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

Their chocolate gelato is the best I have ever had. It was delicious and I regret that I didn't have one every day of my trip to Naples. A must!

We tried several of the highly rated Gelato shops in Naples and enjoyed all of them. i was still intrigued by what I had read about "Gay Odin" so we decided to stop in one evening and try the chocolate gelato. For my taste, this is the best gelato I have ever eaten and this includes many trips to different... More
