I won’t even pretend to know the first thing about Italian ice. I don’t really know much about custard, to be honest. All I know is this place has some tasty products that are perfect for cooling off during a hundred degree day.

If you’re not familiar with their offerings, it might take you a minute to figure out what to get. Here’s the lowdown…

They’ve got plenty of flavors of Italian ice in three sizes (small, regular, large). My kid got a chocolate Italian ice that had a lighter and more “icey” texture than sorbet. The small size was plenty for him. He barely made a dent in it and took the rest home.

They have chocolate and vanilla custard and you can add different flavors to them for $0.65. The piña colada flavor is excellent.

Also available are Concretes — vanilla or chocolate custard with items that you can mix-in. I opted for the vanilla and cheesecake bits. A regular size was $4.25. They mix it similar to a Blizzard at DQ to make a smooth and creamy product.

Their final option is a gelati. You select your size (regular or large), an ice flavor, and vanilla or chocolate custard to create a layered cup of deliciousness.

The service was friendly and informative. They were glad to answer any questions and explain the menu. No doubt it’s a family friendly place that I’m sure to visit plenty of times this summer.
