I bought my husband some gelato here on a warm sunny day. He chose a medium size, which, thought it was 3 scoops, they were small ones. Tasty, but over $5 for a small container of ice cream. Ask for a little spoon so you can sneak a taste from others.

My wife and I tried this after dinner on Valentine's Day. It was our first time here and it was amazing. The place has a very cool "hang out" type vibe. The staff was friendly and helpful. They allowed us to sample a few flavors as we couldn't decide. The gelato is really good. I thought at first the size... More

Chocolate Hazelnut is the bomb I must admit. Otherwise it's like any other gelato place I have ever visited.

Homemade Gelato, all kinds of creative flavors. Also the basics for the less adventurous. The gelato comes in very petite cups. It's all so rich it's all you need.

Large range of flavors- classics but also some fun ones like green tea or chai. Always very fresh. The wait is never very long even when a good number in front of you.

Excited to find another food place with rose flavored food. This rose mint gelato is made with rose sugar. It is still present of that lightly velvet toungue feel rose has, the mint is very subtle thankfully, because I'm not a big mint fan. Actually this gelato is kind of like a dekicious spa for the mouth and taste buds.... More

What? Beer and gelato together? It is really as amazing as it sounds...oh yeah it truly is. Such a wonderful treat on a steamy night. The servers were so nice and helpful too, a genuine "real deal" in downtown Charlottesville. Can't wait for our next visit.
