You gotta eat here for a treat. Try the combo of soft serve and ice. I did badda bing cherry and mango ices with chocolate and vanilla soft serve. Chocolate for the cherry and mango for the vanilla. Outstanding. What a great find and a great treat. Loved it. You gotta treat yourself to here.

We visited Joe's Italian Ice on a whim while on a Disneyland vacation. Our hotel was right next door and we noticed lots of people there night after night. Glad we did. The itialian ice was extremely good. Very fresh and natural tasting. My only complaint is that there were so many flavors to choose from it was very hard... More

I passed this place for years and finally stopped in after observing the long lines. Damn I wish I had stopped in years ago. I love the fuzzy wuzzy ice!

OMG this place is unbelievably good! Who would think one of the best restaurants in a major California city is an italian ice stand, but WOW! Is it ever! I am usually an italian ice purist, liking it to be all by itself in the cup. But one day I decided to try it with the custard on top and... More

As a visitor I had never heard of this place. Even though we were quite full, we stopped for a sweet treat. And we definitely got a treat. The Italian ice was superb. Next time in Anaheim, it will be a must :)

The different taste of combining Italian ice with soft serve makes it taste like a cream cicle with different flavors.

The Italian ice shop is right next door to our hotel. We walked over there for a dessert. I had the Bada Bing Cheery Italian ice. It was bing cherry flavored with bits of cherry in it. It has a texture like sorbet only lighter. I used to get these green Italian ice bars from the ice cream man when... More

Went there with the family and tried the Bada Bing cherry which had big pieces of bing cherries and it was excellent. My granddaughter had the wild cherry which she enjoyed and daughter in law had the mango which we all enjoyed. Would definitely recommend this place for a family treat and the employees are very friendly.
