The setting and ambience of Rimini in itself is something to transport you to a different world. It is a great place for baked goods, special drinks and of course authentic gelato. Seating is limited but they do have outdoor seating available as well with a beautiful view of the square and surrounding buildings. A must when you're in Vail... More

Starbucks was packed, so we walked to the next place we could find for a coffee. $4 for a large, regular coffee and $4 for a small americano, and they only offered one size americano. Surprisingly, Starbucks would have cost less and provided much better coffee.

Since giving up coffee a number of years ago, I have been a devoted chai tea drinker. I usually shy away from anything made with powder. Unfortunately, even though a supposed coffee shop competing with the Starbucks nearby, I was sorely disappointed. My husband's iced mocha was however not bad.

This quaint shop in Lionshead Village provided a relaxing stop during a short visit to this shopping area. The gelato was delicious and the servings were generous. The variety was impressive, too. The staff was friendly and engaging.

Summer is indeed the best time to come to Rimini's gelato, because of their delicious, out-of-this world Blueberry Gelato! I come to Colorado every summer, and I have to have my blueberry Gelato every time!

Awesome! Fantastic berry crepes, gelato and coffee!! The staff is wonderful. We exhibited at the Vail Arts Festival and fortunately our booth was conveniently located just outside Rimini.

Nice little shop for delicious gelato and pastries. Smells awesome as soon as you walk in the door. Perfect afternoon snack in June on the mountain. Service was quick and the portions were generous.

We always stop by here for a variety deserts. They always have great choices and flavors. Gelato is particularly good

I enjoyed a cappucino and pastry nearly every day at this gorgeous little french inspired cafe in Lionshead Village Vail on my recent visit January 2016. Being a non-skier I would leave my family to ski in the morning and head to Rimini with my journal and coffee and to watch all the people walk by. Great coffee, croissant, muffins,... More
