Excellent ice cream and espresso highly recommend making a detour from the main streets to find as it's a bit tucked away. Very helpful staff with a good attitude.

On our hunt for great ice cream in London we found this gem! Authentic atmosphere, new and interesting flavours and amazing fresh ice-cream. On a side note, we had never tasted as creamy and fulfilling sorbets. Excellent vegan options.

We just happened upon La Gelatiera after a show and it was perfect. The gelato was delicious and others seemed to agree since there was still a line out the door at 11:00pm on a Friday night.

Lovely find. Really nice ice cream with some interesting choices (I'm having basil and chilli....). And good pancakes too. Highly recommended. Small, but nice

Absolutely adore this place. They do gorgeously creamy gelatos and lush sorbets. Love trying new flavours. Always bring visiting friends here (as well as local ones) and they're all always suitably impressed. Love love love!

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.

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.
