Delicious Gelato, nice range of flavours and high quality. It is the place to go when you are in Indigo. It is a very appreciated change from the ice cream/coffee shop you find everywhere in Beijing.

Their ice cream is amazing. Absolutely delicious. If you have time I really suggest asking them to make a milkshake with the mint chocolate chip gelato. It's super delicious.

My daughters had chocolate ice-cream, my wife ordered vanilla flavor and I had a cup of coffee. All food was very tasty, my wife said that the ice-cream was as... More

This place seems to have very good review, so I went there with high expectation. I tried their pistachio gelato and it was not bad (but def not the best I've had...), but that was after I asked for two other my favorite flavors (hazelnut and banana), which were both listed on their menu but weren't served that day... Maybe... More

A friend recommended it and although it took a while to find it (as their Solana shop was closed and they only had a small ice cream stand outside), it was definitely worth spending time looking for it. I think it might just be the best ice cream in Beijing! Will definitely go again and again and again!

The Italian ice-cream (“Gelato”) represents the essence of the Italian lifestyle, “la Dolce Vita”, whilst Chocolate is an indulgence that no woman or man can resist. Fresh, natural, nutritious and healthy, the Gelato epitomises a certain “art de vivre”. From the little “bambini” (children), to parents, and grand-parents, it brings together family, friends and lovers around an ultimate pleasurable moment. More than an ice-cream, it is an “Experience”. At VAI Milano, we aim to bring this pleasurable experience to people and communities, wherever there may be. For this, we bring the know-how and experience of professional artisan gelato-makers to the doorsteps of our clienteles, and source the best possible ingredients to achieve a superior ice-cream, a perfect blend of high-quality ingredients & Italian know-how.Our production is localised in a centralised laboratory on-site, to ensure a strict quality control standard, as well as best-in-class health & hygiene conditions. Moreover, our laboratory is designed to enable the scalability of the typical artisanal production method of Italian gelato-masters, to provide our stores with a truly superior product with exquisite taste. More than a Brand, VAI is a Concept. VAI’s origins are unmistakably from one of the most fashionable cities in the world, Milan. Through our stores, we seek to bring a fashionable, easy-going, convivial European lifestyle, centred on a concept of energy, dynamism and perpetual innovation.VAI Milano aspires to bring its Concept worldwide, whilst providing its customers with a distinctive lifestyle experience through our stores imagery, music and stylish appearance.
