SquareMeal Review of Gelupo

Some say this ice cream shop serves up some of the finest gelato in London and we slightly agree. Mostly milk, with only natural flavour added – Sicilian pistachios, hazelnuts from Piedmont, Alphonso mango – it’s churned fresh daily and served up from this idyllic Italian deli/shop opposite the mother-ship, Bocca di Lupo, just over the road. Goods displayed at the rear provide fantastic present-buying possibilities for Soho foodies: Pantelleria capers, homemade cantucci, panforte and, effectively, the Bocca wine list without the restaurant mark-ups. There are also light lunchtime snacks to eat in (perch at one of the small tables or at the counter), plus takeaway sandwiches of salami with squacquerone cheese, caponata salad, or buffalo mozzarella – not forgetting ace espresso, sourdough ciambella doughnuts and torta caprese. You can now also find a gelupo counter at Vico in Covent Garden.

I couldn't fault this place and it tops all the other fake ice cream places in our city that pretend to be real Italian Gelato. What's more you can have dinner at the delicious Bocca di Lopo before which is just across the road. I found out about this place from a delightful website called which is a blogger going around all the ice cream parlours and she rated this one as the best in London. I had an affrogato with hazelnut ice cream at Gelupo, it was yummy!
