Visited here with my girlfriend, sat inside and had a waffle which was amazing. Not too big that you're stuffed when you finish it, just right. Ice creams are amazing too making it hard for us to choose a flavour. Needs to be bigger however!

Really amazing ice cream, Very happy to find such a good gelateria in London ! I recommend it to all!

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
