“Really great ice cream, beautiful atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Christina's is very fine ice cream. I especially love the cinnamon flavor. It's a charming place, too, in a cool area with lots to see and walk to. It's also next to a shop also named Christina's that sells spices and other food luxury items. As an ice cream place I would place Christina's in the artistic, hip category. It has flavors like khulfi and Bailey's Irish cream. In taste and quality I'd rate it about even with J. P. Lick's — above average, but a level below truly fantastic places like Toscanini's (the best in Cambridge hands down).

“A well-established gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Christina's has been around since before I moved to the area in 1987. Although it has changed hands, the quality has always been great: delicious ice cream, yogurt and sorbet and other treats at a reasonable price in a funky, relaxed atmoshphere. Tastes are free and the huge variety of flavors well worth trying! I highly recommend.

“will have to go back to try those unusual flavors”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Thought we were too full as we walked by after meeting friends for brunch next door, but couldn't resist - got a few small servings to taste a couple favorites - Mango Sorbet and Mexican Chocolate both as good as we've had. Will definitely be back!

“Drop in for dessert after the East Coast Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

One of my favorite evenings begins with dinner at the East Coast Grill followed with dessert at Christina's. If you are an ice cream addict, your addiction will be satiated with one visit.

“Great ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Long list of flavors, great ice cream, a definite must visit if you are in the area. The place was full even though is was freezing outside, which gives you some indication how good the ice cream is.
