Amazing flavours...so delicious! Not for dieters! There is often a queue during post dinner dessert times. Either go another time or wait. It is worth the wait, unless the queue is very long.

We made a trip to Toscanini's last weekend after being told they have the best ice cream in town. As a huge ice cream lover, I was really disappointed. The flavors tasted great (i had the green tea and cold brew coffee), but the ice...More

So many choices of very unique flavors. Tried the B3 which was very good....brown sugar, brown butter and brownies. Long line but it moved quickly. The ice cream cakes looked great too. There is also a coffee bar inside.
