We love to buy Aldo's ice creams because the people serving in there are very friendly Mexicain people no airs and grace about them they always give you a friendly smile and we like that

Very good gelato. Better than the chain store ice cream up the street. Polite service, allowed us to taste different flavors before choosing. Unfortunately, they have not learned to serve it in the shape of a flower like in Italy.

More ice cream than gelato. Very hard, scooped instead of using a spatula. Avoid this 'gelato' place. It's a farce. The girl was unresponsive, cleaning the counter when we were trying to order.More

Stopped in while strolling 5th Ave in the afternoon. The pistacchio and passion fruit gelato we had was really good. We sat and enjoyed the treat in their location and was a nice break from all the walking.
