You don't have to go to Italy if you want to enjoy wonderful ice-cream or sorbet in good weather or a beautiful setting.   Glorious Richmond upon Thames is a treat to visit on many levels and an additional reason in the summer...

Authentically-run, Gelateria Danieli is definitely a contender for the best icecream in London. Helped (or hindered, on the weekend) by the fact that it is located in a pretty lane just behind beautiful, traditionally English - cricket and all - Richmond Green.

For me, the sorbet is the star turn, especially the luscious super-rich flavour-packed chocolate variant. Passion fruit is exquisite too. One scoop goes a long way, fortunately! The only downsides are the weekend queues and the fact that you can't rely on them having your favourite flavour available on every visit.
