My fiance and myself both love this place. It has been a favorite of mine for years... actually since I was a small child. I really love the ability to taste as many flavors as you would like to. My personal favorite for years has been the white chocolate. The service has always been good and the prices are reasonable... More

It's hard to walk out paying almost $5 for a double ice cream cone. It's good ice cream, but not worth that much imho.

Gelati Celesti has a really wide range of ever changing flavors of Gelato and is quite generous with their portions. I agree with one of the previous reviewers that you should look at the portions prior to ordering. The SMALL is two scoops of richness - you can mix and match. You can taste any number of samples before choosing.... More

I had the "JUST ASK" ice cream which is oreo, PB, and white chocolate. I have to say it was very good.....creamy and very tasty. Filled me up and I was able to skip lunch. Their menu could be better...right now it is barebones. Packed with families from all walks of life. They also need to advertise better; they are... More

The ice cream is great and they have so many flavors to choose from so it's a difficult decision to make. Some of the best ice cream that I've had. Looking forward to my next trip!
