Food and drink
I’d never have just one flavour - one of them would be chocolate though; high-quality Valrhona chocolate, the choice of many top chefs, is used here. The pistachio gelato, with pieces of bright green nut, is especially good, so too the hazelnut flavour. Italian gelato is lighter than American-style super-premium ice-cream but if you want something lighter still, there are sorbets such as coconut, mango and strawberry available, and dairy-free gelato made from soya milk.
A simple gelateria with a few retro-chic stools where you can perch.
A small street of foodie businesses a few minutes from South Kensington tube.
Expect to pay £2.50 per scoop – not cheap but not the most expensive in London either.
