Gelateria & italian cafe at the heart of Richmond, LONDON

About Danieli

Hidden in the heart of historic Richmond-upon-Thames, on the ancient alleyway that is Brewers Lane, you will find Gelateria Danieli; home to Richmond’s finest Italian ice cream for almost 20 years.

But we aren’t just about gelato. We also serve real Italian coffee, legendary thick hot chocolate, and even have our own chocolate shop.

Gelateria and Italian Coffee Shop

Gelateria Danieli

Springing from Italian roots, Gelateria Danieli is a family business that grew in the heart of Richmond. Carlo and Bridget, with their passion for authentic gelato, noticed that this Italian delicacy wasn’t widely available in the UK and decided to do something about it… much to the delight of​ Brewers Lane and its visitors!

Gelateria Danieli opened in April 2005.

Danieli on the Green

In 2011, they decided to take over the successful House of Chocolates on the picturesque Richmond Green.

At the Danieli chocolate shop on Richmond Green, we celebrate all things chocolate with figures, drinking chocolate and novelties. Our manager Jo has been working in this location for 15 years, and with Bridget’s nutritional expertise we also cater for customers looking for dairy and gluten free treats.

We offer a selection of both local and international chocolates and specialize in creating beautiful gift wrapping, and we can also provide orders by post.​

​In summer we offer both chocolates and ice cream. Whereas, in the winter we dedicate the shop to a vast selection of delicious chocolate and sweets, wrapped to suit any occasion.
