A Leicester dessert restaurant has closed for good, two years after it launched in the city.
Icestone Gelato, in London Road, is now permanently closed, a spokesperson for the company has confirmed to LeicestershireLive.
The 80-seater dessert restaurant opened in August 2018, and aimed to offer “the ultimate dessert experience.”
Now, it sits in darkness, with the brand’s name having been removed from above the door.
The restaurant served gelato flavours ranging from traditional vanilla and chocolate to more exotic flavours such as pistachio, strawberry cheesecake, bubblegum and popping candy.

Waffles and crepes were available too, along with ‘back to school’ puddings such as jam roly poly and cornflake tart.
Icestone Gelato started in Bradford in 2013, and has branches in locations such as Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.
Leicester became the company’s 12th restaurant, and at the time, Icestone had plans for further locations in the county.
Now, Icestone Gelato joins the growing list of Leicester food and drink venues which have closed for good.
Just last week, Italian restaurant chain Zizzi told LeicestershireLive that its branch in Belvoir Street, Leicester, would not be reopening.
ASK and MOD Pizza have also recently confirmed that their Leicester restaurants have now gone for good.
The Leicester branches of Coast to Coast, Carluccio’s, Cafe Rouge, and Handmade Burger Co have all also closed permanently this year.
