heavenly handmade ice cream

Gelati Celesti was established in 1984 in Richmond, Virginia and now operates ten neighborhood stores: seven in Richmond and three in Hampton Roads. Our mission is to bring a few moments of joy to others with the very best ice cream scooped up with the very best service.

Our customers tell us that just a single spoonful of Gelati Celesti is a little taste of heaven – rich, decadent, creamy deliciousness. A moment of pure joy. What makes our ice cream so heavenly? We pride ourselves on offering an exceptional product with the very best flavor possible. Each batch of our ice cream is made by hand with only the finest ingredients from around the world. Flavors are churned in small batches using special Italian equipment, allowing us to care for and consider each scoop of ice cream that we make and serve. The hand-crafted process may take longer, but we think it makes our ice cream that much better. And our proprietary process minimizes the air whipped into our product, making it uniquely flavorful, thick and creamy, and flat out special.


In addition to our 24 House Favorites and more than 100 flavors that are rotated throughout the year, we offer ice cream sandwiches and made-to-order ice cream pies and cakes personally decorated for any occasion. And when you just can’t get enough, we'll hand-pack your favorite flavors in quart or pint containers so you can have Gelati Celesti at home or wherever you get the craving. 


We invite you to treat yourself to a little scoop of heaven!
