Pizza was terrible. Obviously made from frozen and it was very greasy. The lemon Italian ice had a strange taste to it, like it wasn't fresh.

The ice was good, although not like what you find in Little Italy..I was disappointed there was no actual fruit in the ice. The staff was very nice and friendly. Cute, convenient with slightly high prices...but I'm sure Southport rent dictates that.

We had a $10 Groupon so we got the 1/2 lb container of ice cream to go, for $12. Very expensive ($24 per lb???) but we figured, what the heck. When we got home and opened the container, we saw that it was mostly empty - and there were exactly FOUR SCOOPS inside. For $12 - that's $3 per scoop. No cone, no toppings. Just plain ice cream. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I won't be back to this place, what a rip off.

I used my Groupon to get two pints of Italian ice, Mango and Black Raspberry. The Mango had a great taste and smooth texture, but the Black Raspberry was icy and tasteless, very difficult to spoon out. Also, the scooper behind the counter didn't fill the pints to the top...I felt like I was being short-changed for having a Groupon.

From Our Editors

Time Out Chicago Kids raves about the strawberry lemonade flavor. Chicago magazine claims the "coconut tastes fresh from the tree." And Michael Mednick, owner and founder of Anthony's Italian Ice, knows exactly why. After a stint selling name-brand ices, an unsatisfied Mednick decided to test his Italian ice-making talents by tossing fresh fruits into an old ice-making machine. A series of trials, errors, and brain freezes finally led Mednick to the sweet spot he holds today: manning his own Southport store, where he churns out 25 decadent Italian ice flavors⎯such as lemon, mango, and peach⎯from scratch.

Though Italian ice is Anthony’s big draw, the shop also purveys smooth ice cream produced by fellow Chicago shop Bobtail, and offsets dessert appetites with Italian beef sandwiches, locally made soups, and Chicago-style hot dogs.
