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.

Authentic Italian ice joint. Almond and Lemon are the go-to choices. Old fashioned stand. Great treat. Only gripe is they are stingy with the napkins - you have to beg for an additional one.

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
