Amorino Gelato Italiano

After a meal at Bistro1 in Soho we stumbled across Amorino, an ice cream parlour serving authentic Italian gelato on Old Compton Street.

Italian ice cream – amareno cherry (bottom left) + pistachio (diagonally above)

It’s £3.50 for a small cone (or cup) and you can choose up to four flavours from a handsome range of over 24 ice creams and sorbets.

Each scoop of hand made organic ice cream (free from artificial colours and flavours) is carefully squidged in to a petal shape, to form a rose.

I chose amarena cherry, pistachio, Madagascar vanilla and yoghurt (all divine!).

Our decision to skip dessert in the restaurant where we’d eaten dinner proved to be a good one.
