Wonderful ice cream/ ice shop. Ices were good, help was friendly and the price was reasonable. Need I say more.

Soft serve was amazing, especially with a chocolate dip! So many flavors to choose from if you want something other than soft serve.

Nice ice cream shop, I did not try their Italian ices, but did enjoy their soft serve frozen yogurt. Their other frozen yogurts were not in yet. Their servers were wonderful & worked so hard! I would recommend allowing the guests to view the ice creams in the case for a better selection.

I used Ralphs Ice Cream Cart for a Corporate Event this summer and it was a great turnout with my clients. Thank you for the assistance.

Pretty good soft serve. Try the special flavors of the day. Not a generous portion of ice cream when ordering a cone. I've been here several times and will go back. Surrounding area give the appearance of a less than desirable location to sit outside and enjoy.

Thank Bill R

Scattered across Long Island, there exists a place where sensuous dreams of fantastic flavor and cool refreshment do in fact come true. A place where, for a few paltry dollars, you can spend several minutes of rapturous enjoyment huddled over a small cup of a delectable frozen treat, clutching a plastic spoon eagerly.

I am talking about Ralph's Italian Famous Italian Ices, and the chain store is poised to open in downtown Riverhead this spring, promising a wealth of mind-boggling flavor ideas that will have you beaming and licking your lips as you scan the extensive menu.

With numerous locations on the Long Island, chances are there is one not too far from you, and you may already be familiar with the tantalizing frozen delight. I can bet the anticipation is already brewing as you remember your favorite flavor from last summer. But if you've yet to experience the wonder of Ralph's, let me enlighten you.

The setup is simple.
Hundreds of containers filled with mouth-watering ices waiting to be served to a line full of anxiously waiting patrons. Choose from either water ices or creme, ice cream, yogurt and even a small selection of low-carb no sugar added ices. Nearly the entire flavor spectrum is covered. Impossible to describe them all, you'll find yourself struggling to choose between Mango, Key Lime pie, Orange n' Cream, Coconut Raspberry Tart, and Strawberry Daiquiri. You'll find yourself swooning over Chocolate Mousse, Bubblegum, Honeydew, and Blueberry. You'll definitely want to share that Pineapple, Passion Fruit, Spumoni, and Canoli.

A simple cup of ices not enticing enough for you? How about one of Ralph's specialty ice cappuccinos, twisters, Arctic shakes or a blended fruit smoothie? And there are more delicious liquid creations to be had.

A perfect treat for a hot summer day, refreshing after a nice walk or a good barbecue. But be warned, after one visit, your kids may be begging you to go back for more each and every day. However, after one taste, you may find yourself leading the way!

Still not convinced? Well, if you are the old-fashioned sort who thinks summer is all about ice-cream, then not to worry. Ralph's also has a generous selection of your favorite flavors, sundaes, and milkshakes.

Coupons will be numerous in your local papers, and gift certificates are also available.

If that's not enough let Ralph's Ice your next party or affair where we will bring these delicious ices to you.
