Tried Basil Chili and Hazelnut kinds of their Gelato, with really great and natural taste. Small but cosy place, worth visiting at least once per visit to London.

We had stumbled upon La Gelateria off Upper St. Martin's by accident on 5 July and we were so intrigued by the available flavours that, finding ourselves back in the same area the following day, we decided to go there again. We were seated in the ice cream parlour when I saw something absolutely stomach churning. One of the staff... More

Not only has this cafe won many awards for their delicious gelato but they have gone out of their way to offer many gluten free options and they are fantastic as well! GF brownies, peanut butter bars and even GF waffle cones to try their amazing salted caramel gelato. Great place to grab a nice coffee and a treat in... More

The Popcorn Ice cream is to die for! Definitely highly recommended. Om nom nom. Generous portions, too.

Found this place by accident, wonderful creamy gelato in a range of flavours. We tried the bacio, vanilla and pistachio. All beautiful and just as good as we've had in Italy. Staff were friendly, the café had a good vibe although it was busy.

Don't normally review places that sell ice cream but I googled best ice cream in Covent Garden and it sent me here. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed. Definitely recommended if you're after an ice cream fix whilst shopping or sightseeing.

The ice cream flavours are unusual but it isn't unusual to ask for a taster in an ice cream shop. When we did ask we were abruptly yelled at and told "You can only try 2!" We only wanted to try 1!!! The tasters were given at the end of a thin wooden coffee stirrer, the ice cream at one... More

Amazing little place with fresh and very creative ice creams and sorbets. The sorbets are so good you actually doubt it's not ice cream. The dark chocolate and chilli is amazing. It goes well with their coffee and their naught pain au chocolat

I have not yet found somewhere better for ice cream in London. Everything we had here was great - salted caramel, pistachio and the dark chocolate sorbet were all excellent. Given the central location, right in the middle of covent garden, and near all the theatres, this is far better than you could possible expect, and much better than anywhere... More
