Everything here is delicious! It's rich and creamy and locally made. Love that they have the regular flavors but also several that change constantly. The servers are friendly and will let you sample anything and everything! Some of our favorites are the just ask (white chocolate ice cream with peanut butter and Oreos), baklava (not always available), strawberry, banana, salted... More

This ice cream is so good, because it tastes fresh, and it has a nice texture, and the rest is indescribable. It's just that good!

This has to be one of the best gelato places in VA. They are in a non-descript shopping center off Broad Street. The staff is friendly and helpful and let you try different flavors. The flavor selection is awesome. Each flavor tastes just like its description. When they are baking their waffle cones, it smells even better. This a must... More

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.

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
