Reasonably priced dessert with friendly service! Only a few small tables to sit down, so maybe limited during busy periods. Would recommend.

Really enjoyed their Gelato and their service. You only need a small taste as it is so rich, perhaps they need to add something like boba tea to help bring in more money... I hope that they stick around for a long, long time!

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
