Great chocolate.....even better ice-cream. Well priced and absolutely delicious!!! Set right in the centre of Naples a box of mixed chocolates cost €15 but they are worth every penny. Good service too

We were visiting the palace and ended up walking by this icecream shop. It was absolutely gorgeous! Small inside but the staff were friendly and the icecream tasted great. I had pistachio flavour and I could have eaten a lot more of it. Definitely worth a visit!

We had fragola (strawberry, with an aftertaste of watermelon), foresta (milk chocolate) and stracciatella. Delightful, despite the two grumpy ladies at the shop who were obviously exchanging nasty words about us when we asked what certain flavors were in English. Not that there were 50+ flavors to begin with either... still excellent gelato. Would go back.

The best we had in Naples whilst there! Rich traditional flavours with huge queues. Shop is lacking seating, especially with the heat!

Well, English speakers will titter at the name, but it's a great local confectionery for chocolates and other treats. A local institution. (Note: it's not a pastry shop.)

We saw two Gay Odin locations on Via Toledo and stopped in one for a few candies. Beware of the one with liquor inside-it isn't like American ones-these pack a wallop!

Worth coming to Naples just for this ice cream. Lovely flavours - no artificial tastes. We went back two nights running. Recommended!

Definitely the best ice cream we had during our stay in the city. A rather odd name for a gelateria as it doesn't suggest anything regarding the nature of the shop. The chocolate ice cream was busrsting with flavour.

The icecream here is light and tasty, with several different flavours. I had the vesuvio and the pistachio flavours, they were very good. Definitely recommended.

We went to the shop on the corner of San Sebastiano and Benedetto Croce in the Naples old town. Yes it was nice ice cream but based on the other reviews I expected more. I would say that the natural ice cream shop on via Toledo was much nicer than this ice cream (Mennella il Gelato, near the H&M). Also,... More
