Great selection of Italian ice. The creamy gelato that's served inside the Italian ice is so delicious. But it's only served on the medium size or larger. You are always welcome to sample as many flavors as you like before choosing your final selection. Their Mango Tango and Wild Cherry with Gelato is pretty amazing.

We saw this place on the drive by and assumed it was a gelato place. They don't serve gelato but the Italian ice mixed with soft serve was excellent and refreshing!

Stopped by here after checking out of our hotel after a weekend trip to Disney. Great treat for the family on a long drive home.

I've had Rita's and raved about it.. but this tops it! Fine shaved Ice with a great selection of exotic flavors. I didn't have the ice cream, but it looked equally amazing. I want to go back... too back there isn't one in Colorado! Next time I'm in Anaheim, it'll be a priority for sure!

A perfect place for a late night treat after an exhausting and busy day. I had the Mango Tango and i really enjoyed it. My little sisters had the smurf poison. I personally didn't like the smurf poison, yet kids sure like sour stuff. All in all, it's really worth a visit.

I ordered a simple ice cream cone and my cone itself was stale. The ise cream was great but it was hindered by a stale cone.
