We got coupons for buy one, get one free up to $6. There's no way to say no to that. Lots of awesome flavors to choose from and they are great about accommodating food allergies.

Great local ice cream shop with delicious hand-scoop flavors. I definitely recommend their Bittersweet Chocolate in a pretzel cone and my wife loved their mango. Worth the visit to lexington alone!

Rancatore's is a great ice cream place, from the many unique house flavors to the friendly service and management. Try the Cocoa Joel. It is simply awesome and Joel was a genius to invent it. Nice to see management that treats the kids who work there well and it shows in the quality and sincerity of the service. Have been... More

This place is perfection. They have enough flavors to please your adult palate and keep the kids happy. You will be delighted. Why you say? Well, I remember the owner when he was working with his brother at Toscanini's. Though I moved away from the area, I make a beeline for this place when I am in town. My favorites... More

1st time I ever had kulfi ice cream outside of an Indian restaurant. Not quite the same but very tasty. Coffee, bittersweet chocolate & hydro yogurt also hit the spot.

Very friendly service. Many flavors of ice cream that included one with cardamom! Small dishes and micro dishes are available. Nice place to stop while walking around the charming town center.

Excellent ice cream. Premium prices in Lexington and Belmont. Very popular. High quality. I know they use fresh ingredients and make all their own ice cream at a central facility.

"rancs LOVE!" These two words have come to define who we are as a company and as member of our communities. "rancs LOVE" defines how we treat our team of local kids, our partners and our guests. "rancs LOVE' is what goes into every cup, cone, cake and coffee we make. "rancs LOVE" is that beacon in the sky that drives us to constantly improve, to make great ice cream and to bring happiness to your day. "rancs LOVE" drips down the side of the cone and we scrape every last drop out of those cool lime green cups. "rancs LOVE" is that slurping empty straw sound we all dread. come by and see "rancs LOVE" for yourself
