We have visited twice over the summer for ice-cream, lovely white, light and fresh ice-cream like we had when we were kids, lots of other ice-cream places in the town but this is the best.

Was staying in a local B & B and as we had all travelled straight from work, arrived and were really hungry. This chippie was right next door, so decision made, some ships would really hit the spot and keep us going until dinner later. We order 2 portions of chips- which cost under £2.50 in total

Bit puzzled why Cabrelli's is listed as a West End Cafe? It's a standard scottish italian chippy and not a cafe. Oh and people are right about the opening hours and closed periods - incredibly frustrating in the height of summer when you want a nice ice cream by the loch! Anyways, i'm afraid to say that Cabrelli's has lost... More

This is not a restaurant, it is a chippie which does excellent home made ice cream, delicious cole slaw and totally average fish and chips. Other contributors have commented about their often inexplicable opening hours and frequent closed periods. This is because the (sometimes quarrelsome) proprietors are Italian and very fond of nipping back to the homeland from time to... More

I use to go to the Golden Chip and eat here for a while but the food got really greasy and chips not cooked right so I went back to the Golden Chip and always eat there now

Went to Cabrelli's for an ice cream for the first time in about 20 years! Lovely light and cooling taste, took me back to when I was a wee boy, and we had ice cream for a Sunday treat. Fab!!

This place has funny opening times. I think it depends if they can be bothered. You can go in here and have a very good takeaway meal and on another day you can get one that you will put in the bin half way through. No consistency and as a result it no longer has the massive queues it used... More

Ever since I was a little girl I have been coming out to Linlithgow to get an ice cream sponge or oyster. Their homemade ice cream is the best ice cream I have ever tasted and why keep returning. This ice cream shop is also a chip shop

I don't care to much for the food here but it has some of the best ice-cream I have ever had (next to Lucas)

There's something special about fresh Italian Ice Cream. It's just not like Scottish or even Cornish! Cabrelli's is a fine example.
