Sea salt caramel... my favorite one. 3.3£ is ridiculously overpriced for a small (!) scoop, but when you taste the ice cream you will lose any self control ;)

We love gelato after a long day of walking. Was so happy to stumble across la gelateria. Delicious gelato, comfy atmosphere, nice service and hip hop on speakers. Who doesn't like chocolate chip or pistachio gelato to 2pac. I would definitely make this a destination.

I never thought I would find ice-cream as good as this outside of Italy. I had the honey, rosemary and orange, and it was heavenly. Nice and close to the theatres - and open late good after a show!

This Italian family owned business has it right! Lots of specialized flavors and all very tasty! If you have had gelato in Italy before you know what I mean. Come try this place out!

Stumbled across this little place by chance on our way to find another ice cream shop nearby. Lovely selection of flavours. Wished I could have tried more! Dark chocolate and chocolate cake flavours of ice cream tasted really good. Homemade and not like the bought stuff. Will be back again.

This is a tiny, cosy, cute little place with the best vegan ice cream I have ever tasted - the pistachio flavour is out of this world!!! The music was great when I was there too (Depeche Mode). Didn't have any coffee but it smelt really good.

This place was AMAZING! Portion sizes are much bigger for the price compared to other ice cream and gelato shops. You can clearly tell its homemade with every bit of love. You need to try this place! Especially the caramel, vanilla, and hazelnut

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
