One of my favorite Gelato companies
The story of Villa Dolce Gelato began with the idea of three brothers bringing Italy's finest dessert gelato to the United States. The Marcaccinis, who were raised in Rome but are Los Angeles natives, wanted to share something that had brought them so much joy growing up in Italy here to the U.S.
To make the product as authentic and as close to what is made in Italy as possible the Marcaccinis began by pursuing Nino Ferrore, one of Italy's premier gelato makers from Rome's Il Gelatone. The Marcaccini brothers convinced Nino to come to Los Angeles and share his 40 years of gelato knowledge with them. They began by importing all their gelato equipment from Italy. Along with gelato equipment they also imported many of the natural ingredients that are used to make gelato such as Italian classics: Hazelnut, Bacio, and Tiramisu.
Villa Dolce Gelato opened its doors for business early 2001 by servicing local restaurants and hotels in the Los Angeles area. Many of L.A. Top Chefs were excited about getting a unique product that was made fresh with natural ingredients. Customers enjoyed having fresh seasonal sorbets "Tastes better than the gelato I ate in Italy" many customers would say.
