You can find Italian ice at any number of places around the city, but Mario’s distinct style, which includes actual bits of lemon rind, delivers a special puckery note. You’ll find standby flavors like cherry or strawberry, but go for the specials, which change regularly and are listed on hand-painted signs. Those specials are often loaded with fresh fruit, like peach and mango. So is the refreshing fruit cocktail flavor, which has apples, pears, cantaloupe, oranges, grapes, and bananas — and the advantage of almost always being available. From $3; 1068 W. Taylor St., Little Italy
