“Yummies gelatos!!!”
Review of Gelati Celesti

Gelati Celesti
Ranked #20 of 49 Dessert in Richmond
Restaurant details
Reviewed 30 December 2015 via mobile

At Gelato Celesti, you will find 24 flavors of creamy and delicious ice cream (almond amaretto, cherry vanilla, banana, salted caramel, strawberry, oreo, chocolate peanut butter, butter pecan, rum raisin and many others). Those are called house favorites.
Now, at Cristmas time, they also have 12 specials flavors, like Cristmas cookie, pumpkin, peppermint and eggnog.
It's a small place, with a cool decoration and a gentle attendants, which serves yummies ice creams.
Good to go with friends or family.

I've been going to the Golds Gym across the parking lot for over a year and took note of this place but never went in until recently. I went in not knowing what to expect and was very pleasantly surprised. The place was very clean and the owner/manager there was very friendly and willing to talk. I ended up with a small cup with two scoops, one of mint chip and the other of banana. Eating that ice cream put me into a better frame of mind after 2 bad days at work. It was smooth and soft enough to scoop up with a spoon.

This was definitely one of the best homemade ice creams I've tasted. The owner even mentioned the banana ice cream was made fresh and with real bananas and mint chip did not have that artificial green color normally associated with a mint ice cream.

This place is worth the drive to the west of Broad Street. Just look for the West Tower Shopping Center. The only thing you would have to watch out for is that parking in the evenings can be tight. You have a Chinese restaurant, Golds Gym and a Comedy/Improve club all sharing the same parking lot.

Outstanding ice cream! Fantastic fresh ice cream with wonderful flavors. The usuals plus coconut cream, 'just ask', peach, pralines and cream, espresso, lemon...
Lets face it, the reason you are here is for the ice cream - not the location, décor, etc. It's in a small shopping area without much else, but who cares? The ice cream is outstanding!

Hands Down this is the best ice cream in Richmond.
We have been to Italy several times in the past 7 years. My husband is an ice cream lover. We hit every Gelato place maybe 2 times a day. By far, we think Gelati Celesti ice cream at Stony Point is even better then the Italian made.
It is homemade, many flavors which are all great. Our favorites are their espresso
( it has a new name), salted caramel, chocolate peanut butter and peach. They usually have seasonal favorites as well such as cinnamon, pumpkin, and peppermint. Also they have an ice cream truck you can get to come for businesses and parties. Give them a call. In fact, Run don't walk you won't be disappointed!

This is a Richmond gem. 3 locations and local ice cream.
Wonderful.
No idea how many flavors they offer, but its more than enough. My favorite - Vanilla Chip. It's a chocolate chip that's truly a premium ice cream. Add hot fudge and...oh yeah.
