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

We visited gay Odin due to its popularity on trip advisor and weren't disappointed. We bought a box of selected chocolates for an Italian relative which they thoroughly enjoyed! Would recommend!

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
