All of the ingredients in the gelato are organic, all of the time. The gelato is house-made, as well as the ice cream syrups. Vegan, gluten free, and sugar free options are available. The sandwiches and baked goods are not organic but are free of artificial ingredients and preservatives. The dairy milk is organic, but on the day of our visit, the cartoned nut milks were not. The whipped cream is organic as well as the nuts that are caramelized in house as well.
48 varieties of house-made gelato as well as milkshakes, smoothies, a few sandwiches, and locally baked desserts.
What I Ordered
I ordered a Sundae with scoops of Mint Chocolate Chip and Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream. Chosen toppings were the house made chocolate sauce, organic whipped cream, and caramelized organic nuts. The nut medley of pecans, hazelnuts, and peanuts are also carmelized in house. The gelato was smooth and creamy and quite flavorful.
Just a few tables and chairs are provided indoors where the decor is clean and simple. However, many tables await under covered roof on the open-air patio in front of the store.
Made in Rome Organic Gelato is a hidden gem in the Siesta Key downtown area. The owners are from Rome and despise artificial ingredients. Kudos as well for using sustainable and compostable plates and bowls. Family owned and operated, stop by for an ice cream treat and relax on the covered front patio. They do things right, amazing tasting and super clean gelato close to one of the best beaches in the US.
