Ritas is in a small plaza overlooking long island sound. Few seats for indoor seating, but mostly treats to go. Italian ice and custard style ice cream, get one, or combine both in one of Ritas favorite treat cups

We stopped in after we had dinner next door. It was a fantastic treat!! I had the custard twist, chocolate and vanilla. Then we sat across the street on the beach to enjoy our treat!!! You must stop and try this place!!

Love the Gelati with vanilla custard and Swedish fish Italian ice. The flavors are excellent. The mixture of creamy custard with refreshing flavored ice is perfect for Spring/Summer. Take a walk on the beach directly across the street.

Great selection of ices. Only drawback is not easily accessible, though nice to relax with a treat looking at the ocean. Similar to all Ritas quality.
