    This is the most wonderful place! Rio De Gelato has the best gelato and pizza and biscotti we have ever tasted. Everything was fresh and delicious! The owner and his wife and son are friendly and we will definitely go back again. We live in southern OK so we won’t get to go near often enough! We had our honeymoon on the River walk and one of our fondest memories was going every evening to Rio De Gelato!

    I thought I had tasted great pizza before I ate at Rio de Gelato; but I hadn’t. No pizza I had ever eaten before compared to what I ate this weekend. You can truly taste the love and passion that goes into every homemade pizza and cup of gelato. The owner and his family are all very welcoming and treat you like you just sat down at their family table. I can honestly say I have never been treated at a restaurant like I was here. It’s amazing how complete strangers can make you feel like family. Thanks for the great food. Eating another slice of your pizza would be well worth another trip from Florida to San Antonio.

    We stopped the evening prior to leaving San Antonio. Everyone wished we had found this place earlier in our trip. One word–OUTSTANDING!!! We were greeted with “try every flavor”. Yeah, right. Well, we tried most of them before purchasing. We were even given tastes of flavors that were still “in the back” (just finished and not in the display yet). Outstanding service, too. My daughter said it was like eating fruit salad, only in gelato. After reading other reviews, I regret not trying Rio De Gelato’s pizza. There were five people in our party–and every one would highly recommend Rio De Gelato.
