I love u can taste their new flavors... They have wonderful selection of unique flavors. I have never tried any toppings because the ice cream is so good.

Decadent home made gelato in tiny Staunton, worth a detour! I had 2 scoops...sweet potato pie and cinnamon. Delicious! Really friendly staff and very happy customers. They are open pretty late too, so skip the restaurant and head here!

Make sure to go and get a fresh Gelato...up there with some of the best I have had across the country. While visiting I saw a very impressive banana split as well. They have a few tables outside to sit and enjoy the passers by as well as indoor seating.

Best ice cream around and they use locally sourced ingredients. :) The flavors they offer cannot be found anywhere else. :)

Can't walk by without stopping in and trying at least one scoop of the wonderful ice cream and gelato! The aroma of the waffle cones is enough to drag you in the door.

We went after the Shakespeare play and enjoyed a wonderful dinner of fresh, creative and delicious gelato. It is as super as advertised.

Seasonal flavors, unusual flavors and terrific classics. This is a friendly and delicious place for a treat. It always smells good inside because they make their own waffle cones -yum!

Loved this place - great ice cream and fun in downtown Staunton. It's very popular so it can get crowded- seating is pretty limited, but even if you have to wait it's worth it.

This is a neat little hole in the wall place. It is unusual not to find a line, but moves fast. They list where their ingredients come from and they always have different flavors. If you're undecided they offer free sample tastes. Typical Downtown Staunton shop.

Favorite part of going to Rome is eating gelato every day....if you walk everywhere you can indulge in this delish treat. What is even more fantastic is having classic gelato right in your hometown. Split Banana has all the classic flavors and then seasonal specialties such as Highland Maple, Virginia Peanut Butter and my favorite ancho chocolate. Local or visitor... More
