I have been eating vanilla my entire life until I encountered Gelati Celesti. I am hooked on the Pralines and Cream and Butter Pecan. The flavors, the waffle cone...oh, my!

My wife LOVED it but I only got a regular flavor of vanilla... she would have much had much more enjoyed any of their other great and unique flavors. Purchased just a quart for something like $11.

I love their gelato so much I had them come to my house and cater dessert for sixty five people. My friends and family went crazy! Cups, cones, great presentation. Extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff!

This place is fabulous! Friendly staff and lots of flavors to choose from. Salted Carmel is my favorite. The portions are large and the Gelato is so creamy and delicious. My family from parents to children love the neighborhood Gelato treat!

Blanchards dark as dark. Nuff said. I've been eating Gelati Celeste since I was 16. That's about 22 years. It gets better as I get older. Whether it's their food truck or the stores, I don't care. They're all awesome.

Gelati Celesti has the best ice cream in Richmond by far. Lots of flavors to choose from and I haven't had one I didn't like! Service is usually quick even when they are really busy. I love this place!
