Neighborhood shop specializes in icy Italian treats featuring candy and fruit flavors. – In Short
It is hard to miss the giant red ice that sits atop the sign for this small shop. Fresh, nonfat Italian ices are made fresh daily and served up in small, medium or large white paper cups. Kids love flavors like cherry and chocolate, while adults enjoy the blood orange and pomegranate. While this store specializes in ice, frozen yogurt and candy are also available for the less than chilly crowd. Several stools and a bar facing the glass window allow customers to relax and enjoy their ice while people watching on Montana Avenue.
Hits: There is a wide range of flavors, and their sweetness is a refreshing change from the tart Pinkberry craze.
Misses: Seating is limited, and the selection of frozen yogurt options is also small, with usually only vanilla and chocolate available.
Best Italian Ices in the Los Angeles area. – These are the best Italian Ices I have tasted in years. There used to be a few good places spread around Los Angeles, but now they have all disappeared, and all that is left is Di Dio's. The quality is great, and you can taste the freshness. Seasonal flavors such as Bl__d Orange and Pomegranite are worth waiting for, and once they are gone, you count the days until the new season rolls around. I definitely recommend this place, and only wish there were more locations.
