At Va da Vie Gelato we are excited to bring fresh, quality Gelato and Sorbet to Charlotte and offer you an enjoyable, friendly experience.To explain a little bit, gelato simply means “frozen” in Italian, but does not simply mean “ice cream”. It has more flavor, improved taste, lower milk fat content, and less air whipped in than ice cream.Stated another way, gelato is like a more dense luxury treat that is packed with fresh flavors. Our Gelato and Sorbet will be offered in traditional flavors, as well as fruit flavors that change with the seasons. The intense flavors and colors are from wholesome fruit, nuts, and other ingredients; we never use artificial sweeteners, chemicals or colors. We believe fresh, pure ingredients and attention to detail is the standard of excellence that our customers deserve. At various times throughout the day we welcome you to watch the intriguing process that magically churns the liquid into a frozen delight.
