Wow!! Amazing!

Discovered this place years ago. This is the best ice cream in town. The flavors change often and they are all amazing. Once you make the first trip you'll find yourself making excuses to be in the area!

There is good reason why there is a line out the door in summer months. Quite simply it is that good.

Best ice cream in Richmond! Extremely creamy and rich. The toddler size is one nice size scoop, and the small is 2 scoops. So order accordingly. Anyone can get a toddler size :-). Enjoy!!!

My family has enjoyed Gelati Celesti for at least 25 years. Nothing further to say. Go there and try it yourself.
