Domenico Maurici has been around food his whole life. He was a child when he started farming his family's land in the south of Italy. And as a teenager, he started working in hotels and restaurants, working almost every food-oriented job there is: server, bartender, cook, the guy who keeps knives sharp with other knives or with hubcaps. A degree from a culinary institute propelled Domenico into fine hotels and restaurants, and eventually he took to the seas by slicing and searing in a cruise ship kitchen. One day, the ship docked in Orange County, and Domenico enjoyed the area so much that he never left. In 1994, he opened Il Farro Restaurant, which was soon followed by Il Gelato Caffe. At Il Gelato, omelets and panini share a menu with pastries and the titular frozen treat. Domenico even differentiates gelato, with its dense flavor and lower fat content, from standard American ice cream in a website post.

Tutti Frutti’s self-serve yogurt ($0.37 per ounce) represents a healthy and delectable alternative to heavy ice cream and deep-fried sticks of butter. Get your fruit fix with tart flavors such as pomegranate, acai berry, and the aromatic lychee, or opt for something on the creamy side. Cappuccino diehards will scramble to sample its yogurt counterpart, and pistachio’s distinctive flavor will bring back memories of that magical summer spent toiling on a Turkmenistan pistachio farm. Finally, adorn your edible artwork with a sprinkling of some of Tutti Frutti's delectable toppings.
