This year’s beautifully sunny spring (well, sort of until yesterday) has seen queues lined up to indulge in classic gelato recipes. You can watch their alchemy-like ice cream making taking place in the kitchens via a glass panel at the back of the shop. Having the factory in the building means that the preservative free gelatos and sorbets don’t come any fresher - making the Fulham shop the best place to visit.

The pistachio gelato is amazingly good. And the sorbets are whisked so quickly during the making process it gives them a misleading creamy taste despite being diary free - I recommend the strawberry. The menu varies slightly as the seasonal ingredients change.
Carlo Del Mistro was in his twenties when he started Gelato Mio with the stated goal of restoring the Italian gelato art to its former glory. He has worked with master ice cream makers from
compile a range of classic dishes and now has eight stores around the capital. Italy
It is encouraging to see entrepreneurs such as Carlo do well in this economic climate. It’s particularly good to see a retail business like this expanding by breaking new ground in a fairly old industry.
