A gelato staple in Rome, Fatamorgana has opened up its first location in North America. Located in Studio City and minutes away from the Upper School, Fatamorgana has over 300 recipes, 60 of which are on display every single day. Some flavors are dairy-, gluten- or egg-free. Their delicious gelatos are not only healthy, but they taste amazing. The flavors vary from prickly pear and passion fruit to over 10 different varieties of chocolate. Fruit flavors such as raspberry and mamey, a tropical fruit, are sweet and light yet tangy and creamy.
Must try flavors also include the basil, passion fruit and Madagascar chocolate gelatos. Customers are able to watch all of the gelatos and meringues being made through the glass window of the shop. The shop also offers sushi and cake made out of gelato. The indoor ambience inside is sophisticated, and the shelves inside are stocked with Italian goods such as soda and hazelnuts. Two scoops of gelato cost $5.50, while nine scoops cost $9.70. The people of Los Angeles are now able to experience the famous gelato of Rome.
