“Surprisingly Skilled Staff and delicious Gelati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Latest trip to London Visited Black Vanilla after reading reviews of poor customer service. Queue was over 14 people long; not surprising on such a hot day, however one young man went a long the queue giving samples of Gelato to keep the queue happy, very impressed, what's more, this man then chatted to the couple in front of me in Spanish, the people a few behind me in Russian apparently when I asked, finally when he served me, after realising I was French spoke to me in French. When I asked after him, he was from London and only 18!

Where have you found him? Also the Gelati was delicious, I can see why the queue did not put people off.

Wonderful choice of flavours we tried salted caramel, coconut, mango - all yummy. Not cheap but a premium product. Highly recommended.

“Usual wonderful experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Yet again a visit here doesn't disappoint!
Chocolate cone with such a strong flavour it's brilliant!
Sadly the female assistant wearing gloves to serve the ice cream kept using her gloved hand to move her hair! Not good hygiene!
