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.

The gelato is delicious. No complaints there..... But......the scoops are sooo tiny that I really did not feel that they are worth the price they charge. Will research other Gelato options next time we visit the area.

This is outstanding gelato, delicious and flavorful, made with local ingredients, crafted with love and imagination. The flavors range from favorites (chocolate, vanilla) to gourmet inventions - I was amazed by the Pine (yes, Pine!) flavored gelato, and I would definitely go again for the Peach Pie gelato, or Mexican coffee.

This was a great find on a 95 degree evening. The blueberry lemon gelato was great. My kids loved trying small samples of many flavors which the staff encouraged. Definitely a nice selection of flavors at a good quality.

Strolling the downtown mall on a warm afternoon we needed to take a break. Wife loves fine chocolate gelato and we found it here. Very rich and full chocolate flavor. One scoop was plenty while I had one of their fruit flavors. Sat outside and enjoy people watching.
