Chilli chocolate is a revelation, sounds strange but it really works. Other flavours great too. Place was really busy on a cool Bank holiday evening.

Very hard to resist if in the Covent Garden area (especially post cinema or theatre). Best chocolate sorbet anywhere. Also great for coffee or hot chocolate.

I love this place! Delicious ice cream, made with high quality ingredients, in the best Italian tradition. For the experts of good coffee, the espresso is excellent as well, freshly roasted. Every time I pass by Leicester square I can't resist to pass by La Gelatiera to grab a gelato cone. Living in London, this is the best treat you... More

Fabulous and well thought out flavours. Great coffee and cake too. Try not to have seconds. The only downside is that it is pretty pricey but it really is worth it.

The gelato is absolutely amazing! Proper Italian ice cream much better than all the other Italian places in London. Had pistachio and can't wait to try the other artisan flavours! The only downside is the size of the place as it is really small and there are only few seats available.

This place has excellent gelato. They have a few normal flavours all the time (eg hazelnut) but their real strong point is the more artisan flavours, such as fennel, rosemary and orange. The only downside is that you can never guarantee they will have your favourite (unless your favourite is one they always have) as they have so many different... More

Called in here last night for an ice cream and a coffee at 22:50! After a long day of exploring London. Great little find, late night treat 😀 ice cream flavours are amazing and great atmosphere.

My son said this is the best ice cream that's he's ever had in his 6 years. I agree. It's absolutely worth a visit. Phenomenal.

That is the sign outside the door and I think the answer is: yes. My kids "make" us go every trip into London. I have been to Rome, and had great gelato. This place is as good or better. Drop the mic, walk off the stage. This is the real deal.

London is plenty of Italian-wannabes ice cream places... Well, La Gelateria is NOT one of those! Ice cream is homemade and it is incredibly tasty! I had honey, rosemary&Orange zest and basil&chili: I know it sounds weird but give it a go and you will not be disappointed! Highly recommended!

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighborhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
