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...

Pistaccio flavor was very good, almost like a roasted pistaccio. Other flavors such as Mango and Coconut were nothing special. The main issue though is that they are not producing gelato. There is no creamy gelato base. It is very thin ice milk. This is good if you are on a diet, but not if you crave real gelato. Perhaps... More

They've won many taste award accolades for a reason! Not for the flavour-naive, particularly with such bombshells like the incredible honey, orange and rosemary (a prize winner from 2015), chocolate chilli, basil, rich salted caramel and fennel, mint and orange. Seriously yum!!
