My husband and I both really enjoyed the ice cream. I had the fresh mint and it was very refreshing. He had the peanut butter ice cream and loved it. It wasn't too expensive. Definitely a great place for fresh and tasty ice cream!

I was enjoying a scoop after 10 years and it is as good as ever. I had the khulfi which is what I have at Toscanini as well and Toscanini has a slight edge.

Another Cambridge gem located on Cambridge street, a street filled with restaurants and bars. Exotic flavors keep the locals coming back for more. Small place where the customers come first. Try the coffee oreo.

Homemade! Not, Richardson's homemade, (SO many places 'round here claim homemade then, the Richardson's truck pulls up) the real thing. It's creamy and rich tasting it's got no aftertaste or saltiness to it...flavors are endless. I'm a weird flavor kinda girl. Christina's has ginger, bean,...More

While not as popular as the famed Toscanini's nearby, this place is just as good. As it is always the case, chocolate flavor is the best.flavor.

Flavors are not your typical offerings which is nice. High quality and very rich. Yogurt is better than the ice cream. Staff is friendly.

Christina's always has unique flavors and great quality ice cream! Good to visit once- I now go much less often since their prices have skyrocketed.

Ice cream ice cream ice cream. That's what it's about and they do it to perfection. And everybody goes. Slightly sticky tables.

I love Christina's. It features a really large variation of flavours (with many creative choices) that are actually good. I also love that they are not too heavy (at least if you get the small portions) and that it's very affordable.
