“Delicious!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Gay Odin has a number of stores in Italy. They are mainly concentrated in Naples but I believe there are a few further out in Rome and Milan. The ice cream is beautiful. Some of the best ice cream Naples has to offer, if not the best. The flavours are not the generic ones which you find in most places, which is great if you want to try something different. Some of my favourites are latte e canella (cinnamon), Gianduia bianca (praline), mandorla (almond), cocco bello (coconut). I'm not a fan of chocolate ice creams but theirs are so tasty. I don't think I've ever tried one of their flavours which was less than perfect! They also do a seasonal flavour of pastiera napoletana which is good. While their chocolates are rather expensive, they are made with a very high cocoa content and are well worth a try! This is a must do while you're in Naples - even though it can get a little busy at times I would advise the Gay Odin store on spaccanapoli for the best ice cream selection. Enjoy!

“Ultra-rich ice-creams for chocolate lovers”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is a high-end chocolate house and they sell amazing rich and creamy ice cream.
Glatos here are like cold/creamy version of full-on chocolate.

If you are into fruity choices, this is not the place, but if you'd love chocolates, this place is a must try in Napoli.
It's pretty heavy, I felt more than enough by ordering the smallest cup (2 flavors).

I had
- White choco hazelnuts
- Chocolate with orange peel

Hmmm that was yum!!!

“The forest is the Best”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

All their chocolate is great, the winter hot chocolate is unbelievably
dense and black, the summer ice creams are very good, but their specialty, the Forest Chocolate, is something people should try once in a life...

“The best gelato”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This was my favorite gelato of any I tried in Italy! Service was quick, and there were no crowds on either of my visits. The stracciatella flavor was the best!
