Belmont >Rancatore Ice Cream--RELOCATED
Great Ice cream. All of the flavors are great. The staff are friendly and make Belmont feel like a small town! I am definitely lucky to live so close to a great ice cream institution...
Belmont’s gourmet scoop shop ranks high among the Hub’s best. Rancatore's royally rich ice creams rotate through 50 different flavors, and its popular frozen yogurts number about a dozen. But there’s nothing wacky or gimmicky in the embarrassment of choice; instead, keen attention to the ingredients makes the unassuming storefront a connoisseur of classics. For example, smooth milk chocolate is made with creamy Callebaut, and cookies and cream has the superior crispiness of Hydrox cookies. The sundaes get the crafted treatment, too, with intensely chocolaty fudge sauce among the fixings. Otherwise, it’s a neighborhood dessert parlor with scattered newspapers and a bulletin board, and decor that nods to classic soda fountains, but without over-the-top retro appeal.
Best Ice Cream in Town.
I consider myself lucky to live so close to Ranc's, every flavor is delicious. The atmosphere is fun, friendly and colorful. Their service is quick and portions generous; It definitely outshines large chains in flavor and quality.
Try the Cake Batter, Gingersnap Molasses and Hydrox cookie flavors.
Frozen yogurt is unappealing. We try to eat a low fat diet, but Rancatore's frozen yogurt didn't satisfy. Low fat it might be, but lack of flavor and and icy texture made it very unappealing.
