Tastiest place in Virginia, worth a special trip! This place is amazing and the quality is outstanding. Luckily we are in walking distance and can frequent often!

We stopped in this shop while staying in the area for a trip. Now I just want to go back so we can get more gelato! Amazing flavors and very good prices. I had the pistachio (they used real pistachios, not almonds!) and hazelnut. Both were amazing. You will not regret trying this place out!

This is a very nice gelato/ice cream shop. They house make all the ice cream and flavors vary day to day. We sampled a half dozen different flavors before we made our final choice. All the flavors we tried were very good. They were full of flavor and very creamy. We will return here.

Tried 3 or 4 samples and couldn't decide on just one flavor, so got the small sampler with two flavors (Virginia Peanut Butter and Chocolate) and it was... More

This is a true gelateria! We make a point of going off the interstate the few miles into the old part of town for a cone or cup of gelato. We've never been let down! A large selection of flavours make everyone satisfied and my friend went back for thirds. My favs are the vanilla and hazelnut, but the other... More

The gelato was delicious, and made locally with local, organic ingredients. The staff was friendly. We enjoyed our treat outside as we listened to folks playing the guitar and singing up the street. highly recommended!

Excellent gelato with a range of interesting flavors. The ancho/cocoa was quite good as were all of the other flavors we tried.
