What They’re Known for: Rimini is best known for their gelato and the variety of flavors they offer. You can choose from flavors such as birthday cake, Dr. Pepper, and more.

What to Watch for: It’s important to watch for creeping costs when you go into Rimini’s. The items are reasonably priced, but it can be difficult to only choose one gelato flavor or one menu item. It’s not even that you’re going to break your entire trip budget, but you may end up surprising yourself. You also need to keep an eye out for seating as the restaurant is small and seating can be sparse when Rimini’s is busy.
