A small ice cream bar that feels like a family business. Tried several different flavours during our days in the village and all were great! God prices and fast service!

If you are lucky enough to visit Varenna, please stop here. The gelato was so good that we visited a couple times in the 2 days that were in Varenna. Our favorites were pistashio & the black cherry. So delicious!

There was a good variety of ice cream which could be enjoyed looking at lake Como. I would highly recommend trying the mango or yoghurt flavours!

The gelato at Riva Gelateria is very good, and have a lot of flavours to choose from(and I discover new ones every day). The prices are fair(but not the cheapest, and the portions are quite small even when you order a medium or big one)....More

This gelato is truly some of the best we have tried in Italy. Don't leave Varenna without trying some. The hazelnut was especially good!

We got our ice creams in the early afternoon like think it opens at about 11am but not absolutely sure. Also we were there in July. Hours might reduce after the main holiday season.
