It's the only place I want to get ice cream from in the City. There is a wide selection of flavours to choose from and the service is efficient and very friendly.

Another delicious gelato from Gelato Village. These men sure know how to make delicious gelato. The pistachio tastes fresh, the dark chocolate has a richness and the milk chocolate is so creamy.

Wow - we must have walked past this place many times and not ventured in over the years - what a terrible mistake on our part ! Having gone in and now sampled the gelato - we are not going to be walking past ever...again! The flavours on offer are wide as you might expect but the quality of each is fabulous. Went for some of the sorbet style pear and melon flavours and they were really fruity not just a whiff of flavour in amongst some ice as you might get elsewhere. Refreshing, flavoursome and in a generous portion. You don’t pay per scoop, more just on cup / cone size and they fill them with up as much as they possibly can! A medium / regular cup was less than £5 and more than enough to satisfy ! Friendly and helpful staff as well who can guide you through this :) Loved it!More

I am picky about ice cream, and this beat my test. The pistachio was lovely. I also enjoyed the lemon and basil. Both are super! They are my favourite ice cream flavours, and I'm picky about them, and this place does a super job!

Gelato Village supplied the dessert at my daughter and Son in law’s wedding celebration. It was excellent and enjoyed by all. They took tremendous care of the bride and groom with their previous 2 postponements and they had four flavours to please everyone. The 2...mums had great fun serving the gelato. This was a great idea for a wedding or any celebration. The staff at Gelato Village were so helpful and efficient. If you are in Leicester do visit them.More

First time in a longtime returning here as I was a regular and being in the area excited to come back. All was fine nice gelato although limited flavours.. staff member who seemed like they didn't want to serve me ruined the experience for me...and left a bad taste in my mouth. A big group had just left the shop, a couple were taking their time trying lots of different flavours right by the glass..said staff member was called over to serve me then told me step back behind the line, no greeting or anything!! Even though the couple next to me were right up by the glass that's fine. After collecting my gelato I had to step over this line anyway to collect it!! And again when paying so that was a bit unnecessary and rude in my opinion. I understand covid rules etc but it can't apply to 1 customer only and not the 2 others standing right there! Unless it only applies to whoever you feel it should fit ....Funny that. The other staff were friendly and polite. You lose custom if you don't have the skills to be polite.More

Delicious, creamy gelato - the best I have had outside of Italy! The array of flavours is fantastic; there is something for everyone. Well worth a visit!

From the choice available to the taste this is not only hands down the best cold treat in Leicester but also caters well to those who don't fancy some gelato. Not to mention the coffee is terrific here too.

Excellent service. Calm atmosphere, efficient and helpful staff. Just a good place to stop for a short break when you out and about in the City. Very convenient location.
