My wife discovered this establishment not long after our arrival in RVA. It's been our go to dessert spot when family is in from out of town.

I grew up near one of the 10 best ice cream places in all of the USA (Ferris Acres Creamery). When I cannot get home, Gelati Celesti is the place I go. Their gelati definitely is amazing!!

With an ever changing menu, there is always something new to taste. Great customer service allows tasting and never makes you feel rushed. Just Ask is my favorite, and Blanchard's Dark as Dark.

Whenever my co-workers and I need a pick-me-up, we head to Gelati Celesti. The staff is so nice and the Gelato flavors are delicious!
