Love this place!

Great selection of flavors and since the new ownership, always a friendly face behind the counter. Chocolate cream pie flavor is yummy and I normally get a sea salted toffee and almond flavor that I love so much.

We recently hit Boombalatti's in The Forum for an after dinner treat. It's a cute little ice cream shop in the middle of other restaurants and shops in the area. The staff is young (as is typical of the genre) but fun and helpful - they know their product. We sampled a number of flavors from coffee to chocolate to... More

After a nice day of shopping we stopped off for ice cream. There were many flavors to choose from & they all looked great. My wife had a chocolate almond flavor and coconut cream on a sugar cone & I had coconut cream and toffee in a dish. Coconut Cream was outstanding and I thought the toffee was also good,... More

Yummy ice creams with lots of toppings available to choose from . It would be nice if they took orders in the car :)))) they let me try a few candle ice creams before I could make my choice .

Found this little gem on Trip Advisor and so glad we did. My mom and I each had the small sampler; 4 small scoops of different flavors of your choice. What a great idea! The staff was very friendly and knowledgable about the flavors.

We were looking for a scoop of ice cream to top off a day at the beach. Surprise, found Boombalatti's with their fresh, made in the store, ice cream. The Andes chocolate mint ice cream was great. This will be a regular stop when in Wilmington.

I have been to Boombalati's several times and I can understand the complaints people had about the previous owner. He was not very personable but I found him always to be nice and maybe just overwhelmed. Fast forward to now. Boombalati's has new owners. They are very nice and appreciative of the business. I even had a chance to talk... More
