“Ice is good, custard was eh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Not like Italian ices in NY, but good ice for Texas. Their lemon ice was good (let it melt some than drink it, sweet yet sour!), i tried mango, that was also great. Very refreshing for hot/humid days, right across (a busy street) from the beach, they have outdoor seating too. I had the vanilla custard sundae in a waffle cup, not feeling it. Freddy's Frozen Custard turtle sundae is wayyyy better. Stick to ice baby!

“Worth the stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Had the wild black cherry ice and vanilla custard ("gelati" - love that) while my H had the chocolate custard in a waffle cone. Simply marvelous!

“Always good! Must stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I love everything they make and if you sign up for their app they can tell you when your favorite flavors are in. I love the juicy pear ice and cranberry ice is amazing. The blendini is good with heath bits. Everyone in the family finds something they like.

“Great custard and ice drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

The custard and the Italian ice drinks were the perfect treat for a hot day in Galveston. We stopped in during a bike ride along the Seawall, which made for a fun little trip.
