We often come here after lunch or dinner. Rancatore's is one of the great ice cream places of New England. Clean, good and often cheerful service. Excellent selection of flavors and really, really yummy. We especially like the Indian specialty, kulfi.

Wanted something sweet after my dinner. Quaint little town, great ice cream, friendly service for an out of towner even though the place was slammed. I'm picky about Ice cream and can't complain!

Lots of flavors. Always fresh. Friendly help - mostly high school and college students. An institution in town. We need more independent shops in Lexington! Please support Rancatore's!
