I have been visiting Gelati Celesti since the 1980's! They have a wonderful selection of flavors to choose from. Rum Rasin & Pralines and Cream have been a long time favorite. Little costly but well worth the price.

Selections are numerous &often creative. We especially like chocolate decadence. One grandchild can't eat eggs & he can eat here. There are also several fruit sorbets to select

Though the facade and decor are quite typical of a frozen dessert venue, that's where it ends. Serving handmade Gelati at it's best, this is one place that is a must do. Can't say I loved them all but if there's a seasonal specialty on the board, don't even think about not trying a sample at the least. Enjoy....

Our family of 6 stopped in for dessert. It certainly seemed a lot more like ice cream than gelato but it was good. I tried the chocolate with peppermint bits in it. That was not a good choice as the frozen solid bits detracted from the yummy chocolate. Everyone got a different flavor and everyone was happy. With 3 pints,... More

I am obsessed with Gelati Celesti. I can't go near this shopping center without planning a trip for ice cream. The texture is perfect and they have a ton of fun flavors. Blanchard's dark as dark (coffee-chocolate), mint chip and chocolate chocolate chip are all fantastic.

We have enjoyed this special place for nearly 20 years. They make the ice cream and offer seasonal flavors like Pumpkin which has ginger snap cookie pieces in it.
