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.

Splendoras Gelato is amazing! Of the many options for dessert on the Downtown Mall I would always recommend Splendoras above the rest. They have a great range from traditional flavors, like Gianduia (Chocolate Hazelnut), to adventurous, like Strawberry Pink Peppercorn. Don't miss trying it out when you are in Cville!

Not in the mood for an early lunch but gelato, absolutely! We stopped in here and grabbed us chilly treats as we were visiting the area. Definitely will be back this way and will stop in again.

Finally, a real Italian style espresso - YUM. Though normally I pick gelato over sorbet, the dark chocolate sorbet was so good I had to get it. All made in house and very flavorful. I sampled 8 flavors and all were excellent/authentic.

What a gem of a little gelato place! On the walking mall in Charlottesville, Splendora's features a great array of unique and yummy gelato flavors. My favorite was the honey, goat cheese and fig. Grab a gelato and walk off the calories on the mall! Splendora's has become a staple for me when I'm in town.
