This gelateria in Mott Haven makes us happy—mainly because of their beachy hot pink decor, but also because they serve gelato (duh). You can get your basic flavors like vanilla, chocolate, and peanut butter, but they also have more interesting varieties like malabi and amarena. Sorbets and vegan flavors are also available, and if you order a scoop in a cup, they still stick a cone in there. Every place should do this. There’s nowhere to sit inside, but there are colorful chairs and tables on the sidewalk.
