There are crews working inside the storefront next to the Nawab restaurant on First Colonial Road. What’s happening? Richmond-based Gelati Celesti is bringing its Italian-style ice cream to the Hilltop West Shopping Center.  Founded in 1984 with one store, Steve Rosser bought the company in 2010 and has expanded to five locations.
