We liked the flavors and location but the cost for what you get isn't great. If you need a gelato fix on 5th then this isn't bad but there are better options just a little off the beaten path.
The people watching is great and the different flavors we tried were great.

Aldo's are located in the Quinta Avenida, they have small locations but you can grab your ice cream to go and enjoy it while you walk the Quinta.

Try any of the specialities, as they are a little pricey but worth it, portions are huge and you can share with someone else, they prepare them beautifully and the flavours are great!

Good ice Cream but too expensive!!! At our hotel ice Cream was just as good but at no cost!! 15$ for the 2 of us, just 2 flavours, no topping, no whipped Cream. Not worth the price.

For what you get is a very expensive place.

I didnt enjoy the gelato, but it wast terrible either i just didnt like it.

One thing i didnt like is that they dont have a toilet in the premises! you have to go out of the building to the side of it and then find some stairs that take you to the toilet that is on a second floor, really?

Great gelato and ice-cream. First time I tried Cocoa ice cream and it was really good!! I loved it. Also had the strawberry smoothie with gelato on top- that was delicious. A little pricey, but you will find that all ice cream places on 5th ave are quiet pricey, this one is def the one to go! Also has very comfy chairs at the front where you can sit and watch people walk by- I would sit and relax for hours! LOVE IT
