So many options to choose from you will enjoy this place. Fun treat to try once if you're around the area. Nice place to stop on a warm day.

Great place for italian ice- so if you want something after dinner then this is a great place but there is no place to really sit.

Excellent Service!!! So many choices. Can't decide? Ask for a sample. Always consistent with their product. Try the Joe Latti, Italian Ice and Creamy Soft Soft. The consistency is perfect never runny always creamy. Can't wait to go back

My bf and I ordered the poison apple and root beer while watching a female server carrying a bench back into the store while her male colleague watched!

However, I had to try it myself. Initially, I thought I had ordered something plain, which was soft serve vanilla. Holy Toledo Batman, the soft... More

I had the horchata and the wifey had blackberry of the "Joe Latti". The ice is a dense version of shave ice, thick but not crunchy. Flavors were excellent. The soft serve they use to layer in the cup was not to our liking. My best description is that it had an oily mouth feel and the flavor bland.

There are plenty of flavors to chose from and you can sample it. It is the creamiest ice cream I have ever had. Gelato from Italy has nothing on this place!
