Il Laboratorio del Gelato--business hour & your favorite flavors

  • f

I can't seem to find the business hour on the website. Anyone knows?

I'm a total gelato fan but there are so many flavors there. Please help me decide what to try when I visit NY in April. Thanks.

  1. That's because the hours are not posted -- one of my website peeves.

    You can e-mail them: info@laboratoriadelgelato.com. Or call them when you are here: 212-343-9922.

    1. When I was there in July I had the black plum sorbetto and it was amazing, but that's probably a seasonal flavor. IIRC they allow tastes, so you can decide for yourself.

      1. I'm not sure what to recommend because I like everything we've bought so far. Just go crazy with the sample tastes and get whatever you'll like.

          I fondly remember a pomegranite flavor, the cinamon (sp?) is always yummy, I think there once was a melon gelato (not sorbet, since the only other time I had melon gelato was in Italy), and their lemon is always tart and perfect.

            I went there once and they were out ouf a bunch of stuff but had rice pudding gelatto. I still dream about it...

              Are we limited to certain number of sample tastings?

            2. Hazelnut. Accept no substitutes.

                I like hazelnut but loved the licorice flavour.

                1. re: MMRuth

                  I'm not a huge fan of licorice. I'll eat it, but not when there are other things (hazelnuts!) available. One of these days I'm going to walk over to Il Lab & just bug the hell out of them, sampling. Purely for research purposes, of course.

                  1. re: small h

                    I love licorice, and, this flavour reminded me of these English licorice toffees that I enjoyed as a child.

              2. The only flavor I've ever tried was the honey lavender, but it was amazing.
