These are the best flavors. The gelato & sorbet are very good. You can get cones, bowls, sundaes & more. Must go when here.

We were visiting Staunton and I was surprised to see that this place was rated #1 by Trip Advisor. We stopped by. This is probably the best gelato I've ever had, and that includes daily gelato in Italy. Very highly recommended! I can vouch for the chocolate, hazelnut, and blackberry/raspberry sorbet. Outstanding!

Good, some very tastee flavors, but a little inconsistent. Comparing the Split Banana it to Splendora in Charlottesville is like Splendora's to Capogiro's in Philly - its sliding scale. The flavors I tried ranged from excellent to okay. The chocolate was super rich - much to my liking but too dry for my wife. The raspberry had an interesting flavor, like sucrolose or agave which was little odd and it was a little seedy (shrug -definitely real berries?). Anyway, I guarantee most folks will find something they like and atmosphere was kid friendly, comfortable, and the folks behind the counter were super nice.

How can you go wrong with gelato and sherbet in July? Lots of creative flavors-- like pineapple basil-- and a friendly staff despite a line at 10:45 pm!

Stopped in for an afternoon treat (not a category in the TripAdvisor choices) during a road trip. The gelato was excellent and I enjoyed the old time ice cream parlor feel. The prices were much more reasonable than the big ice cream chains.
