Who We Are / Our History

Our founders, Stefano and Paola Cacciola, created Dolce Vita Gelato because it was so difficult for them to find the same delicious tasting dessert that they so often experienced when traveling to Italy. Gelato has been enjoyed by Italians for over 400 years for its creamy smooth texture, all natural ingredients and intense flavors that burst in your mouth. Dolce Vita Gelato is committed to keep ing the same Italian tradition alive through the preparation, presentation and serving of our gelato. We create handmade, artisan-style gelato and sorbetto for the finest restaurants, bakeries, and markets in the area. We use only the freshest imported Italian fruits and nuts, and because we are a family-run business, we produce only small quantities that are freshly made, packed and distributed by, yes, you guessed it, our family. Dolce Vita Gelato represents out passion and love for family, food and the enjoyment of life - the fundamentals of what it means to be Italian and to truly live a "bella vita", or as we like to say, a "Dolce Vita".
