I just read the NY press "best of NY" issue. The only thing that caught my eye was the claim that Il Gelatone on 3rd Ave between 28-29 served gelato comparable to a real Roman gelateria. Please say this is really true- I spent some time in Rome and became practically addicted to ther gelato and have not been able to find any gelato that compares in NY. The Italians really know how to mix a creaminess with a pure iciness without the ridiculous sweetness of America-which reminds me of the granita di cafe which I also haven't been able to find a decent rendition of in my NY years. Although my gelato addiction will probably lead me there sometime, I'd appreciate a chowhound's help to know whether I should go tomorrow or if it can wait a couple of weeks.
