Hands down this is the best place for Italian Ice. It is a little hole in the wall place off the beaten path.. I have been to many Italian bakeries on the Avenue for Italian ice and they don't hold a candle to Vecchitto's. They offer about 10+ flavors (I had the lemon), they serve it in an old fashioned...

A MUST on a summer day to grab an authentic italian ice offered in about 10 flavors. My fav is Almond! Served in a basic paper cup inside old shool shop (hasnt been updated inside in probably 50 years). Doesn't get more authentic that this! Sometimes few gelato seletions too like last night there was pistachio and almond. Yum! I... More

We happened to drive buy and see this place, I did a little checking and we came back the next day. We tried the lemon and the watermelon. We both liked the lemon better. Fun stop on a hot day!

This is the best treat on a hot summer day. Their Lemon Ice is incredible, but I have heard that the Grape and Lemon/Lime are also amazing. We moved away from CT and I really missed Vecchitto's on this 4th of July weekend.

I wish they were open every day of the year! Waiting for the family to open for summer business is always exciting. Brings me back to my childhood instantly. Love the authentic paper cone cups and the vintage feeling. The neighborhood is FINE. Middletown's north end is a far safer place than most main streets in New Haven. Don't let... More

This place has the best Italian Ice you will ever have. I've been to two of the locations and it's the same great product at both. It's just too bad you can't get it year round!!

This is a summer staple, it's been in their family for decades, and it's just like you remember from when you were a kid - fluted paper cups, chest freezers, nice people.

This place is truly worthy of the Webster's definition for "Italian Ice". Growing up, I remember my parents taking us there as a family and how excited we would get. As I got older and traveled further from home to try different versions of "Italian Ice", I began to realize how lucky I had been to grow up with Vecchitto's... More

There is no better Italian ice in CT but Vecchitto's. I've had it at several locations on Franklin Ave Hartford and nothing can top it. Give it a try - a bit pricey but worth it. Great flavors too. Love the root beer and watermelon.
