Friends and I stopped at Gelato Di Riso after a huge meal "on the Hill." The selection of gelatos was good, and we each had our choice. We found the flavor to be very good, and we appreciated the very friendly, young lady behind the counter. She recognized the emblem on our shirt, and she engaged us in conversation about... More

I LOVE Gelato and this is the real deal! Fresh, fresh, fresh... Since this place is seasonal check the hours of operation then expect to wait in line since it is difficult for customers to choose from the plethora of flavors.

Best gelato I've had since I first tried some at Disney a year ago. So glad to find it relatively close to home!

We were walking by and saw this small little storefront that advertised gelato. What a joy to behold! Delicious gelato and friendly service to boot! We were offered tastes before we purchased, but we knew what we wanted already. Had a nice small seating area and even a small sink, soap, and paper towels if you wanted to wash your... More

Okay, so what is so awesome about this place, is you can ask to taste a specific flavor of gelato before buying a cupful of it. The gelato is amazing. And I've had several flavors. On this particular occasion, I had a scoop of lemon and a scoop of grapefruit. They were both amazing! And the prices are cheap. You... More

We stopped here a few days ago. The gelato is AMAZING! The only time we've had it this good was at Disney Springs and this place did not disappoint! Highly recommend.

Stopped here for a quick gelato on a hot summer day, and we weren't disappointed. They had at least 16 flavors from which to choose. I got the chocolate chip and my companion selected a combo of chocolate and peach-mango. All were wonderful. Would like to return to try more flavors and get a waffle cone. They have a small...

Stop by this cozy hole in the wall cafe for gelato and/or a sandwich. I usually get the portabello mushroom sandwich and several scoops of gelato. This is a must stop for out of towners.
