Ice cream shop Gelupo is run by the same team who run Bocca di Lupo, so you know it’s going to be good. We’ll go even further - this is the best gelato in London. The flavours change regularly - the sour cherry stracciatella or blood orange sorbet are amazing if they’re on, and even the classics like pistachio and chocolate are a cut above anywhere else. Gelupo also have a killer affogato and a deli for speciality Italian ingredients that you’ll want to put in your mouth.
