“great”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

Ralph's has the best tasting soft italian ices. Their ice cream is good also. It gets crowded during the summer months with long lines, but worth the wait.

“Great Place to visit in NYC”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great for water, cream or Italian style ices. Also great for ice cream.
Be prepared for long lines. Open seasonal. Do not go to any other then the original on Port Richmond Ave. Much cheaper and better ice cream then carvel. When they are open I bring out of town family. They can not ever decide what they want-all excellent. Always a free samples before any decision making. CASH ONLY!

“Yummy”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

These are the best ices you will ever taste. The line is always around the block in Port Richmond, which is the original shop. Buy the medium instead of the large. Although the cup sizes are different, it basically is the same amount and you save money!

“Very Good Italian Ice”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This italian ice shop is really great! The ice is always delicious. It's right across the street from Denino's Pizzeria, a great pizza place where you an have dinner, and then walk over to Ralph's for some dessert. Just make sure to expect about a 5 minute wait since there's always a line of people waiting to get ice.

“Ices like they used to be!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The wide variety of ices will make you think long and hard about which one you want. But the good news is, you can't really make a mistake. From the common to the unusual flavors, I've yet to find one that disappointed! ENJOY!!!
