If you are anywhere near Richmond, please give this place a try. You will not leave disappointed. Unique flavors are rich feel to it. The nice part is there is always a few new flavors which you haven't tried before.

These folks have mastered gelato. Such creaminess. Such depth of flavor. My current favorite flavor is salted caramel but you can't go wrong here.
