A London Story That's Produced The Best Ice Cream Café In Hammersmith

Suzy Bertotti and Diego Alfonso of Bertotti Pure Italian

You know how it is. You wait for one high end ice cream parlour to open and then two come along at once. This one is in Hammersmith Grove and is called Bertotti Pure Italian. It’s excellent and deserves our support.

Suzy Bertotti and Diego Alfonso are two young entrepreneurs. They have invested their saving to supply the residents of Hammersmith with some genuinely beautiful ice creams, delicious coffee and lovely sandwiches, bagels and cakes.

Diego is just 24 and is originally from Columbia. Suzy came from Brazil and having met in London they set out to build their dream business on Hammersmith Grove. Diego tells me he fell in love with the area after working a few doors away at Chez Kristof. Together, they have created a café that has a relaxed and happy ambience which is a great addition to the neighbourhood.

They both explain that their ice creams are in fact Italian gelatos and sorbets which are served slightly warmer so the taste buds can really get to grips with the natural flavours. Those are induced by fresh fruits, and an array tempting ingredients. I tried the rum and raisin and the cherry which were both delicious.

You can visit Bertotti Pure Italian at 87 Hammersmith Grove, London, W6 0NQ. You can ‘like’ them on Facebook here and log onto their website here.
