Forget about the gelato shops around the tourist area! Come to this Rivareno Gelato, where it is located just steps away from San Giovanni station. The pricing is just half of what you get at Trevi Fountain, but tasted 5x better!!! Love it and almost got myself a 2nd cone right after I finished the 1st. Truly the best Gelato... More

During my week here, I went back pretty much every day. Loved every flavour I tried, but the best for me was the nutty chocolatey Rivareno - heaven in a cone! Two months on and I'm still struggling to forget it.

Although quite strategically located near San Giovanni in Laterano (but just outside the city walls and on a busy street) it is ignored by most tourists. A pity because it's serving probably the best ice cream in the while Roman area. Incredibly smooth creaminess of its milk based ice creams, and real fruit instead of flavour for the other types....

Best ice creams we've had in Rome - tasty and creamy! Generous portions. €3 for a medium two scoop cone. I wish I had as good a gelataria at home...

This place was opposite our apartment and we visited 3 times over the long weekend. Cheaper than places in town. The sorbet was especially good, I loved the banana one and the kids really enjoyed the crepes. Ask for an English menu, they have one under the counter.

The gelato here was fantastic, I stayed in Rome for 4 days and visited this place 3 times! Each time I got the fantastic 'cremino Rivareno' flavour but also tried a cherry, a nocciala and a dark chocolate and grand marnier. All off them were very very tasty. This place is a little out of the way for most tourists,... More

I'm a gelato lover and so far RivaReno is my favorite gelateria in Rome! I really recommend this small unique place...Try "cremino Rivareno" and "alici" flavours...absolutely delicious!

Very, very good gelato. More expensive than others place though. My other complaint goes to the girl who attended me. She said something in Italian I didn't get, and when i asked her about it, she just gave me the face "whatever" and gave me the ice cream giving no space for any other questions. A shame being treated like... More
