Gelato Flavours

“Made fresh daily”

The goal of the “Laboratorio Italiano RivaReno” (I.e. the RivaReno Italian Gelato Lab) is to serve to our customers not just a simple gelato, but an authentic Italian Sensorial experience. Our Italian gelato is ultra fresh and produced daily using traditional recipes – but whilst we respect tradition, we constantly search out new recipes. For this reason our gelato production lab is committed to maintain very high levels of quality, freshness and genuineness.

“No flavour becomes a RivaReno flavour unless it passes one simple test: blindfolded, with no prior knowledge, one should be able to pick the flavour immediately.”

Gelato made fresh daily, made with care and with passion: this is the secret which makes our products unique.
