Description: RivaReno Gelato is synonymous with a constant quest in the world for all natural ingredients for their freshness, purity, intense flavours and overall highest grade qualities. Our gelato contains no hydrogenated fat, preservatives, anti-oxidants and artificial colourings. One of the most important ingredients of gelato is milk. The quality of our milk and the way we process it contains the secret of the intensity and the extraordinary taste of RivaReno Gelato. RivaReno Gelato is made only with alpine milk and cream from the Stura Valley in Piedmont. The Stura Valley is situated on the border between the Cozie and Maretime Alps in the province of Cuneo of the Piedmont region. Each RivaReno store has a lab where every flavour is made by adhering to high standard production processes. Our gelato is made daily in small batches several times a day to ensure ultra-freshness. RivaReno Gelato is not displayed in the typical ice-cream counter where customers can see the products. Our gelato is contained in the traditional Italian cylindrical containers deep inside the counter so as not to be exposed to the air for better conservation. We do not use colorants or preservatives nor do we need to use air to "puff up" our gelato. RivaReno sources the world for the best raw materials. The intenseness of our gelato comes from generous dosage of those materials of the highest qualities. We also use cones that contain less sugar so that our customers actually taste the genuine flavours of our gelato rather than being "distracted" by the sweetness of the cones. INTENSO, VELLUTATO, CREMOSO. BUONO PERCHE SEMPRE FRESCO. Un piacere per il palato dalle caratteristiche inconfondibili che si riconosco al primo assaggio. Il gelato RivaReno e il risultato unico di un giusto equilibrio fra intensita di sapori, consistenza avvolgente e giusta temperatura di servizio. Materie prime di altissima qualita e il loro corretto dosaggio fanno si che ad ogni assaggio del gelato RivaReno si percepisca chiaramente il gusto di ogni singolo ingrediente. La cura costante nella ricettazione, il dosaggio equilibrato di zuccheri e grassi, uniti a una formulazione attenta impediscono la formazione nel gelato di cristalli di ghiaccio e gli donano un'inconfondibile consistenza vellutata e cremosa. La temperatura cui il gelato viene servito, piu alta rispetto alla norma, favorisce la percezione distintiva dei sapori dando la sensazione di gustare un gelato meno freddo del solito. Per offrire ai propri clienti un gelato sempre fresco, ogni gelateria RivaReno produce quotidianamente la quantita di prodotto necessaria per la giornata minimizzando gli avanzi ed evitando che la bonta e la qualita del gelato vengano alterate. Questo accade anche in inverno, quando il consumo di gelato si riduce. Nella stagione fredda, infatti, RivaReno ridimensiona l'offerta di gusti e la quantita di gelato prodotto.

The best gelato we have tried in Florence! The shop is quite modern and easily the cleanest and most hygienic (all covered ice cream) we have seen whilst we have been here.
The guy serving was really friendly, spoke good English and offered tasters before we picked our flavors.
To top it off the ice cream was delicious and creamy. We'll definitely be going back.

I've been here in august and I was surprise of the good quality icecream they have: I loved their pistacchio, the best I've tried in my whole life. The girl serving was kind and helpful. If you happen to pass by, pay a visit i'm sure you'll not regret it.

I have tried almost all quality gelaterias In Florence, but this has stood up again and again as my favorite. I remember when they opened they weren't that busy and my friends and I thought we found a great secret but they are always busy now! Both Alice (crema w chocolate sauce) and morena add the topping on top, not mixed in so the flavor is great. When they have it, otello is to die for. On a regular basis, the mango is great. The price is very reasonable and they heap it into the cup.
