Caffe and Pistachio

I was told to try the following gelatto places in Italy, Grom, Gay Odin, Blue Ice, and several other random places. All the places had great gelattos, however, Gay Odin was my favorite. I recommend to get the caffe and pistachio flavors.

Disappointing for what is supposed to be best ice creams in Naples... I came form Paris, France, and without any chauvinism, my standard Berthillon are way way way better... If you want to enjoy ice cream, go to Paris!

If you go to Naples and won't go here for Ice-cream you won't take the taste of Naples away with you! I recommend their ice-cream and their traditional chocolates which are incredibly cheap and tasty. Take many as gifts for your chocolate lover friend!

I wanted to point out that there are eight locations (Punti Vendita) of Gay Odin in Napoli as of this time in addition to the main spot on Via Vetriera, which may not be convenient to all visitors. I'm used to seeing artisanal, boutique (or "fine") chocolates sold in the US (even Godiva) at high prices, so to get a... More

Sadly we were only able to stop by Gay Odin (fantastic name) once on our holiday, would have loved to have tried all the different flavours. Have the strawberry - delicious and fruity it tastes nothing like the faintly synthetic strawberry ice cream you can get at home. If you're a dark chocolate fan make sure you check out the... More

We went to Gay Odin several times during our stay in Naples. We didn't buy any chocolates because it was super hot in August, so we went always for the ice cream. We tried different flavours, never disappointed. The ice cream is creamy and delicious, true Italian gelato. Highly recommended.

I knew this place was famous for its chocolates but my oh my, the gelato is to die for. No air pumped up fake gelato here - it is absolutely fabulously full of flavour. I tried the ricotta and pear and the Fiore di Latte, both of which are some of the best I've ever tried, if not the best... More

This was the best gelato we had while in Italy. I got the dark chocolate and my cousin got the dark chocolate and raspberry (or strawberry - I can't remember). It was rich and creamy and delicious. I want some right now! Definitely try it out while in Naples.

Many Gelato places are not fresh made so after reading the reviews, and randomly passing Gay Odin by, we had to make a stop! I had some sort of Chololate and my husband had Ricotta Pear. SO GOOD! It was also nice that they have some unique flavors outside the normal. We didn't try any other sweets. Their cones are... More
