“Great Italian Ice”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Stopped by one evening for the Italian ice and it was fantastic. Friends have been raving about the Italian ice and my husband and I decided to try it. I'm glad we did.

“Old World Italian”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Civitello's has the best homemade lemon Italian Ice. They also have wonderful homemade Italian cookies. But, the absolute best thing they have is their Eggplant Parmesan sandwiches on their homemade bread! You can only get these on Wednesday and Friday! Get there before 12:00 because they do run out quickly. If you like eggplant, you will LOVE these sandwiches!

“Home Made Italian Ice”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

They now have added dinner, and an outdoor patio. I have had the eggplant sandwich, one the best around! We had dinner across the street. For dessert you have to stop here for pastry, Gelato or their famous "lemon ice". No one makes better ice than they do. They help create the feeling of a little neighbor hood that is from another time. You can go for lunch, dinner or just Ice, and stroll around the street.

“Best Italian Ice in the Area!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Go on Wednesday or Friday (before 1:30-2pm) for an eggplant parm sandwich. It is on homemade bread, eggplant parm, and ask for some fontinella cheese. The Italian Ice is the best. I look forward to it every summer. There tiramisu is also excellent. It is a great place to stop in if you need to bring a hostess gift (can make plates of cookies/pastries). Also has a wide variety of gelato.

“Best Italian Pastries in the Region”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

This little out of the way Italian cafe/bakery has the best Gelato, and cream puffs to die for! Everything is Fresh every day and is the real thing for Italian food. Move over Villa Italia Civitellos is pushing you aside on quility and quanity. They also do all the work and don't freeze the pastries
