Vecchitto's is a little place that sits in not the greatest part of town, right along the highway (easy on and off!). They've been open every summer ever since I can remember, and I'm not young! They only do one thing ... Italian Ice (and recently gelato), and they do it perfectly. The standard flavor is lemon, and I would... More

While Vecchitto's is more convenient by far, Libby's is head and shoulders (and knees and toes) above as far as amazing Italian Ice! Thanks for being a long time business in the area, Vecchitto's, but once you've had Libby's, there's really no other. Sorry!

Vecchitto's has been making Lemon Ices (and many other flavors) since the 1930s. The texture is smoooooth and the flavors delicious. The recipes have been handed down thru the generations. Seasonal locations in Middletown, CT and Old Lyme, CT. I've been enjoying them for more than 60 years!

Vecchitto's has been a landmark in Middletown for so many years ( 50 at least)-you have got to check out this tiny gem to see the great Authentic Italian Ices they have to offer

We always look forward to their opening for the season each year and are sad when the season is over. They have the best Italian ice - so smooth and tasty! They always have a nice offering of flavors - some of our favorites are: watermelon, root ever, and their almond flavor is amazing! Great family treat, especially on a... More

No Italian ice I've ever had compares to Vecchitto's. The flavor and texture are perfection. The parking is a bit tricky, but there's a public lot well within walking distance. This place is SO worth it. The watermelon is my favorite of their regular flavors, but if they have mango (and you're at least reasonable fond of mangoes) GET IT!... More

Best Italian ice I've ever had. The kids would beg us every summer to take them to Vecchitto's. They always have a great choice of flavors!

Family run for generations with the best assortment of italian ice and gelato flavors. Open only in the summer is its only downfall.
