Mario's Italian Lemonade, the hole-in-the-wall joint on West Taylor street, scoops up some of the best versions of the popular ice treat in town. The dessert is comprised of intricately shaved ice and chunks of fresh fruits drizzled with sumptuous syrups, almost like a slushie. It comes in an array of seasonal flavors like cherry, blue raspberry, lime, orange, peach, watermelon and so on. Also on offer are delicious cocktail renditions like pina colada and the all-time favorite chocolate. The generous portions at affordable rates make it a popular niche in Little Italy.
