I just love Rita's a bit pricey though. But quality is good. Flavors are all tastes. Add the galotto for a great treat.

Today was $.99 day at Rita's. What a delicious treat. Extra creamy but firm enough that is wasn't running down my arm. I will savor the cone.

When we're on Beach Ave., we often go to Rita's for gelati. Very good. My favorite is the mango gelati, or just the vanilla custard. Easy to get to from any place on Beach Ave.

Great location. Outdoor seating available. Fast service. Plenty of Rita options to choose from. And they take credit cards if need be.

We took an early afternoon break to enjoy a refreshing soft ice cream at Rita's. The ice cream hit the spot and the service was great. We sat at one of the few tables outside, enjoyed he ocean breeze, and watched our fellow tourists stroll...More

At the suggestion of Katlyn at the Grand Hotel, we had Rita's Water Ice provide a Rita's Water Ice Party on Thursday afternoon of our conference. Everyone loved it!!!

Very central location on the beach avenue, with seating outside which is shared with the adjacent lobster roll place. Very friendly and helpful service.
