Cute atmosphere and delicious snacks made for a sugary sweet end to our college move-in trip. Try the peach ice!

Joe's is the bomb! The flavors of Italian ice are out of this world and you can sample them first! Get the Joe Latti, your choice of Italian ice layered with a creamy soft serve vanilla ice cream. Trust me. Parking stinks, and the lines can get long, but it is most definitely a must go in Anaheim! I'd go... More

I love ice cream, especially chocolate ice cream! Their chocolate hand-scoped ice cream is hands down the best i've ever had!

This place is great for ice cream year round. It's location is relatively close to Disneyland *California Adventure side. I had great ice cream on a warm, October day.

Great selection of Italian ice. The creamy gelato that's served inside the Italian ice is so delicious. But it's only served on the medium size or larger. You are always welcome to sample as many flavors as you like before choosing your final selection. Their Mango Tango and Wild Cherry with Gelato is pretty amazing.

We saw this place on the drive by and assumed it was a gelato place. They don't serve gelato but the Italian ice mixed with soft serve was excellent and refreshing!

Stopped by here after checking out of our hotel after a weekend trip to Disney. Great treat for the family on a long drive home.

I've had Rita's and raved about it.. but this tops it! Fine shaved Ice with a great selection of exotic flavors. I didn't have the ice cream, but it looked equally amazing. I want to go back... too back there isn't one in Colorado! Next time I'm in Anaheim, it'll be a priority for sure!
