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.

Avoid the sandwiches, and be sure an not eat there! Just left the place. Ordered a ham and brie sandwich and a latte. The sandwich had no taste and was extremely small-microscopic! Cost over $14. The latte tasted like warm milk-I couldn't even determine if...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!
