I have been to Rita about 3 times. I prefer not to eat there because the prices are very high and the quality is average.

Stopped here for dessert one evening after dinner and it hit the spot! I had a small chocolate custard and it was excellent! My nephew had a cherry ice shake that was very good also.

Judging from the lines that assemble each day this is the place to go for desert. Service is right on

Stopped by for the mango gelatti with the vanilla custard. Tasted great on a hot day. The server at the window was very helpful.

We were happy to drive by this Rita's again. There were lots of ice flavors, including some that we had never seen before. Another pleasant Rita's experience.

My husband simply said "That S*&^ is good!" It was so refreshing on a very hot day. The only disappointment, we only went once on our visit. I would love to have tried more flavors.

Tells you something when it's pouring rain, windy and cold.....yet there's still a line, standing OUTSIDE. Enough said....who doesn't love Rita's?

Always enjoy it when I stop at Rita's Italian Ice. The location is Dover is on a corner and some days parking is tight but still worth the stop.

Best icee in town. Took my teen kids here and they loved it. Husband and myself loved it as well. Well worth the trip for ice cream or icee.

We had enjoyed the day with family, had a delicious dinner, then saw Rita's on way to hotel. It was a large quantity for a great, delicious dessert!
