RALPH’S ITALIAN ICES
Address: 607 Newman Springs Road, Lincroft, NJ 07738
Ralph’s is an Italian ice place in Lincroft that I’ve been to a few times in the past year with friends of mine, and the other day we stopped by to grab something to chill out. It’s got a really convenient location, especially near some of the restaurants in the area and you can definitely just walk over after a meal or something. A great stop during the summer when the weather is nice outside.
The place has a really large selection of stuff; I felt like I was walking up to the ice cream truck and I see all of the different things plastered on the wall, not really knowing what to choose. Ralph’s offers a ton of stuff, from ices to ice cream to shakes, and they have a ton of different flavors for them too. I went ahead and got a Twister (layered ice cream, Italian ice, and ice cream) with vanilla ice cream and cookie dough ice. I thought it tasted really great, as the flavor and consistency of both things were on point. The cup was overflowing with ice cream and it was dripping everywhere. Luckily, we ate at a table that they had on the side and I just plopped it down on there, dripping into the grass. Like I’ve mentioned in a previous review, I’m a fan of dessert places such as this. Even though Ralph’s has a lot of different flavors, I’m pretty confident that most (if not all) of them are pretty darn good.
Here are my rankings for Ralph’s:
Food: 4.5 / 5
Taste was great, texture was great, really refreshing. Great combinations to choose from on the menu too.
There is a small area on the side of the shop with tables that you can sit down at to enjoy your dessert.
Service: 5 / 5
The girl in the stand was really quick at making our desserts.
Price: 4 / 5
The prices are very reasonable and comparable to the other dessert places in the area. I think my dessert might have been a bit on the more expensive side since it is considered one of their specialty items.
Overall: 13.5 / 15 (90%)
