Good little Gelato Shop in Great Location

Good selection. Helpful service. If you can’t make up your mind they have a sampler you can get with (7) different flavors. If you get more than one flavor in a bowl, our experience was that they put one flavor on top of the other. Other gelato places have put them side by side which is nice if... read more

Splendora's has lots of flavors of gelato, sorbet and espresso drinks...the hard part is choosing. With 9 non-dairy sorbets, I was in heaven, I loved both the peach bellini and the lemon sorbets. Hubby had his favorite, vanilla, and pronounced it excellent.

I love the pistachio gelato and I have loved it for years. It hasn't changed and I get it each time I am town! The staff is kind and efficient and the location is conveniently located on the downtown mall. If you try their gelato I don't think you will be disappointed.

It's always nice to find a shop that uses high quality all natural ingredients. The dairy free sorbet was awesome! !

Splendora's has been around for many years, and still manages to impress. The gelato and sorbetto is fresh, and the staff is always helpful. The prices are average for gelato, and the coffee is good. If you want a cold treat while visiting the downtown mall, go here.

Splendoras has great Gelato. If you're visiting Charlottesville I recommend because it's downtown, so you can walk around or go shopping too. Try the palette if you're not sure what to get, I think you can get eight different flavors and it's cheaper than buying the whole family their own serving. Comfortable café style seating with a colorful interior and... More

This ice cream shop is delicious and full of fun unique flavors. After a meal on the downtown mall we always stop at Splendoras for ice cream.

Tastes very much like the real thing in Italy. They have captured both texture and flavor. Great selection of flavors. I love to indulge in the sampler, where you get to choose six mini portions.

Stopped in at Spendora's, with the two grandchildren for a bit of a treat, mint choc chip gelato on a bambino cone for all, it hit the spot!
