I was in Cambridge over the weekend,and we made a point to stop for ice cream. The ice cream was so rich, one scoop was enough. My daughter asked for two, to try two flavors, and she could not finish it. The store was very crowded, and no place to sit indoors, but we enjoyed our ice cream outside, there... More

Now it's not the world's best ice cream as some say, however, it is delicious! The texture and portions are awesome! I wanted two flavors in a small cone and after I saw the guy put the first scoop on the cone I was hoping he would forget the second because it was already so much. Well, at any rate... More

They offered a wide variety of ice cram flavors with generous helpings. I tried the crunchy peanut butter and the coffee scoops. They were very tasty with a good creamy texture. It was during the summer and the line was pretty long. I expected a very long wait. However the service was quick and efficient. I was in line for... More

We went to Toscanini's for a quick treat before heading into town to see the fireworks. The sign says "Best Ice-Cream in the world." by the New York Times. That was enough to peek my interest, as did the line going out the door. We tried the coffee hydrox and Khulfee (cardamon With Chopped Almonds + Pistachios). The coffee hydrox... More

I thought I knew good ice cream but Toscanini's proved me wrong. I've had gelato in Rome, soft serve in Hokkaido, "gastronomic" ice cream in SF, and many more, but Toscanini's was a whole new level of "wow." I had a small coffee chip, and though it was on the pricier side, it was so worth it. The chunks were... More

We visited for late night ice cream after a meal out and the ice cream is great. Lots of variety and the quality is great.

I decided to try this place based on other review from TA. I was not disappointed by any means but the flavour I had was by no means the best in the world, I have had much better to be honest. Quick at being served.

We had an ice-cream here after attending a function in Cambridge. It was just average ice-cream and definitely nothing out of the ordinary I have to say. Firstly, we tried a few of the ice-cream flavours and I can't say that anything on offer totally amazed me so that I would have a strong desire to return. On the night... More
