Best Italian Ice: Vecchitto's, Middletown & Old Lyme In 1930, Gaettano Vecchitto, along with his wife Giuvanina, opened a small grocery store in Middletown, and decided to make Italian ice, which soon became a neighborhood hit. Eighty-two years later, the grocery store is gone but Vecchitto family’s frozen treat is still a hit. Gaettano and Giuvanina's 11 children and their children still welcome droves of fans to their shops in Middletown and Old Lyme. Photo by Jeff Kaufman
