Hands down, the best gelato on Florence. We had the new pistachio with salt. OMG! The scoop comes with two flavors. I went with all pistachios and salt. Come here. Eat. Never leave. The BEST. Grazie.

Unfortunately, we didn't find this gem until our last day. The icecream was in deep pans with lids on, not all piled up and melting as in so many gelaterias. There were so many incredible flavours that choosing one or two was difficult. It was...More

Best chocolate gnache ice cream ever. You can't see the ice cream so it's not as pretty looking as other ice-cream shops but the chocolate gnache was amazing. We initially thought it'd be too rich to finish but it was delightful

Not the best we had in Florence, but much better than any ordinary place. The selection was quite limited, and ice cream too sweet

We got 2 medium scoops of gelato for 3.20 euros and it was perfectly creamy! Would visit again if we walk past it.

We sampled a lot! This was best of all. Loved all especially Alice and Contessa as well as the simpler flavors. Delicious!

There are probably thousands of gelaterias in Firenze with good gelato. There are probably a hundred with really good gelato. This is by far one of the very best! They make their ice cream fresh every day. They actually use proper ingredients, not just ready...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

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.
