V-ice Gelateria To Open in Central Rome

Less than a month ago, I wrote that central Rome has few really high quality gelato shops. I think I can now eat my words after the opening of Fatamorgana in Piazza degli Zingari and the imminent arrival of Fabio D’Angelantonio’s V-ice near Largo Argentina, which is set to open in a couple of weeks. The original V-ice shop is on via Gregorio VII 385, a 10-minute bus ride from St Peter’s Basilica. The central location is more than welcome, as is a third branch in Viale Marconi.

D’Angelantonio’s flavors are some of the cleanest around and the gelato has an unparalleled creaminess that somehow manages to be extraordinarily light. The ingredients are all-natural and flavors are made without preservatives or added colorings. Fresh fruits, spring water, and sugar are all that are used in the sorbets. The gelato is made with organic milk, fresh eggs, and high quality ingredients (pistachios from Bronte, hazelnuts from Alba, lemons from Amalfi, and almonds from Noto, just to name a few). The chocolate is sourced from Amedei, Domori, and Valrhona. V-ice even makes interesting flavors like mushroom, salmon, and olive oil, which are served at their savory happy hours.

    Great news! Where is it opening exactly? The center is getting better and better for ice cream lately. I wonder if this has to do with the crisis, and the fact that commercial rents are finally coming down a bit from their ridiculous highs.

    it is opening on the south side of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II just before largo argentina. there must be something going on with real estate these days since there are so many new openings in the center. why won’t this trickle down to the residential housing market?

    Oh, if only it were opening sooner! I fear I will miss it on my too-short stay on June 30/July 1!!

    This is indeed welcome news. Now there is no excuse for people to go to all the god awful places like Giolitti because they are central.

  6. […] You can find Vice Cafè at Via Fabio Massimo 64 in Prati. The other Vice locations are on Via Gregorio VII 385 , Viale Marconi 207, and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II 96. […]
