If you want a different flavour other than typical chocolate, vanilla or simple pistachio, this is the place. Very small gelateria but with very special and delicious flavours. Its a must if you want a real kind of italian gelato in London. Something really hard to find!

This place is easy to find, very cosy, nice atmosphere and very nice staff. Best thing about it is that they offer you a sample of it so you know what to chose. However for a proper ice cream place I was looking for more diversity in flavours which this place didn't had (they do have around 10 but I... More

Great like ice cream parlour/cafe in Covent Garden. Great coffee wifi, free water, camp music, friendly helpful staff. What's not to like? Amazing, unusual flavours - chilli and basil, honey, rosemary and orange to name a couple. Deelish. And the place wasn't mobbed with tourists like the place around the corner.

This little gem is so great. They have amazing flavours that are true to taste. My favourite is the peanut ice cream.

A very small shop selling fabulous gelato and various coffees. They have a few tables and places to sit, but many take away the small containers which are generously filled to overflowing. The hazelnut gelato was the best we have had for a long time. Highly recommended.

Great find. I love ice cream but so many "parlours" serve up average ice cream with too much emphasis on sugary sauce and toppings. This place focuses on home made ice cream and is a true ice cream lovers paradise. Classic and interesting flavours, great service, great coffee. My kids loved it and so did I. I wish I could...

Absolutely delicious gelato and some unique flavours. The rosemary and honey is award winning for obvious reasons. If you like ice cream you will love this place!

I am a regular visitor of La Gelatiera. on this occasion I was served by Natalia and I had the dark chocolate with chilli. We had a lovely chat as I was the only customer in the shop - which has never happened before, but it's to be expected when it's a cold day in February and you're the only... More

As a self confessed ice cream lover I was very wary of some of the vegan gelato on offer in the shop. How can you have a creamy gelato with no milk and cream?! However this said I went veggie 6 months ago and although I haven't gone completely vegan I do try to substitute dairy products where possible. And... More

Lots of interesting and creative flavors, and the real thing did not disappoint. Our server was patient and gave us several samples before we chose. We are still debating whether the chocolate or the chili chocolate was the best. We decided the most creative flavor was the fennel, but when you only have one shot, you have to stick to... More
