Endulgeance at its best

You only live once, try the creamiest, best tasting gelato this side of Sicily. Almond Ameretto, Oreo, and Coffee are at the top of my list. Try any of the three Richmond area locations, some variety of preparation but quality and great taste found regardless of the zip code.

I visited Richmond 12 years ago and found this place and finally made it back, It was still as good as I remembered! Hope I don't have to wait another 12 years to come back!

I absolutely love this place and have been coming here for at least 20 years! The ice cream is dense and rich and much more flavorful than most. I also love the variety of flavors available. My all time favorite is Chocolate Decadence. The ice cream is on the pricier side but it is worth it.

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.

The Rum Raisin flavor at Gelati Celeste is a must-have. My family and I agree that no other rum raisin from any other gelati/ice cream vendor measures up!
