Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

This small, simply decorated ice cream parlour is handily located on the northern perimeter of Clapham Common.

It’s a low-key, traditionally Italian affair, with a score or so of the more traditional flavours made by Lorenzo Nardulli and his small team. We’ve found the ice creams here smooth-textured and clean-flavoured – just like a proper Italian gelato should be. They also make cakes (including birthday cakes to order), crêpes and waffles, milkshakes and drinks both hot and cold.

How can you resist gelato? I sure couldn't, even after a huge meal! 

As I'm lactose intolerant, I opted for the Dairy Free Dark Chocolate. It looked the most enticing with its dark brown colour and creamy texture! And it was a great choice. I loved how creamy it was for something dairy-free and it didn't have that grainy texture that some dairy-free desserts have, which I really appreciated. The gelato did melt rather quickly, even though it wasn't warm out but still delicious even when melted! 


You like gelato? I like gelato! If you like gelato as much as I do, then make your way to this simple, no frills gelato place in Clapham. Recommended to us by our Italian mates (they know what they are talking about), this place is serving the best creamy goodness in town. Our go-to flavours that we judge a gelato place by are: 1. Mango 2. Stracciatella and this little gem passed our taste test with flying colours. Needless to say, I'll be back to work my way through the menu.


Nardulli has a good selection of Italian ice creams! The best one for me is pistachio and chocolate! The white chocolate is also good but very sweet...not for everyone. They have dairy free ones as well (or used to).

Their ice cream soothes my soul. Try pistachio and salted caramel combo. Delicious!!

A sweet little Italian-style ice cream parlour perched on the corner of Clapham Common - well located for sunny days! Friendly staff (who will let you try before you buy, if you ask nicely enough) and an impressive selection of flavours, of which I've tried far, far too many (no regrets). The Nutella gelato is pretty amazing!


I am Lorenzo Nardulli the owner of Nardulli.

I really don' t understand why Time Out gave  a so disappointed rate. 

As you can easily see if you google Nardulli ice cream we have been lucky enough to be considered one of the best gelateria in London. 

The endless queues we have in the warm week-ends of the good season  testify the love of so many Londoners for Nardulli Home made Italian Gelato.

I monitor and check regularly what our customers and friends think about our gelatos and I am really proud and touched to see so much passion, support and love for our flavours.

It is very disappointing to see that a popular newspaper  is  so distant from what the public really think.

Hopefully, despite newspapers opinions, everyone chooses for themselves and Londoners have chosen very well. 

Thank you very much  for your support

EHi Time Out I am Italian and let me tell you this Gelato is fantastic, way better of everything I have tried here in London and better than many Italian gelaterias. You gave a total wrong judgement and you should correct it if you were honest . How you could come out with such a score? I mean have you really tasted their Pistacchio or Chocolate? Almpost everything is to die for. 3 star ??? This is heresy.

Nardulli's gelato is delicious and well-priced compared to other ice-cream parlours spread across London. Smooth texture, great flavours and real crunchy cones! Love it :)

3 stars? Are you insane? Incredible ice-creams and very reasonably priced. The affogato (ice cream in espresso coffe) is fantastic.

best ice cream ever! what up with the 3 star rating time out are you crazy? would have this ice cream for breakfast lunch and dinner if i could

Nardulli's has the best icecream i have ever tasted! With a beautiful shop and very friendly atmosphere I would definitely recommend!

Gelato like the best in Italy. Personal favs: zabaione, rum & raisins, and pistacchio.
