Blackstock Road, the stretch between Finsbury Park and Highbury, is best-known for its Middle Eastern grocery stores and cafés. Now, an Italian ice cream parlour is throwing some gelato into the mix. Cremeria Vienna, which already has a previous branch in High Barnet, is making a mark with its daily-changing selection of ice creams and sorbets.
The classic Italian gelatos, including nocciola (hazelnut) and fragola (strawberry), are freshly made every morning and sold (or discarded) within 24 hours. Creamy Madeira ice cream is dotted with raisins soaked in vin santo, while ground almonds enhance the smooth, pale green pistachio gelato (made with Sicilian pistachios). The generous portions start at £2 for two scoops. It’s mostly take-away business, but there are two small tables for those who want a caffè with their gelato.

Lovely shop and fabulous gelato. I too thought I'd have to develop a winter ice cream habit - so I'm delighted with their delicious tiny pastries. Go.
Only 3 stars time out?! Did you actually try the ice cream?! Amazing traditional gelato style ice cream. Very reasonable prices. Maybe not the place for sitting in but perfect for take away and an amble. Would highly recommend!
I absolutely love this place. Authentic, handmade Italian ice cream (even better than the one I tried back home in Italy) and the staff is so friendly and lovely. A little gem in Finsbury Park, you must go!
Really good (tried pistachio and the nutty one) and lovely friendly server. Lots of flavours and you can take home in insulated pots as well. Very impressed!
