Definitely a place to stop when in Staunton. Staff is friendly and freely offer samples. We each had a two scoop waffle cone- you can mix flavors, which we recommend. Did not try the milk shake or sundae, but the description sure looked good! We eill definitely visit again on our next trip to Staunton.

This was our last stop heading out of town. Next time it might be our first stop. And we'll need a few stops in the middle. The young lady at the counter is just the perfect ambassador for gelato. Generous with samples, full of info, enthusiastic and sunny. You are bound to find flavors you love. Everything is fresh, the flavors crisp and true, the portions generous, the atmosphere comfortable and contemporary while evoking nostalgia for simpler days. One a par with great gelato found in great towns like Bar Harbor and Charleston.

You should visit downtown Staunton. Its a real gem of Victorian architecture. There are now many shops and restaurants. After a good meal, go to the Split Banana for some good ice cream and ices.

This was my first experience with gelato and I was amazed! It is hard to decide among all the flavors offered. We love this place and will return again whenever in the area! All I can say is, it is good we don't live here, it would be difficult to just say no. :)
This is something you need to try when visiting Staunton! You wont be disappointed!

A menagerie of flavors. I tried several over a couple visits and each one was more perfectly executed than the last. Extremely full and rich. Have a double scoop--it's more than worth the cringing after you step on the scale the next day.
