“Excellent gelato!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

We stopped here based on a recommendation from a local, and were not disappointed. The gelato was superb, and served in creative ways. I also had a delicious tomato and mozzarella sandwich. Wife's gelato was a tremendous artistic creation, with various fresh fruits. Busy area with lots of tourist trams passing through. Local back streets in the area were very interesting watching the locals make fresh pasta.

“Fabulous gelati”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Stopped here on a tour with locals who recommended it as the best gelato in Bari. They were right. Be sure to wander the streets nearby to see the nonnas making pasta on the side streets.

“the icecream is good but the place is a classic touristic rip-off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

You can have the best ice-cream in the world (and it's good here but I have had much
better ones in other places) but if you are not clear with the clients about prices I call it a rip-off, and this spoils everything else. So avoid to seat at the table or you'll be charged 4 euro for a small cup (in Italy generally 1-1,50 euro per scoop), get a "cono" at the counter and ...run. The staff is clearly trained not to be clear with tourists, above all foreigners, even the menu is not easy to be read. Locals instead know better, of course.

“The best ice cream in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I live in Bari and i tried a lot of ice cream shops or "gelateria". At Gelateria Gentile i found a fantastic ice cream in different flavours. But what is so special is that this ice cream is made with fresh fruit, real nuts, very tasty cacoa: top quality ingredients.
It doesn't care if you're used to ice cream or not. You will for sure sense the difference between Gelateria Gentile's ice cream and all the rest.
In case you're not in the mood for a traditional ice cream, you can ask the very nice staff to suggest you something else. The chef will be there to prepare Crepes, milk shakes and much, much more for you!
