Wandered around Greenwich Village for a bit until stumbling upon this Gelato stop.

All the gelato I have ever eaten here has always been delicious, I've seriously never been disappointed any time I have visited Amorino's.

Staff is kind and will let you try various flavors until you have chosen JUST the right one. My personal favorite is the hazelnut or the pistachio, mixed together. It is the right amount of gelato for just the right price. 

It gets pretty crowded due to the size of the shop, especially on a hot summer New York night, however it is definitely worth the wait.
