You will pay for your gelato first and keep your receipt for when you get to the counter. We tried the coffee, coconut and vanilla. The coffee gelato was amazing. The other flavors were good, but the coffee one was great

Truly exceptional. No words can describe and nothing can compare. Delicious, smooth, soft, tasty, pure heaven in a cup or cone! The almond & pistacchio in particular were out of this world. 🤤

Avoid sorbets, they don’t know how to make it, it does not taste like the fruit, only sugar. Chocolate tasted like industrial chocolate powder. Most of all we are really not well received : rushed to choose a flavour the minute we walk in even...though we are in march in an empty store !!!!! Try ice cream at gay-odin : way betterMore

This is near Café Gambrinus in Naples so it's easy to find. Great selection & quite big portions; there's not a lot of places to sit as it's located right on Via Toledo so be prepared to stand just outside or find somewhere else with...seating. Good selection of flavors and just enjoy the gelato in this historic but noisy part of the city.More

One of the best gelato artigianale ever tasted. I reccommend trying the Pistacchio ice cream. They have a number of interesting flavours. All at reasonable prices. Will definitely visit again.

The most rude staff we have come across in the whole of Naples at the end of our weeks’ stay. After being completely ignored by the woman on the till and the woman behind the counter (both just walked off), we spoke to a woman...who had turned up and sat next to the till with her coat on, and she almost shouted at us and just kept sticking her finger at a board on the wall which resembled nothing we’d seen before in any of the gelato parlours that week. Her facial expression, mannerism and words, all in Italian, were just not nice. So I told her so and walked out. No wonder the place was EMPTY and the other parlours we went to next we’re all full, friendly, and very nice.More

High quality gelato, made properly - in Naples, it’s the best alternative. You won’t remember it forever, but it’s more than enough to enjoy at the moment😋 Highly recommend to try nut tastes (especially pistachio) and “Cremino al sale”.

A visitor of Naples will soon realise that the city is full of pastry-ice cream shops. Pasticherie that also offer gelati and gelaterie that also offer a variety of traditional sweets. But Mennella is a purely gelato selling place, and in my opinion is one...of the best Gelaterie in Italy. Here, gelato making is a form of art, using the best local ingredients and thanks to their masterful technique their product is a work of art with divine taste. Without artificials or colorings you taste pure and intense flavors, made by genuine, fresh and natural ingredients. Nut flavors in particular - almond, hazelnut with whole nuts, walnut and pistachio will have you coming back for more and as it is for locals Mannella will become also for you the most appreciated Gelateria in Naples.More

I have never ever eaten such a delicious ice - cream in my life. I have tried pistachio and turkish nuts. We went back on an other day just for the ice cream.

I visited this gelateria a couple of times during my 2 visits to Napoli, the first one being in November 2018, the latter one in April this year. I was never disappointed, nor were my relatives. They simply make FANTASTIC gelatos here. My personal favourite...flavours are the coconut and yoghurt ones-beautifully balanced in terms of sweetness and super creamy in texture..To die for...More

Great, awesome gelato, as every Mennella. Very rude cashier (a lady). Bad attitude to the clients and a closed face. Never coming back on this store here at via Toledo. But for sure in others Mennellas stores.
