SquareMeal Review of
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.
