The woman working the week of October 21st was very polite, accommodating and personable. She gave us a sample of several different flavors and made suggestions. They will be closing for the season soon, we will be back to Rita's next year.

They need to windows open because the workers talk a lot and aren't focused on the fact that customers are standing in a line outside in the rain.

From Our Editors

When a hot summer hit in 1984, Bob Tumolo wanted to help his neighbors cool down. But instead of crafting traditional ice cream or sticking a straw into a fire hydrant, he decided to formulate his own recipes for italian ice, using fresh fruit to craft each batch. Ices in a wide range of flavors filled chilly cases at the original Rita’s Ice shop, and those recipes still inform the treats at franchises across the country.

Larry and Steve, owners of Rita's Ice of Squirrel Hill, have been whipping up those icy treats for the past 10 years, drawing on ingredients such as key limes and root beer to create certified-kosher italian ice. Each batch is served within 36 hours of its creation, ensuring every cup of ice is fresh and hasn’t been sitting around in an Eskimo’s pocket for the last week. The shop also offers up scoops of creamy frozen custard customized with mix-ins such as M&Ms, Nerds, and Reese’s Pieces or layer the custard with italian ice to create the store’s famous gelati.
