    Soft serve (custard) and Italian ice, brilliant. A gem of the upper west side.

    On a HOT day you can't beat this. It is a little pricey for flavored ice but AMAZING flavors and the small is generous!

    Mango gelati with vanilla custard is my go-to but I decided to mix it up and got key lime with orange cream. SO GOOD. And freak your friends out with the weird colors.

    This store is tiny…don’t even think about bringing a stroller in here. But the awesome counter girls will help you create the best Misto (Italian Ice & Custard) treat!

    Try: Ices ($2.75-$4.25), frozen custard ($3.50-$5) or a blendini (italian ice, custard and a topping whipped together ($5.25).

    Great ice and custards! My fave is the blendini. Be careful when ordering the custard on a cup because a lady there would either give you really little or give you a small cup when ordering a medium.

    Gelati. Of course. Mango ice and vanilla custard is a good backup plan if they don't have any Florida orange ice!
