“Sweet treat after a nice Pizza dinner.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Told my husband that on my adventure to see both Sandy Hook and Navesink Twin Lights Lighthouse, I stopped at the Ralph's Italian ices. Loved it. I highly recommend you stop and treat yourself with a cool treat. Our friends live on Staten Island and they grew up here. I mentioned I stop at a Ralph's famous Italian Ices...he told me the Original was across the street from Denino's. So, we went and had a treat.

“A Staten Island favorite - it will be one of your favorites too”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Ralph's has been around forever and there are several locations. There are a wide variety of flavors of cream and water ices. If you aren't sure if you will like a flavor, just ask and they will give you a free sample. Feel free to combine 2 flavors in a cup. Very fresh products.
Enjoy!

“After Pizza, what else?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

After pizza, we walked across the street to find 30-40 people in lines at the four walk up windows at Ralph's Italian Ice. Two girls at each window made the wait a short one. Reading over the 50-60 favors of "creamed Italian ice" made the time fly. Neither of us had heard of creamed ice, but typical for us we both choose a choclate variant, mine was moose chip and my partner got the fudge brownie. Rich, creamy, choclatey, not quite like ice cream, not gelato, but somewhere in that dessert family. A great après-pizza binge!
