Visited this restaurant during Christmas school holidays and it was very busy. You will need to line up for tables to become vacant, although the staff will move groups to a pre-eating bar area as that frees up as well. From there, the service was exceptional. There were 5 people in our party and all entrees, mains and deserts were... More

For me, it's hard to separate between Messina and RivaReno like some of the reviewers are trying. The pistachio, my favourite are outstanding at both and impossible for me to pick. The almond based flavour is definitely my other highlight at RivaReno. But it's really the fact that you're not in a long queue and treated like cattle but instead... More

My husband and I LOVE Gelato. We follow trip advisor ratings on restaurants religiously. Because of it's #1 rating, we tried Gelato Messina first and have gone there several times because it is indeed very good. But then I read about Riva Reno here & though this place was quite a long bus ride away, it was worth it! WOW!... More

You know when you discover a place that is perfect and irreplaceable, and then it goes out of business? I don't want that to ever happen to RivaReno, so I am writing this review to add to the chorus of praise. Sydneysiders for a long time have been very loyal to some fairly poor gelato offerings, entranced by sickly novelty... More

No matter which flavour you pick, everything here is top-class, at a reasonable price. Ice-cream is soft, balanced and bursting with flavour. You will be served by young Italian staff, who will guide you through the exclusive selection of traditional Italian ice-cream. No queue! I have been there several times and I never had to wait to be served. The... More

I discovered RivaReno Gelato one week ago and I fell in love with it. If you are looking for a wide range of flavors, I suggest that you go to another place. In fact, what you will find here is the real italian tradition: simple flavors but amazing! Personally, I tried Alice and Chocolate Sorbetto and they were absolutely delicious.... More
