My husband and I stopped here after an impromptu trip to Staunton this weekend. If you're looking for something sweet to follow a meal this is the place. The prices are reasonable, servings are sized right (not too much, but I also didn't feel cheated), and the service was speedy and friendly.

Lots of choices of house made gelato. Had a 3 scoop dish with cinnamon, pumpkin pie, and apple pie. Fall flavors!

We stayed overnight in Staunton and craving ice cream. Sought this place out based on other reviews. We tried the Cocoa Ancho and M&M Birthday cake. Both were tasty, and the Cocoa Ancho was spicy! Service was good-friendly, and you can sample before committing to a flavor. Not bad for a gelato!

We went on a Saturday and there was a long line. So you know it is good. This gelato was light which worked well for me as a dinner dessert.

How nice to have a local ice cream/gelato shop for our city and tourists to enjoy. Great nostalgic atmosphere and always fresh gelatos that change daily. Yummy homemade waffle cones too.

This little shop in downtown has delicious gelato, made in the store and featuring many local ingredients. They have basics, but also seasonal flavors. I had the Cocoa Ancho, and it was fantastic!

THe Split Banana is a wonderful place to visit for ice cream on a hot summer day or even for dessert after a great dinner in downtown Staunton. The shop is even owned and operated by on of my former 5th grade students!
