GELATO
Gelato
Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream and sorbet. However, this tasty frozen treat is in fact a lighter alternative to American ice cream. Here at Villa Italia, you will always enjoy the freshest flavors and the smoothest gelato. Come in and try our coffee, vanilla, stracciatella, hazelnut, or one of our other fabulous flavors
