“Delicious Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We decided to try Toscanini's after reading about their awards. We were not let down, the B3 is uniquely delicious and one of my favorite flavors. We have gone back to and tried multiple flavors, from sour cream to hydrox cookie and all have been great. While they are a little pricey and the seating is limited if you are in the area I would highly recommend getting a scoop.

“Best ice cream, and not only”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

No doubt, the best ice cream in Boston. Just the names of the amazing flavor is a celebration by itself. So there's a very loud and colorful party going on in your brain and it's so hard to make a decision. I saw large families or group of friends all standing by the counter, trying to taste everything (and the servers are really patient with that). I really liked the Khulfee flavor, but everything I tasted was amazing. Also an important tip, they make one of the best coffee in town.

“Best ice cream joint I've been to - anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

We wanted ice cream after a nice Mexican dinner, and found this on Google Maps. What a treat! The place was packed on a cold night, yet the staff moved people along quickly. Specialty ice cream and great coffee makes for the perfect end to a casual night out. I had the Ginger Snap and Molasses ice cream, and everyone in my group started eating mine because it was so good. Unique in that it had a little bite, and the molasses adds sweetness without overdoing it. I should have ordered a douple scoop. I wish they could ship a gallon of it back to me in Florida. It was that good. Atmosphere is quaint college town coffee shop. Small shop but it has adequate seating. Worth the trip and a short wait to have this.

“Excellent ice cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

We had this after a good meal in Cambridge. The place was packed with people getting ice cream in mid August on a warm mid week evening.
Service was quick though and the servers were friendly, offering out samples of the unique ice cream flavours they offer.
We tried chocolate caramel, ovaltine, cookie dough and burnt caramel. All of the flavours were very good and you probably couldn't go wrong trying any of their flavours.
The place has a very hip vibe going on as well.

“While Toscanini was Italian, Ice Cream here is American”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very good Ice Cream, for Gelato stick to your fond memories in Firenze or Roma. It is home made though so very fresh taste and always busy.
