I've read the reviews and was very excited to have my dessert from Cones on my visit to NY last week. What a disappointment. I thought the ice cream was overly sweet and the flavors don't compare to some of the other gelato's or even ice creams I've had living in SF. My daughter and I threw our $8 worth of ice cream in the trash after eating about half of it.

To the last reviewer, there are no flavors listed in italian, second this is new york and the place is busy so choose your flavor, pay the man and move on! He's a really nice guy but he does not have time for your nonsense. The place is a little expensive, but there is no one else in new york that offers dark chocolate and real whip cream. Take it from a brooklyn guy, this is quality ice cream. This is the best gelato, best ice cream is brooklyn ice cream factory.

This ice cream really is very good. I thought $4+ for a cone was a little pricey, but I guess this is high-quality home-made stuff. I just wish the man behind the counter hadn't acted quite so ticked-off when I asked what one of the flavors was, as the label was in Italian.

Wow. Whenever I visit nyc, I always have to go here. It's the best ice cream in the city. To die for. I recommend one scoop of passionfruit and one scoop of raspberry - it's an amazing combo!

This is absolutely the best ice cream in the USA. It is the same as the best of Italy. I can't believe what passes as gelato here in the States, all sub-quality compared with Cones. The owner refuses to package and market the ice cream in order to avoid compromising its authentic taste. Now, that is integrity. This is a real treat and the bonus is, it is right next door to John's Pizza. So you get John's great pizza and then go next door to Cones for gelato and have a lovely memorable day.

The pumpkin ice cream is really good. All the ice cream looked so good it took us 15 minutes to pick what we wanted. Lots of thumbs up.

I am a true ice cream lover...tell me about it I tried every single flavors of B&Js, Haagen Daaz, Edys, Starbucks, etc. But this gelato place is just blissful!!! I tried 5 flavors so far (sorry forgot what they were something chocolates...no sorbets I don like sorbets) but omg omg so worth the money. Hmm I don kno what the fuss is about Coldstone it was so dissapointing Ill rather have a scoop of Cone's ice cream than the huge coldstone mix..
