A Scoop of Italy in the Heart of the East Village, NYC.

To taste the difference between the two, visit our flagship Gelatoville NYC store, tasting our secret recipes from Florence, Italy, where gelato has been perfected over generations.

Authentic Italian artisan gelato is a treat for the senses - with its rich, creamy texture and intense, natural flavors, it's a world away from the more common mass-produced gelato and traditional ice cream found in many parts of the world.

Gokhan Simsek, founder of Gelatoville

While visiting his relatives in Italy, Gokhan became infatuated with Italian culture and gelato. He was determined to introduce Italian gelato to the people of New York City. Gokhan's dedication to making authentic gelato led him to travel back and forth to Florence, where he learned from the best gelato artisans. With their help and secret recipes, Gokhan was able to master the art of gelato-making and bring the authentic taste of Italy to his gelateria in New York City.

Today, Gokhan is a successful entrepreneur and the proud owner of New York’s finest gelateria. His story is a testament to the power of hard work and determination, and serves as an inspiration to others who are pursuing their dreams.

The Scoop on Gelatoville

An Immigrant's Dream

Gokhan Simsek, born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey, made the life-changing decision to immigrate to the United States, in pursuit of the American dream.

A World Away from Mass-Produced Gelato

Authentic gelato is made with fresh, high-quality ingredients, such as whole milk, cream, fresh fruit, and natural sweeteners, and contains less air than ice cream, resulting in a denser, smoother texture.

In contrast, commercial gelato often contains additives, artificial flavors, and high levels of sugar and fat. When tasting authentic Italian gelato, the flavors are intense, balanced, and natural, with no artificial aftertaste. In comparison, commercial gelato may taste overly sweet or lacking in depth and complexity.

Gelatoville only serves authentic Italian gelato. Here you can discover a world of flavors and textures that will tantalize your taste buds and transport you to the heart of Italy.
