Famous for all natural ingredients, freshness, purity and intense flavours, RivaReno contains no hydrogenated fat, preservatives, colours or flavours. Gelato is made in small batches several times a day to ensure ultra-freshness in the in-store lab. Gelato is stored in traditional Italian pozzetti (cylindrical containers) deep inside the counter, avoiding exposure to air for better conservation.

I wasn't a fan of RivaReno back in Milan where it is and I am from and it won't be my first choice here in Sydney either. The ingredients are raw and fresh, and the gelato is freshly made, but the flavours are too intense and way too creamy for my taste. And this is the only reason why I... More

We came here after a spicy meal in Surrey Hills - and it was the perfect finish. They offer all the old favourites: rich chocolate etc, but they also feature some creative new flavours and are happy to offer a taste to help you decide!

We was unsure where to eat on our last night in Sydney, and after walking along the resturants in the harbour, decided on this one due to the amount of people eating there, we was not disappointed as the food was of the highest quality with service and price to match, loved it!!!

You simply have to try the Ganache and Moka. The texture of that flavor is absolutely amazing! It IS like having a cake and ice cream in one. My wife had the chocolate sorbet, which was really good as well. We need to try those ice cream cakes displayed on the corner next time. The staff were very accommodating and... More

The unique flavors and creamy texture is far superior to any gelato I've ever tasted, including in Italy! I only wish one of their stores was close to where I live. Bravo!

Amazing!!! My husband got Lemon sorbet and Baci gelato. So good we went back for seconds! Only a short walk from The Colombian Hotel... More

If I were to say anything about Riva Reno it would be the consistency in how amazing the Gelato is each time I go back. The natural ingredients used and the smoothness of the gelato creates this 'needing to keep going back for more' reaction!! If you are after that 'yum' factor and flavours that are truely palatable then give... More
