Best gelato

The range and quality of the gelato from here is incomparable to any outside Italy! I love the fact that it is open late. The staff and atmosphere are wonderful.

Great flat whites and gelato out of this world! A hit with both children and adults! We tried chilli chocolate, chocolate sorbet, lime sorbet and salted caramel and peanut butter - all delicious but chilli chocolate voted the best by the whole group. Worth a visit even if you have to make a detour!

We stopped for coffee and ice cream after eating main courses elsewhere. It was excellent. The chocolate, chilli chocolate, cafe latte, Oreo cookies ice creams and the lime sorbet were all amazing. They also serve really good coffee...very good flat whites! All members of the family were happy.

I've had the best gelato ever in london here ! Try the pistachio sorbet, it's just amazing. They also serve other flavours but pistachio is my favorite. If you wanna small portion, try the baby portion, the cone is so cute, but definitely just worth buying small one, you'll get a great big chunk of gelato. Also they happen to... More

Stopped in for a quick coffee on the back of good reviews, maybe we caught the guy running it on a bad day. Very grumpy and without effort made us feel unwelcome. The rest of the staff were cheery, and the coffees were good, however! Could easily see how La Gelatiera would be worth a visit - just not for... More

This is one of many tiny eating places in charming New Row. The are a lot of good ice cream shops around Covent Garden these days, but this little place is worth seeking out for the high quality and unusual flavours of its home-made gelato

This gelato place is a must when we are in the neighborhood, no matter the weather. Great flavours, not a huge selection but they always have 3-5 sorbet flavs with no milk or cream in them, so perfect if on a diet :)

Came here with my girlfriend after wanting some proper gelato to finish off the evening after a lovely meal. Definitely didn't disappoint. Great quality, delicious ice cream and very friendly service. There were also some very unusual flavours which I tried and were also all fantastic. Would def come here again for an ice cream fix in London

Some of the best ice cream I know in London, with a moderate range of very good and sometimes unusual flavours.

Thank James P
