THE Best Ice Cream/Gelati

This is a standard for my mother and I, both. We usually stop by at least once per week. My favorite is either the chocolate or any variety of coffee.

Gelati Celesti makes delicious gelato and ice cream. I have been there several times to get something special when I am having company. If I want the best ice cream- this is where I go.

Creamy, rich, and consistently great. Not cheap but portions are usually generous. Salted caramel and butter pecan are my favorites. Return customer for about 20 years.

None better and blows regular ice cream away. Can get crowded at times but still great experience. A little pricey, but worth it.

I live in Richmond and this has been my favorite place to get ice-cream for over 20 years. This is a family owned business that's been around for decades. They have recently opened two more locations so now it's even more convenient. They rotate flavors seasonally and there's always something new. Two locations have outdoor seating.
