It doesn't matter what time of day it is, there is always a ton of people in line there. So, my friends and I decided to stop one day, years ago. Loved it!! The food and the ice-cream were delicious. I have been at the new location and I still like it, but the prices have gone way up. I... More

Been coming here for years. The original location was just down the street. Yes their expensive but well worth the splurge every now & then. They also have regular hand scooped ice crème.

I had a mango Italian ice and if was great. Very fresh tasting mango flavor and good creamy consistency. Would love to try some other flavors next time I'm in town.

I thought $13.00 was a bit much to pay for two sundaes but it was worth it. My husband and I probably could have shared one and been fine. Lots of choices and a clean, bright place.

Best ice cream I have ever had... definitely try a sundae! Just a hop, skip and jump from many hotels!

We stopped here at night to gets some Italian ice. We bought 6 different flavors to try. All where very good and the young ladies inside where funny and friendly even when they where busy. I will definitely get Italian ice here again. My only complaint was they didn't have banana on the night we where there.

Going to our hotel every night we kept passing this place and always noticing lots of people there. So we decided to stop and try this place out and what a great place. There is a lot of options here to chose from from Italian ice to banana splits and ice creme cones. This place is a fair value for... More
