Gelato Mennella

Way back in 1969, Antonio Mennella opened up a pastry shop in Torre del Greco. Fast forward more than 40 years later, and the founder’s sons have turned those humble beginnings into a booming business of sweets and ice cream. Il Gelato Mennella is complete with a modern laboratory which comes up with innovative flavors. All ingredients used are natural and fresh.

3. Fantasia Gelati

Fantasia Gelati

After about 20 years of serving ice cream, Fantasia Gelati earned the prestigious Golden Cone award. This is based partially on the fact that the owners seek to create a multi-sensory experience for their clients, using innovative ingredients such as water buffalo milk and fresh fruit.

4. Rol Gelateria

Rol Gelateria

Two friends, Olga Nigro and Roberta Rubino, are behind Rol Gelateria. This is a top notch ice-creamery which has recently been noted by Dora Sorrentino as one of the best ice cream shops in Naples. They insist on only serving ice cream that has been made with local ingredients, such as lemons from Sorrento. The shop also sells dairy-free ice cream and gluten-free cones.
