“Best gelato ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2014

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!

“I'll be back for more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

What a way to end our first wedding anniversary, dessert at this gem of a place.
Love that you can taste test the flavours.
I ended up getting Lemon and Raspberry sorbet and Salted Caramel gelato... Amazing!!!
My husband got Lemon sorbet and Baci gelato.
So good we went back for seconds!
Only a short walk from The Colombian Hotel on Oxford St, very easy to find.
Can't wait to go back!

“Riva Reno - gelato as it should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

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 Riva Reno a try - it surely will make a lasting impression.. Especially when being served by Italians - it just transports you over there for a few moments :)!

“Real Gelato”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2014

I didn't know what real gelato tasted like until I went to this place. So creamy. Made from imported Alpine milk. Once you taste it you can't go back to the normal stuff that gets sold in Australia.

“Absolutely amazing gelato! You must try this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2014

I simply cannot recommend this place enough! If you have never tried RivaReno, or have thought about trying this place, do so! I am not a huge gelato/desert fan however I will make the exception here. Prices are really affordable and staff are super friendly and will provide recommendations for you to try. A variety of contemporary and traditional/classic flavors are at your choosing in waffle cone or cup. It certainly makes a terrific stop after a dinner out and I will be definitely returning!
