Gelato Mio in Holland Park Avenue is the latest in a series of VERY EXPENSIVE Ice Cream parlours in Holland Park / Kensington. A rather scruffy, badly designed place with a toilet located in the middle! £3.90 for two sccops of fairly average ice cream. I think that there have to be better options.

very reasonably priced and generous portions unlike some other gelato places. The entrance is a bit dingy but plenty of seating outside and towards the back.

Really good traditional ice cream and well located at end of portobello market for a post market ice cream. It can be very busy but it's worth the wait.

The establishment was busy on a Saturday afternoon with the queue extending through the door on to the pavement. Service was leisurely. My wife and I both had sorbets and the flavour and texture was among the best that we have had anywhere. The seating area was busy and the tables were in need of cleaning, which was done for... More

We walked in having heard it was in the area, just after a picnic at Holland Parks' Kyoto Gardens. There was no greeting and the place was practically empty, so looking at the selections, we weren't impressed. It may even have been a bit dingy, besides, if I cant find the right variety of chocolate, one must pause and postulate.... More

Those of you that follow my reviews know that I have a very sweet tooth and my weakness and love is ice cream :) If you are not paying too much attention it is easy to walk past this ice cream establishment. Today Saturday about 2pm it was mildly warm there was a queue of some 5 peaple waiting to... More

We took home some delicious illy coffee and strawberry icecream as well as a further tub of hazelnut and pistachio. There was so much to choose from and the establishment is also clearly popular for coffee. Fabulous!

My local ice cream parlour always serves good gelato and excellent coffee. Well worth a visit if you are in the local area.

I went to Gelato Mio on Holland Park Avenue last friday. I had purchased a Groupon voucher which was £9 for one scoop of icecream on a waffle with sauce and a drink of your choice (apparantly worth £19). I had a scoop of the chocolate icecream, caramel sauce and a strawberry milkshake. I have to say, the icecream is delicious!... More

Title says it all. Really, REALLY nice folks with a tasty product. Located on a bust street among many restaurants which will lose dessert customers to this relatively inexpensive choice. Is it Gelato of Italy? No, but VERY close. The servers were the best.
