Best Pistacchio Ice Cream

I have been living in Italy for almost 10 years and never had a better Pistacchio Ice Cream. Worth visiting this bar. Try Copa Elisabetta Noto, delicious!

This ice salon is really a monument in amantea. Serving since 1937 they have reached a quality not so easy to copy. Pistache is the best I have ever tasted. Very friendly staff, family owned, they are all there...and the view is beautiful. Crowded on a Sunday evening.

Gelateria Sicoli is a really nice place in de old town of Amantea. It's very relaxed, nice athmosphere and you get a great view! They got lovely icecreams and the flavour pistachio is delicious but also bianco&nero and arancia are favourites. The staff is very friendly. Absolutely recommended!

This bar is a short walk from Palazzo del Clarisse. It shares the views and the ambience...very popular with locals and was very welcoming to us as tourists. We noticed how popular the ice creams were and from other reviews now know why! We missed out this time but for certain wont miss out on the gelati when we return... More

There are many signs that say it, but it's true! Sicoli has the best gelato in town. Their specialty is pistachio, but you cannot go wrong with any of their flavors. On a tip from a local, we also tried the Pistacio Cornetto. This is an extra special treat for anyone who likes pistacios.

Gelato lovers, beware. Go here once and you won't want to go anywhere else. Grew up visiting this town (continue to go as an adult) and recently been converted to the wonder that is Sicoli. First off, it's location is one of the best – in la chiaza (the older part of Amantea). Great spot to get a table outside... More

While in holidays in Amantea, this local gelato store was our every nightout spot ! You have to taste the creamiest icecream of the bay! Orange and panna flavors are particularly excellent. And the price is just ridiculously low for what you get ! The boss is very nice and will proudly show you his collection of laudatory press articles.... More

No wonder it is so crowded. If you ever make it up there, you must try the pistachio ice cream!!! To die for!!! I had an amaretto orange type...delish! Give it a try. I think it has existed since 1937...great little place.
