“The original Ralph's!”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Since this is the original location, it is my favorite location, even if I don't live that close to it anymore. I don't know if Ralph's and Denino's planned being across the street from each other back in the day but it is a perfect strategy. Have the best pizza on SI and then go across the street for the best dessert on SI!

Since it is so popular, on a good night, expect to wait on lines. But if you never had Ralph's... just know there are lines for a reason. You won't be disappointed!

“All kinds of ice”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Water ice, creme ice, all flavors of ice cream. You can't go wrong. I pass by here a lot, most of the time the line is long. Sometimes I don't have the time to stop. Every once in a while there is a lull in the action, then it is a guaranteed stop. I can feel the brain freeze. There is no better ice than RALPHS !!!!!

“Best Ices in NY”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I love Ralph's Ices. jelly ring is my all time favorite. They have so many flavors you can eat one each day and still may not taste them all. A must when on Staten Island.

“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.
