Baklava and Vanilla/blueberry gelato at Fata Morgana, Rome

Gelateria Fata Morgana, a place that is near and dear to my heart (that is, has clogged my arteries) has closed its doors on Via Ostiense. The sad news came to me via email from reader Chad Rivera. I stopped by ex-Fata Morgana yesterday to pay my respects and a new gelateria had cropped up in its place. The new joint is called Gelatiamo, which I will call Gelatiodio in an attempt to lighten my mood on this very sad day. Fortunately, the Via Lago di Lesina 9 (Quartiere Africano) and Via G. Bettolo 7 (Prati) locations are still going strong.

While I did not try the gelato at Gelatiamo, I did enquire about their production and was informed they are gluten free and make traditional flavors.
