The gelato is good, but not great. However, all of us (adults and kids) enjoy it. Nicely presented array of flavors, except they never seem to have pistachio. 😕 Several inventive varieties that seem designed to appeal to kids, like Shirley Temple, and Orange Gatorade...More

The gelato we had here was not that great. Hubby had the mango which was too sweet. I had the lemon and it was nice and tart. I was actually wanting to have a pistachio gelato (Italian tradition) but they did not have any.

After a bad crepe from Rimini in Beaver Creek, we decided to try the gelato in Vail. The chocolate was delicious. Staff seem not to care if they waited on you or not. There was only 2 other couples eating crepes and ice cream so...More

Rimini is one of my favorite places for lunch when I'm in Vail. It's close to the gondola, it's not crowded and offers tasty crapes and soups. Easy, quick bite and you can get back on the slopes!

This is a cute little place with little seating and a small menu, but really, really good oatmeal! We tried a few other things that we didn't like as much, but kept going back for the oatmeal.

A nice out-of-the-way place in Lionshead, right near the ice skating rink. The service is friendly, the coffee is perfect, and there is a good selection of sandwich and soup type items, all made hot and fresh for you. Save room for the wonderful gelato...More

This place is tucked away in Lionshead but it's worth seeking it out. They had a comprehensive gelato selection and lots of tasty beverages and coffee. The staff was friendly, although they got a bit flustered with a rush of customers. If you want great...More
