Bringing Ice Custard Happiness to Honolulu, HI!

In 1984, Bob Tumolo, a former Philadelphia firefighter, began serving Italian ice from a small porch window during that sweltering summer, naming the business after his wife. Since then, Rita’s Italian Ice Custard has grown to offer the freshest, highest quality Hawaiian desserts, including:

  • Classic Italian ice
  • Cream ice
  • Sugar-free Italian ice
  • Frozen custard
  • Sundaes
  • Gelato
  • Misto®
  • Blendini® milkshakes
  • Custard cookie sandwiches
  • Frozen custard cakes
  • And more!

You can also choose from more than 20 toppings to make your frozen treat even tastier! At Rita’s Italian Ice Custard, we believe your visit should be something special. With the freshest, highest quality treats, we give you a chance to escape the pressures of everyday life, take a moment for yourself, and enjoy some delicious happiness.

Locally owned and operated in Honolulu

While Rita’s Italian Ice is a national chain, we are locally owned and operated. The beloved Italian ice and ice cream store is now expanding to the Hawaiian Islands, thanks to the dedication and excitement of two local entrepreneurs.

Best of all, all ices and other treats are made fresh right here in Honolulu.
