This place may be a hole in the wall (literally) but it has awesome gelato. I recommend you go here and bring everybody you know.

“Overpriced ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

Small selection of overpriced gelato. Located in a hard to find back closet of a place. Tiny portions and everything is extra. Search elsewhere.

“Food and drink good, EXCEPTIONAL service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

We happened to find this place because there were some guys handing out samples of the gelato outside. After tasting it, we decided to inside and check it out. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the man who owns or operates this place!!! Talk about customer service and just such a kind person! We came back the next day just because of him. We actually came in, thinking he was open, and proceeded to figure out what we wanted. He served us like it was regular business hours and even went out of his way to make sure we were completely satisfied with our orders. He had run out of chai latte that I wanted to order but helped me choose something different instead and was very patient with us. It wasn't until we paid and were leaving did we realize he was just in there preparing for the day before he opened. It was a Sunday morning about 10am, and it didn't open until noon! The next time I'm in San Antonio, I will most definitely make a stop here again and again!

“Flavours OK but really didn't like the texture”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

In a tiny mall on the river walk, you'll find Rio Gelato. We actually sought this out due to the tripadvisor reviews and for once we were disappointed.
Only a small selection of flavours and the texture of the ice cream was very odd, it crumbled when you tried to scoop it up with a spoon. Very strange.
Service was friendly and prices were OK but I wouldn't go back. I just didn't think it was 'proper' gelato.

“very good ice cream and very very nice owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We can in here by chance after buying boat tour tickets, it's a small very attractive Gelateria. All home made ice cream and home made cones, how great is that. The owner was really very friendly and we passed some time with him. They are generations of gelato makers from Pisa originally.
