Dolce Vita – Villa Armando: Gelato from the garage?

Dolce Vita – Villa Armando: Gelato from the garage?

While driving by TMR, Mr.Butter and I have noticed this very cute house in TMR that seemed to be serving cafe and ice cream. But at that time, it was closed for Autumn. We said that we would come back in summer.

And summer arrives and coincidentally, we passed by this location again. And this time, it was opened. Dolce Vita is right beside Villa Armando, the main house which is now converted to an Italian restaurant. Dolce Vita was basically a garage converted to a nice ice cream parlour.

There were many selections of gelato in Dolce Vita, many that are unheard of. Like usual, it was very difficult to choose.

In the end, I had orange and fleur de sel caramel. I’ve been very fond of anything with fleur de sel and caramel.

I chose orange simply because I wanted to know how it was different from orange sorbet. To say the least, it wasn’t much different. I should have gone for a more wild flavour.


The fleur de sel caramel was good, exactly what I was expecting.

The price at Dolce Vita is fairly comparable to other gelato places. As for the taste, it was satisfying but I would not go out of my way to get my gelato there. It’s perfect for residents living nearby.
