Decent ice cream. Definitely overrated. Will not allow you to taste to see if you like the flavor or even if it is fresh. MUST pay before getting your order. Almost have to beg for more than one napkin. I'll go to Princeton to get great ice cream at the Bent Spoon or Halo Pub.

In my opinion, best soft serve. Consistency is the key to success and Magnificos is a model of consistency. Great birthday cakes and much better than mass produced Carvel or Baskin Robin's. Better value and always fresh.

Family owned and operated soft ice cream operation right on route 18 and milltown road. Clean, well staffed and courteous. Great price and good quantity. Well worth stopping by this seasonal landmark

Magnifico's sells great ice cream products, but they can be a bit pricey for a large group. Great summer cool down!

Stopped for a treat while staying local for a dog event. Really interesting spot with such a great variety it's hard to choose!!! My husband had the pumpkin ice cream and I had water ice. A-M-A-Z-i-N-G!!!! Great taste and texture for both!! We enjoyed it so much we stopped the next afternoon before heading back home. Wish we lived closer!!

They only serve soft serve ice cream here. You must pay with cash only. They have many different menu items to choose from including fat free, sugar free. There is usually a crowd.

I don't know how anyone could rate this less then 5 stars. Ice cream now a days is big companies not these guys. Mom and Pop all the way. I have been coming here since I was a child which was 30 years ago and they are still around and thriving. During the summertime they get absolutely PACKED. The line... More

Do not order a cone here because it melts before you have a chance to finish it. It ends up all over your hands and then you need a lot of napkins for cleanup. You might be better if with a cup.
