I love de Vivo - they have a small but excellent range of icecreams, the taste of which is unmatched IMO (with the exception of the shop with 72 flavours of icecream located in Rome). I dont think anyone can beat their melon icecream. I can say the same for their pastries and cakes and they make the best torte caprese I have ever eaten. What many people dont know is that they stock some of the best (and not very expensive) wines from the Campanian region and I dont think I have ever purchased a bottle that was average. They are open from 5.30 am to 12.30 am.

As they say the best icecream in town. I must admit is was very good although GROM in Florence tops it all. Nice place, THe only thing was the bad service. As we got in line for our icecream, the lady behind the counter did her very best to look right trough us and helped every other "local" customer before getting to us " tourists".

If you go to Pompeii use the less busy Piazza Anfiteatro entrance. About 100 yards away is this excellent cake and ice cream shop, way better than anything you will get in the site itself. Just the place to restore oneself with coffee, pastries and a wide range of truly exceptional home made ice-creams.

Having visited the Pompei ruins and strolling down the main street my wife and I decided to find some refreshment.

The Pasticceria De Vivo is what class should be. Elegant design and atmosphere pastries to die for and the caffe (espresso) wonderful.

Recommend a visit for anyone having some time left after a long day.
