A new gelato shop has landed in Back Bay. Amorino is a chain started by two Italians - but first launched in Paris - that's making its way around the US. They use a special spatula to scoop your ice cream and promises to let you choose as many flavors as you like, no matter what size you buy. Even all 16 if you want.
They also have macarons, but not your run-off-the-mill maracons. They're filled with gelato!
They're starting out with 16 flavors (one of them rotate monthly) for now, and will move up to 24 when it gets warmer out.
I don't normally order ice cream cones because I'm way too messy, but if you do, they will shape your ice cream into a flower on top of the cone. Gelato flower. Can I get a dozen of those for Valentine instead or roses, please?
They also have waffles (topped with gelato), focaccina filled with gelato (or nutella), crepes, etc - along with good coffee and really thick hot chocolate. The seating area is pretty nice, making this a nice place to stop for desserts and coffee when you're in the Newbury St area.
