Reviewed yesterday NEW

just stumbled into this place,came back 2nd time, the pizza and the gelato are all made from scratch , the gelato was above average and the pizza was very good - the only problem - they have only 1 size pizza (16") or buy by the slice , but nothing is ready - you have to wait for the slice-...

Nothing really stands out here but nothing is a turn off except that it seems to close early if it doesn't have customers. The ice cream is good, the paninis so-so, and the pizza, well, go to a pizzeria. Stick with gelato

Decided to stop by for some gelato on our way to our car. They also serve pizzas and other Italian dishes. This establishment is conveniently located near a few public parking lots. Only two tables had customers, but since we only wanted gelato we headed to the counter to look at the selections and waited. And waited. And waited. We... More

We stopped by for a pizza and left really full! The crust was crispy and tasted amazing. The toppings tasted fresh and had a lot on it. My daughter got the pepperoni pizza, but it was a little spicy. But she at the rest easily.

Just a short walk from our hotel we loved this place. The gelato was fabulous and we had great service too. The pizza smelled so good. But we couldn't eat another bite. I would definitely go back.

Pizza was good, sandwiches were so-so but gelato is AMAZING. The cielo flavor, made with balsamic vinegar is so unique - never tasted anything like it. Stelina, with caramel and almonds, is delicious.

I always stop by Rio De gelato when I'm in town on business. As a New Yorker, I know pizza! This is some of the best authentic thin crust fire oven baked pizza anywhere. The owner, who makes pretty much everything himself, and picks the fresh herbs from his own herb garden outside, takes great pride in his product. The... More

I had 2 slices of cheese pizza and a Nutella latte. The pizza was thin crust style. The slices were generous and tasted great. The Nutella latte was amazing! The dessert display had several delicious looking cake slices. I should have had one.

We stopped at this pizza place because it was convenient to the hotel I stayed at and although the pizza was edible there was not enough sauce and had very little flavor. No matter how convenient to the hotel, I will not eat there again.
