Deemed “The World’s Best Ice Cream” by The New York Times, we at Toscanini’s take our ice creams, coffees and teas seriously, as do our customers. In September, 1981 Toscanini’s was founded by Gus Rancatore, Kurt Jaenicke, Pearl Morrison, Janet Rosenblatt, Rich Johnston, Diane Depczenski, Pat Johnston, Miriam Stewart, Donna Muffoletto, Cornelia Rancatore, Eleanor Rancatore and Mimi Rancatore, all of whom worked for free and made contributions that enabled the 800 square foot ice cream store at 899 Main Street to survive its first year. The time is clouded in mist -and myth- but Mim Stewart is believed to have made the transition from unpaid friend to first scooper.  She was quickly joined by David Shaw, from Fordham Prep and MIT.

Lots of flavors of ice cream, all made with high quality ice cream base. The flavors range from basic (vanilla, chocolate, etc) to crowd favorites (B3 which is brownie, brown butter, and brown sugar) to more adventurous flavors (these often rotate in and out). They also sell ice cream cakes and espresso beverages.

Delicious ice cream! So creamy and great flavors. Really nice service and offered to let us try multiple flavors. I got a small cup which allows 2 flavors and chose the B3 and pumpkin fluff. Both flavors were amazing. Definitely will be back!

This is one of the best ice cream shops in the area if not the best. I get the same thing 98% of the time because it’s just that good. The B3. It’s the best ice cream and it always makes me so happy. Always down to go to Toscanini’s

Flavors are great and the quality of the ice cream is amazing! The small is pretty big and features 2 flavors so their servings are big enough for one nice night for ice cream. They also change their flavors all the time, so typically when you come back, there will be something new and equally tasty as the flavor you had last time!

My boyfriend and I have gone here twice in the last week: once on my birthday and another shortly after to uh celebrate my birthday again. Their goat cheese brownie ice cream is incredible. I may feel terrible the next day thanks to my lactose intolerance but it’s worth it. Also, my boyfriend is allergic to tree nuts and they were super kind in washing the spoons to ensure he could enjoy the ice cream as well!

We live a few blocks away.. we’ll be back. 🙂
