Best summer cool down

This has to possibly be the best ice cream I've had. It's also the best Italian ice I've had the first time. Don't know they made it but it's definitely NOT any old ice flavored shaving

I can't get enough. It's more addictive than Walt's blue ice. We happened by chance when visiting so cal and saw the long lines so we figured it must be good. We were right. The ice cream is so creamy it must be illegal, and mixed with the fruity ice, well try some and you'll find out.

Large selection and excellent quality. We especially liked the layered mix of soft ice cream with gelato. We will be back

We stayed at Orange County Hyatt and we saw joes Italian ones from out hotel, we saw large queues and thought why are so many people buying ice creams from this place, so we thought we would give it a shot. The sorbet combined with rich whipped ice cream is something we had never experienced before and it was amazing.... More

Joe's was down the street from our hotel and we stopped for a visit and it was well worth it! Lots of flavors and choices. Good portions as well.

Great service with healthy sized free tastings. We shared the regular and it was perfect otherwise it would have been too much to eat one regular by myself! Fuzzy wuzzy and the bing cherry were my favorite.

This was across the street from the hotel we stayed at (the Hacienda Inn and Suites. Do not stay here.) and we always saw it busy. Well on the last day as my girlfriend and I were leaving we decided to see what all the hubbub was. Basically Italian iced desserts and ice cream. The options were numerous, the service... More

I LOVE this place, the ice cream is subpar to none. There are usually a few folks waiting for their ice cream and believe me, it's worth the wait

My family and I love this place. It can get a little busy, but well worth any wait. My favorite is the joelatte, italian ice (any flavor) with soft serve ice cream in the middle. A must visit if you are in the area
