Just had some great gelato at a fairly new place in bensonhurst, called oro verde gelati espresso bar, 1740 86th street. they seem to be renting space from a next door tanning salon (!), but it is really topnotch. up there with villabate or grom. not in a great location for getting much business, and based on my conversation with the owner gino, it doesnt seem theyre getting much attention, so spread the word. had great espresso, pistaccio, nocciola and cherry gelati.
call to make sure theyre open 646 708 4622.
