carroll gardens gelato

ben61820 Mar 12, 2007 06:47 AM

theres a couple gelato places along court street in carroll gardens. some (or all maybe) are mainly pizza places but make a point of adverting their gelato. anyone have favorites? with this nice warmer weather im all but ready for ice cream:) i feel like i know gelato pretty well - ate a bunch working in different italian restaurants and just plain old eaten a lot of it all around. anyway, just looking for good stuff without trekking all the way in to Chelsea Market in manhattan....thanks.

    Monteleone's makes fantastic gelato, pistachio and chocolate. It's homemade and super creamy. It was a sad time last year without it.

      I haven't been impressed by any of the neighborhood gelato. It's really just regular ice cream under a different name, and not even particularly good ice cream at that.

      One Girl Cookies on Dean sells Laboratorio Gelato -- that's your best bet in the neighborhood.

        for gelato, I think only Sals pizza on Court sells it on the street.

        for Italian ice ( which is NOT gelato!) I'd say the new Monteleone/Cammareri is the nabe fave with a close 2nd being Court Pastry.
