Trying to find Italian Ice in the South Bay or Westside?

My 3 year old son has a dairy allergy and we recently had some Italian Ice while out of town. He loves the consistency much better than sorbets. I'm trying to search for Italian Ice locally (via Google), but it doesn't seem like there are any places in the South Bay that serve it. Do any of you know any place in the area that might serve Italian Ice? We live in the Lomita/Torrance area. I also work in the Westside so If there are any suggestions for this area I would gladly take them as well. Thanks!

  1. In Santa Monica, you will find GREAT Italian Ices at a place called "DiDio's Italian Ice." They have a rotation of over 40 flavors.
    DiDio's Italian Ice / (310) 393-2788

      And if you ever get down to Disneyland there's a place called Joe's Italian Ice on the east side of Harbor Blvd. between Chapman and Lampson in Garden Grove.

      Also, several of the local farmers' markets have started sprouting Italian ice carts.

    2. There is the new Del's Lemonade on Lincoln in Venice, just South of the Whole Foods.


        They sell it in 1.5 gal or 36 single serving packs... Flavors include: Blue Raspberry, Cherry, Creamsicle, Sour Apple, Mango, Chocolate, Lemon and Pina Colada
