaven on earth, even for people not enamored with pistachios.

Root beer floats aren't that bad either.
