Hello Angels,

Grattachecca season has arrived.

The grattachecca is a refreshing dessert type originating in Rome. It has similarities with Sicilian granita.

Grattachecca is made with shaved ice, sugar and various flavours such as fruit or coffee.

Many Romans consume it during summer. There is no better refreshing treat than a grattachecca on a hot summer day in Rome. If I am at outside, I prefer grattachecca instead of gelato because gelato melts instantly and I can’t eat comfortable.

You can buy grattachecca from street kioks or gelaterias. In today’s post, I would like to share the best places to buy this delicious Roman dessert.
