Never been disappointed. Always friendly service and great flavors. Nice bright atmosphere. Patio area is great for warm weather and inside is always filled with kids artwork. Great place for a relaxed afternoon snack.

Five of us went to Gelati Celesti for ice cream after dinner. The friendly service from Catherine and Emily and wonderful, fresh and tasty ice cream brought smiles to all our faces. Although it was a cool, windy evening we watched hungry ice creamers of all ages come and go. We'll be back.

Have been going for years and always good. They have many selections but my favorite is Oreo. Anxious for the new location to open.

Very delicious and a treat for splurge days or special occasions. Would have given it 5 stars except the scoop size seems to be getting smaller and smaller.

We have been enjoying ice cream since 1984. When our now adult children come into town, it's one of the first places they go. New flavors are as delicious as the old, tried and true one, such as chocolate decadence. So pleased they have opened yet another great location at Scott's Addition.

My 4 kids and wife think this is the best ice cream in the Richmond area. We used to live within walking distance of their place next to West Tower movies but still go there now that we live 15 minutes away.

I took my kids to Gelati Celesti this past Saturday night. There was a line that took about 15 minutes and there weren't any seats left. I suppose that's the mark of a good place. The Gelato was good but probably not worth the price - $4.15 for a small cup.

Thank Andrew P
