I’ve eaten many dishes of gelato throughout Italy for years. Today, I ate a Blue Ice with friends. This gelato is the real deal. Most excellent. Fresh, creamy, flavorful, generous serving, absolutely Fantastico!


Met my friend there and we got to taste the NEW Watermelon! Oh My…. Think of all the delicious watermelon flavor without all the watermelon mess…. Gotta Try it!

The flavors are intense and higher quality ingredients can be discerned. We will drive past other places to go there. Fresh!

Wow! Tried Blue Ice Gelato for first time today. It’s amazing, fresh, rich Gelato. Lots of unique flavors!
We sampled so many it was hard to choose. Blueberry, butter pecan, pumpkin, banana chocolate, real mint……all made with real ingredients. We like Frost Gelato, but Blue Ice tastes more authentic. It is our new “go to” place for gelato and sorbet in Tucson. The watermelon sorbet was superb (it was the only one I sampled and I can’t get it out of my head….will be back there tomorrow to get full serving). Num, num!

Best gelato I ever had. The owner is a great guy, he offered all the flavors he had and explained everything about it.
I would highly recommend this place.

I visit this location at least a few times a month. They have #Vegan options as well. Their flavors are always changing and Don does a fantastic job of serving his customers.

I’ve never been a huge gelato fan. When I think about traveling to Italy one day, getting gelato isn’t exactly on my to do list. Anyway, I went to Blue Ice Gelato last night because my boyfriend has been raving about their gelato for weeks. I also went back today, less than 24 hours later. So am I a gelato fan now? No, but I’m a Blue Ice Gelato fan.

One thing that really stands out about this place (besides the mouth watering gelato) is the service. Don, the manager, is so warm and personable, and you can tell he is really passionate about what he does. He is always eager to get you to sample different gelatos and tell you about new flavors.

Blue Ice offers over 15 flavors of gelato (in a cup, waffle cone, or panini), but they also have sorbetto, granita, expresso, cappuccino, and lattes. Don also mentioned that they now have gelato pies! A whole pie of your favorite gelato with your choice of pie crust and topping? Ok, someone please get me one for my birthday...or just because.

I feel like I need to dedicate a whole section to the cookie butter gelato. I sampled many wonderful flavors both times I went, but I got cookie butter each time. I believe they said cookie butter is their best seller, and I’m telling you, IT IS GOOD. I don’t really know how to explain it, it’s like a smooth vanilla caramel gelato with this cookie crunch that tastes like peanut butter, caramel, and Biscotti cookies. It’s simply the perfect blend. I can literally taste the freshness of their gelatos. I sampled a banana cream pie gelato and I felt like I was on a banana farm on a warm, sunny day eating the freshest bananas I’ve ever had.

This place is truly great. The place is always clean and cheerful, and you have the option to enjoy your gelato inside or outside. Service is phenomenal and prices are very reasonable for truly fresh and good gelato. I would give this place 6 stars if I could.

This man and his shop are over and beyond. I cannot rave enough about him and his Gelato. Hes passionate about what he does and its contagious. I've travelled all over the world and I can safely say. with no qualms, that this is the best gelato I've ever had. His Stracciatella springs me back to my childhood with one taste. It's hard to choose a flavor because they're all yummy!

Best gelato I've had. Sampled several flavors and they are all sooo good it was hard to pick. I had the yogurt flavor on their homemade waffle cone. It was delicious!! Can't wait to go back.
