Great product, great flavor, great service, perfect location. What else can you ask for on a summer night in London. Grab a cone with a couple scoops and enjoy the street entertainment. This is one of my favorite spots.

Ugggh.....how disappointing. This place does itself great justice in its advertising campaign but like a lot of organisations it's all mouth and no trousers that just can't live up to the hype. It isn't even on a par with some of the "pop" run gelaterias...More

Even though it was expensive it is still worth a visit if you are in the Covent Garden area as it was some of the best ice cream I have tasted!

I agree with several of the reviews I've seen. Good stuff, but pricey. But hey, it's only the GBP up against the USD. So that 4.95 GBP really only cost me...holy crud...I paid $8.50 for 2 scoops! Crazy me. I guess when you're in Covent...More
