If you are looking for a dessert, then look no further as this is the place to be! They have ice cream, waffles, crepes and beverages. I had a crepe with chocolate sauce (£5), however there wasn’t much chocolate sauce and the crepe was a bit dry as a result. My friends had a crepe with Nutella, and they said... More

I love authentic pistachio gelato, and this is the best I've found. This is the second time I've returned to this outlet, and I have yet to find a better one. Oddono's comes close, if you are a pistachio gelato aficionado. There are also some wackier flavours and my wife loved the basil and chilli, and having once made basil... More

Literally one of the best ice creams I've ever had (closely tied with Mary's Milk bar in Edinburgh). Please don't eat the Honey, Rosemary and Orange as I want to eat it all. Staff are friendly and we went twice in a few days and managed to find a table easily both times.

We have been to the shop in Stratford and some of the flavours tasted old as they have been there for a long while. Today I feel nauseated, if it is not food poisoning, we are nearly there. It is actually an insult to Italian ice cream.

I studied abroad in London and just wanted to some chocolate chip (Stracciatella) gelato. This is hands down the BEST I have ever had. So so delicious and you get a nice portion size. I highly recommend if you are in the covent garden neighborhood.

The staff at this place are rude. They didn't seem to want to give good service to begin with but after finally getting the guys attention and getting one serving of gelato for the other person in my party, I asked to try a some flavors. He lets me try a couple flavors. Then he takes a second spoon and... More

Having won numerous Great Taste Awards, Le Gelateria was in my list to visit when in London. And it did not disappoint. I tried two flavours, the Sicilian Pistachio Sorbet and the Tonde Gentille Hazelnut Gelato. Both are in the Great Taste list of 50 foods to try in 2015. And they tasted so good that it felt as if...
