Absolutely delicious! If you like banana cream pie I recommend a blendini with banana ice, vanilla custard, and vanilla wafers! It's amazing!

Their ices are delicious! Had the key lime and the tartness was spot on. Also sampled the blood orange and will get that the next time. Their service was very prompt and accommodating. Also, they has a lot of gluten free choices.

I stop by here frequently for a refreshing treat! I like their raspberry ice gelati! Their frozen custard is one of my favorites as well!

Anyone should be able to find a flavor they like, since there are many and they change frequently - and the staff is generally very nice and patient while you figure out your order. It is a walk-up stand, so there is no indoor area...More

We travel to Columbus twice a year to visit family and we always stop at Rita's because we don't have one at home. We love the gelati: smooth and creamy vanilla custard nestled in a frosty flavored ice. The selection of flavors is fabulous and...More
