3rd time together in store and once at their food truck. Best in town! May have to get a big order to bring home one day. Also like the giant chalk board that patrons can write / draw on.

This is the best ice cream in Richmond by far. It is a little $ then others but the best. Some of the staff is nice others are just ok.

My co-workers and I love food, we love dessert. Since we travel a lot we are always trying different restaurants. This was a first for this establishment. We were introduced here by a co-worker who frequents her visits here often. There are so many flavors that it was hard to choose. I had the Baklava ice cream and it was... More

We have been going to get our ice cream here for years. I was worried when the original owners sold but the new owners have held their own. The ice cream here is the best in town and they have flavors you just will not ind anywhere else. Gelati Celesti is a must if you are an ice cream fan.

If you are tired of the same old ice cream flavors, give this place a try. It has a very creamy texture that is more like gelato than store bought ice cream. I had the chocolate decadence which is a rich, deep chocolate but not over powering. My husband had the mint chocolate chip which he raved over. He is... More

Have become a regular at the Stony Point location, that has a refrigerator for a quick pint or quart pickup, or to order a cone/cup to eat there at an indoor or outside table. The staff is always super friendly. The flavors are outstanding! This is probably one of my top 3 places IN THE WORLD for ice cream. So... More

I've been eating this ice cream for years and have never been disappointed. The consistency and flavor is top quality, the stores are comfortable and service is always on the ball. And those waffle cones... the smell alone makes your mouth water, and they don't let your taste buds down either.

Took us a while to find this place. It is located in the back of a generic mall. The outdoor seating was next to the parking, but besides that the quality, the flavors and the service were top notch. We loved the chocolate decadence and cinnamon oatmeal dough. The espresso bean was excellent too. We could see why it won... More
