We had heard very good reviews about Gay Odin and so while strolling through the town of Naples decided to purchase some of the treats and sit watching the view. We were not disappointed when it came to taste.

Quite a pity that such an historical (and highly rated) location in Naples did not deliver. We had heard and read such nice reviews of this historical location, that made this a must-stop for some gelato and chocolates while we were at port in Naples on a recent cruise. Overall, chocolate was OK, but the service was probably the worst... More

We spent 5 days in Naples and took the opportunity to sample a wide array of gellaterias in the city. Gay Odin proved to be one of the best.

We did not purposedly go to Gay Odin, but as we walked on the very touristic street (although full of locals too) we stopped for gelato twice. It was excellent! We had the milk chocolate, pistacchio and pear, and all were fabulous. the combination of milk chocolate and pistacchio worked great, and with the refreshing pear it made for a... More

There are quite a few of these chocolate shops around Naples (and also in Rome and Milan now). They are pretty famous here and I couldn't disagree more. First of all, to anybody who knows about chocolate is obvious that to best enjoy it you have to choose the dark kind, not the milk or gianduia ones. Gay Odin thinks... More

There is a number of these gelaterie and cioccolaterie in Naples. This one is in Spaccanapoli, and has a wonderful array of chocolate ice creams on offer. We also bought a couple of their home made gianduie - huge, rich chocolate delights. A treat.

Great place for a gelato stop -- delicious flavours and very good value! Brought home three boxes of their chocolates as gifts -- they were excellent!

I'm a huge chocoholic so this shop was glorious for me. We visited most days during our week long trip for gelato and I bought a few bars of chocolate to bring back. I found the chocolate to have a really nice texture and taste, I recommend the dark chocolate with pieces of orange in the most. The service was... More

Nice looking shops you find around Napoli. Famous for chocolate and ice cream apparently. Not tried the chocolate but the ice cream is superb ( I tried 3-4 different ones). If you like pistachio, it's the best I ever tried and that means something. If you close your eyes you could see them handpicked in Iran, sailing down the spice... More

Heard and read a lot of positive reviews about the amazing gelato they offer and decided to give it a go. The shop was small but can be spotted easily. They offered a large variety of flavours at a reasonably cheap price (2 euros for a small cup - two flavours). The staff were attentive. Definitely worth a visit!
