Italian Ice Happiness at Rita’s Italian Ice
Italian Ice is not just for the summer months but is meant to enjoy all year long. It is one of our favorite treats to enjoy throughout the year and Rita’s Italian Ice is one of our all-time favorite places to go in Orange County. With our favorite sushi joint and laser tag in the same shopping center, we frequent Rita’s on a regular basis.
Rita’s is located right across from the movie theater in the Kaleidoscope shopping center in Mission Viejo. It is a bright and cheery store that is welcoming to adults and children of all ages. When you family first enters, you’ll be greeted with a freezer case full of different flavors of Italian Ice. Kids can sample all the flavors that their heart desires before picking the flavor of their choice.
While they have a “milk shake” option, the two popular choices are to have it served just as plain Italian ice or with custard. The custard adds a creamy “ice cream” texture to the Italian Ice and is a favorite for my two boys, but not my daughter who likes to keep it traditional. If your kids cannot decide on just one flavor then they can combine flavors too.
After getting your Italian ice, your family can enjoy it inside of the restaurant or outside at one of the patio tables. Whether you’re celebrating, cheering someone up or just enjoying life…everyday is the perfect day to visit Rita’s Italian Ice. I guarantee that after just one visit you’ll find yourself coming back for more again and again.
Rita’s Italian Ice is located on the second floor of the Kaleidoscope Shopping Center at 27741 Crown Valley Parkway in Mission Viejo.
