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.

What's not to like about this great little place (except maybe that it's only open during the summer months)? It's pretty plain looking but you go there for the outstanding flavors of Italian ice. Lemon and almond are probably my favorites but almost all of the flavors are delicious--not too sweet--just refreshing. And the staff are always hospitable. Vecchittos is... More

We frequent Vecchittos pretty regularly during the summer! Their italian ice is fantastic! This is the epitome of a great "hole in the wall" family-run specialty shop. No wonder they've stayed in business for so long! All the flavors are great, but we love the watermelon, root beer, cherry, almond and of course lemon.

Best kept secret in middletown! Great Italian Ice. I don't think they stay open in the winter months but definitely worth a visit on hot days.

I try to make it here every summer. Not much to say other than this place serves up great Italian ice. They have a few flavors but lemon is my favorite.

Vecchitto's lemon ice is the BEST I have ever tasted. It is a no frills operation and so the concentration is making the most delicious italian ice in the state.
