Making Traditional Gelato For Over 80 Years

The Home of


In London Since 1931

In 1931 Marine Ices founder and gelato pioneer, Gaetano Mansi, opened his first ice cream parlour in Camden, North West London, with a desire to bring the indulgent taste of real Italian Gelato to discerning Londoners.

His reputation spread fast across London, delighting a legion of customers who couldn’t get enough of the authentic Italian flavours of his delicious ices.

Marine Ices’ iconic parlour in Camden became something of a landmark with queues of gelato devotees (travelling across London and beyond) lining up on hot summers days to savour Gaetano’s inimitable ice creams and sorbets.

Today the same ices can be enjoyed in many restaurants, ice cream parlours, quality food shops and delicatessens around the country, not to mention our own iconic parlour in Camden.
