I found Fatamorgana by fluke 1 year ago. I was on a desperate search for gelato I could eat, since I was so tempted by the copious amounts of gelato being eaten around me. Fatamorgana’s gluten free sign outside their restaurant caught my eye and I’ve been going there since.

The gelato at Fatamorgana is a little different than the other gelateria’s I have recommended, in the sense that these vegan gelato flavors are not soy based. Instead, they are water based. They still offer a wide variety of flavors such as chocolate orange, banana lime, almond apple cinnamon, etc. The flavors are really tasty and not as rich and heavy as those made from a soy base. 

Il Margutta

Il Margutta is a vegetarian fine dining restaurant. Located near the Piazza del Popolo, Il Margutta offers a more fancy night out for those who would like that. Reservations are preferred, as it typically gets very busy for dinner. Important to note is that the restaurant does close from the hours of 3-7 pm, so this is not the place for a mid-afternoon snack.

My experience at Il Margutta was enjoyable, although not anything to write home to mom about. I was seated outside in a little serene patio, blocked off from the main road by bushes. It reminded me of a stereotypical Italian scene that you’d see in a movie – and I loved it. 

The service at Il Margutta was good; the servers were very attentive and checked on me frequently. I had a couple questions about menu ingredients and the server was nice enough to go check with the chef to clarify.

Il Gelatone is perfection. For the second time in Rome, I have found a plethora of soy based gelato and I could not be more thrilled. This gelateria had so many flavors, I had to try them all. Only once my hands were overflowing with mini spoons, did I settle on 2 flavors: hazelnut and raspberry. Of course, I went with a gluten free cone – which surprisingly is much more common in Rome than I expected!

In soy flavors, Il Gelatino has cappuccino, chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla and more. In fruit flavors, there are more than I could possibly go through, but my favourites are raspberry, blackberry and mango.

My gelato was delicious. It melted fast in the scorching Rome heat, but it was a lovely, refreshing treat. There’s something about walking the ancient streets of Rome licking your Italian gelato. One word: perfetto.
