Rita’s Italian ice is dense with flavor and as soft as ice cream. The consistency may be due to its freshness, it’s made fresh daily, and the ingredients: real chunks of fruit. At the new Chinatown location, flavors change daily, but their signature custard and shakes are always available and can be enjoyed separately or as a layered mix of custard and Italian ice called Gelati. And unlike many of the area's Rita's, this one is open year round, so you can always get dessert on your night out.
