Toscanini’s (or Tosci to the cognoscenti) is part of a very special community. A partial list of groups that we regularly donate to includes the Mid-Cambridge Neighborhood Association, Union Baptist Church, Area 4 Youth Center, the Brattle Theatre Foundation, the Secret Gardens of Cambridge Tour, every Cambridge school, Broadway Bicycle’s annual birthday party and many groups at Harvard and MIT.

The New York Times wrote that Toscanini’s was deemed “the world’s best ice cream.” People Magazine said that we had the best vanilla ice cream in the US. Since 1981 we have been known for often unique and wonderful ice cream flavors as well as our weekend Breakfast@TheBigTable. Toscanini’s attracts customers from all over. Bon Appetit, Boston Magazine, Gourmet and USA Today have all written nice things. The Atlantic Monthly published a long article about the accidental creation of one of our most popular flavors: Burnt Caramel.

We take our ice creams, coffees and teas seriously, as do our customers. All of us at Tosci appreciate your support.

Thanks to owner Gus Rancatore, an ice cream flavor known as B3--which stands for brown butter, brown sugar and brownie--now exists in the world. The B3 alone is enough to get us to pay this Cambridge stalwart a visit, but we also can't help but tack on a scoop of other quirky flavors like Earl Grey.
