Seriously, this is one of those places that we make sure to visit every time we are in Staunton. The Gelato is some of the best I have ever had and the cappuccinos are excellent, too. This is a don't miss spot.

Cool little place. Perfect stop on a hot summer day. Lots of flavor choices and even a sample if you need help choosing.

The gelatos, ice creams and sorbets are all very well done -- some with inventive flavors! Appreciate the use of locally source dairy, too!

In dire need of dessert (not!), we popped into the Split Banana and indulged our sweet tooth. The black raspberry and ancho chile chocolate were excellent.

We popped in for a gelato and found the atmosphere super cute. Prices were very fair for what we got and the tables were clean. Worth stopping in for a treat!

The staff were friendly, the place is popular, and the flavors are abundant. We ordered 5 shakes and two cones of ice cream and found the food to be tasty, vibrant, and memorable. Quaint home town style of ice cream shop with a healthy blend of old school and modern.

We were brought here by locals and loves the great flavors such as chocolate chili and eggnog. It was freezing outside and that did not matter because the gelato was so delicious. Whole unpasteurized milk, natural organic ingredients, original flavors and it was busy on a chilly night. I would definitely recommend this!!

A special experience for anyone young at heart! Flavors change regularly. All are homemade. My favorite is the vanilla but all are delicious!

We try gelato wherever we go and the Split Banana's is the best. Period. It's always fresh and they change their flavors every month to keep us coming back to see what's new. And their hot chocolate is worth a trip all by itself.
