Great homemade gelato! You have to try it! It is worth the visit. You get huge servings. Do try the Guiness Stout gelato.

We were in Staunton for a weekend trip and we had heard that their gelato is not to be missed. We had just eaten lunch and were excited to taste the flavors they had. I really enjoyed the Pineapple Basil! My husband had the Cherry Cheesecake and Lemon flavors. My only regret is not coming by again to try another... More

We can't seem to walk by without stopping in for a dish of gelato. All the flavors are great. I haven't tried one I didn't like! A must for Gelato fans!

Is it the best ice cream/gelato in Staunton or surroundings? Yes. Does it have the most uproarious flavors? Yes. Do I like all of them? No. But who does? The Guinness stout got me. The pistachio and espresso are great but the pineapple basil is especially great. Rich, tasty and refreshing to the palate as well as being delicious. Got... More

The Split Banana offers both ice cream and sorbet, in a variety of flavors. A friendly clerk will offer you a taste when you first walk in, if you can make it to the counter through the crowds. Favorite flavors of ours are: M&M Birthday Cake, Cherry Cheesecake, and Hazelnut. The Monthly flavors we loved were Butter Pecan (July), Chocolate... More

This place is almost always busy and I now know why. We stopped in this past weekend and oh my! There were so many flavors to choose from and I loved that the staff were willing to let me try out several flavors before settling on what I ordered. The gelato was amazing along with the sorbet. Definitely check this... More

My daughter and I were visiting shops in Staunton and came across the best smell. It was the smell of waffle cones being baked at the split banana co.. Good thing we walked in when we did because there was a line out the door when we left. The staff was friendly and eager to give out samples. I had... More

We stopped late at night after a play. They are open till 11:00 p.m. the gelato was fantastic and the women working behind the counter (possibly the owners) were very friendly and helpful. I would love to pick the place up and bring it home with me.
