26 bins of gelato at a time made right there in front of you, with more flavors interspersed regularly. Great shakes, and hot chocolate to die for! Friendliest service in a town known for friendly service. One of a kind store, not a chain.

This is an ice cream place that serves gelato. It is very good, and all house made. They do a wide variety of gelato, with many flavors, toppings, cones, and more.

Wonderful home-made gelato and sorbets. I had the chocolate - rich, rich and full of flavor, and the "sticky rice" - coconut infused with jasmine rice - fabulous stuff! A happy place to be sure! And, very pleasant staff serving!

This place was absolutely delicious!! They were generously offering samples, so we were able to try a few different flavors. Their serving options give the choice of having more than one flavor, so we were able to mix choices. The staff there was incredibly friendly....More

This is a not to be missed stop in Staunton for anyone with a sweet tooth. We made an afternoon stop and sampled the delicious gelato. My favorite was the cherry cheesecake and lemon gelato. It is the best gelato I have eaten!! You need...More
