This and Snowflake are the two best gelateria

Some of the gelato on offer feels exotic, but have to be tried. The honey, rosemary and orange zest gelato is wonderful. The size of the gelato is also more than enough for a treat. Whether summer or winter: enjoy. The decor is old and less appealing than Snowflake which is in Soho. But the... read more

As I got the chance to taste some of their flavours I was speechless. Interesting comibinations, one of a kind artisan gelato which definitely does not compare with other chains selling ice cream around the city. Surely I'll be back soon!

Hi. I visited the shop yesterday afternoon with a friend and we were left shocked at the male member of staff and his attitude. The ice cream was lovely but his attitude towards us was awful! Probably the worst I have ever had. He chatted and laughed with some girls before asking us what we wanted and looked unimpressed about... More

We stopped in for a quick espresso and mocha. Both were stand outs. The gelato looked amazing with creative flavor combinations. Will definitely return for more.

This quaint little shop in is tucked away in Covent Garden and is truly a gem. Quite small inside, there's very little space to sit down and eat. Having said that, there's not many people usually sitting inside. The flavours are absolutely divine, and this is absolutely the best gelato I've had in London. It's also one of the best... More

Without a doubt this place has the best ice cream in London! If you're lactose intolerant, they have several sorbets including a chili chocolate that is to die for!! The owners and the other people that work there are also really nice. Makes a big difference.

La Gelateria is the best dessert in the West End - do not miss when you go to London! I thought it would be silly to get gelato on a cold day in the city, but turns out the taste and quality offered in every product at La Gelateria made me return almost every day of my trip to try... More

I don't go to London much (probably about once or twice a year) but every time I do, I go to La Gelateria! The flavours are absolutely amazing and some are a bit different to what you might find at your standard ice cream stand / shop but you know that whatever you order, it'll be delicious! This week I... More

Stumbled up this place, it's tiny but makes the most of the space with quite a few seats and good decor. The coffee was really nice, all the ice cream looked delicious. Only downside was the guy serving looked rather bothered that we'd disturbed him!
