A passion for italian gelato
is the family tradition
The origins of the Antica Gelateria Gentile date back to 1880 and to the story of Michele Gentile, descendant of a family of pastry and gelato makers.
The immediate popularity he received with his granita led Michele to open a small kiosk in Bari, in the south east of Italy.
In 1930, Luigi was born, known to everyone as Gigino. He learned the art of gelato making from his father and the art of pizza making from his uncles.
Gigino opened the Pizzeria Gelateria Gentile and along with his wife Laura and his daughter Chiara, he distinguished himself because of his delicious products.
In that little kiosk, Michele passed on his art to his son Francesco who, in the 1920s, opened his own business.
This is how the Pasticceria Gelateria Gentile was born, in a renovated location that was characterized by the usual quality and hospitality.
CHIARA, HER CHILDREN, AND GELATO
In 2009, Chiara and her children Viviana, Fabio, and Francesco brought the Antica Gelateria Gentile back to its historical location in Bari
Over time, the ancient art comes to US. Gentile's recipes live again in NYC: a new adventure starts.
