I especially love their chocolate chip. They use premium large chocolate chunks! We have been getting my son's birthday cakes here for 19 years (he does not like regular cake, only Rancatore's ice cream cake, and he is now 19 years old!). Love it!

Among the best in Eastern Massachusetts, along with Reasons To Be Cheerful in Concord. Ranc's is delicious, and worth a ride to Lexington! Don't miss the Kulfi Ice Cream.

This establishment is almost as old as the revolutionary statue in the lexington town center!! One can never go wrong with what ever cone is ordered. The friendly high schooler who man the counter are more than happy for you to taste multiple times!

Where else can you find kulfi (an Indian flavor) or salted caramel ? The hot fudge is excellent too. Good location and reasonable prices. Eat in or take out.

I have 2 favorite ice cream places in NA - one is in Quebec north of Ottawa the other is Rancatore's. Ranc's has the creamiest and highest quality ice cream around this area - and the best pistachio anywhere.

For some reason all of the ice cream places in this area are expensive. That being said, if you can afford the five bucks (or more) for a medium cone it's worth it. You get what you pay for, and the folks at Rancatore's use premium ingredients to produce some great-tasting ice cream. I give them four starts because the... More

Best frozen yogurt ever! What made this cone extra special was my choice of cone--the chocolate chip cone. Awesome.

Impossible to say what their best offering is and that is a matter of one's personal tastes but, whatever your tastes run to, they will have something to satisfy it. Go and... More

We tried it on a recommendation from others and could not have beenore let down. Service was ok but the IceCream didn't taste anymore special than a Bryers 1/2 gallon from Stop&Shop Shop. The prices were very high even for Lexingtons inflated ego! We won't be returning anytime soon.
