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!

A great find and despite being in the midst of tourist central is a perfect little escape. Teeny venue, well laid out, intimate and great people watching in New Row and the hairdressers opposite. That's if you can't take your eyes off the hottest boy behind the counter. Even better is the gelato. Probably better than an old haunt in... More

In recent years there has been an increase in gelaterias in London, and my local is Oddono. We found this one by accident on a walk from Trafalgar Square to Covent Garden, and it did not disappoint. We started with a couple of raspberry / mango ice creams for the kids, but I soon got jealous and choose a chocolate... More

When I have seen this place on my way to national portrait gallery I had to stop and look inside because it looked really exotic and cute with its window display. Right after I went in, I have realized that I have made the right choice:). I tried a scoop of a hazelnut ice-cream and a chocolate & figs ice-cream.... More

After just having had a coffee and Portuguese tart I nearly ignored the advice I'd received to try the Honey, rosemary and orange zests gelato here. I'm SOOOOOO glad I didn't and popped in to get one - it was INCREDIBLE!!!! I'd grabbed the gelato and walked out around the corner before trying it. I ended up going back to... More

I love gelato and have tried many of them in London and this is hands down the best one i have tasted, it is amazing! They offer very unusual flavour combinations which are excellent and also traditional flavours that are creamy, rich and decadent. Try it.

I simply adore ice cream. And now I've found the best! It isn't just the imaginative names of the ice creams, or the beautiful way they're presented! This ice cream is in a league of its own: so superior to the coarse and gritty cheaper brands [that I simply don't buy!]. The texture is like creamy silk, the flavours are... More
