Delicious gelato, just like Italy. Instead of stuffing your face with a pint of fattening American ice cream, have a small cup of this delicious frozen Italian treat! There's a piano in the shop you're welcome to play if you like, and they have punch cards to earn a free dessert! Very fun, and open late!

Sampled several of their homemade tasty tubs of gelato and settled with toasted almond and peanut butter cup. Every flavor was delicious.

Once you experience the Split Banana's gelato you will wonder why there aren't more places making and serving gelato in the United States. It has all the taste and texture our our typical high fat ice cream, but in reality it only has about a third of the fat. The flavors selection was great. The staff was friendly and patient.... More

Each time we visit, we are surprised by how good the new gelato flavored tastes. We recently returned from an Italian holiday and this comes real close to the gelato we had in Florence. The new Brownie Blast was awesome. Try their hot chocolate, you will not drink any other.

The gelato is great and made in house. The folks working the counter are friendly and helpful. Try the pistachio!

We went here after a dinner for dessert. They were friendly and we each had them suggest something unusual. I had a float with peppermint ice cream and a soda. It was different and very good. I would recommend to others in the area.

The Split Banana is conveniently located in the downtown of Staunton on one of the myriad streets full of interesting shops and great food spots. Their gelato selection is bigger than any other gelato place I've visited and everything we tried was delicious. Great service, great town; we will be back. They also offered some interesting coffee drinks and other... More

We love the gelato (sp?) here at split banana. I'm a big fan of the maple flavor, not to mention the hazelnut. You have to get here quickly after the end of a play at Blackfriars, otherwise you end up in a long line ... it is that popular.

If you find yourself on Beverly in Staunton and you want a treat, visit the split banana co. Very, very good ice cream and non-dairy treats that will make you forget cream. Have dinner at Emilio's or the Clock Tower, but have dessert here.
