Woohoo...ice cream pilgrimage is complete!!

What can I say? Go to this restaurant, sit outside, order an original Tartuffo (invented in Pizzo so it's only proper that you do so on a visit) then eat it. Next day repeat. And the day after. And the day after. You won't regret it. The End.

The best Tartufo in Italia you find in this beautiful smal city in Calabria south in Italia. It's in a piassa where you can sit outside and enjoy life forever!

Home of the tartufo. You have GOT to try this. Ice cream will never be the same. Nothing like chocolate wrapped in vanilla ice cream, then covered with chocolate powder.

This is our favorite gelateria in Pizzo. The assortment of flavors makes it quite difficult to choose. Luckily, whatever you do decide to indulge in is absolutely scrumptious. This was also our after dinner coffee stop most nights. The servers are friendly, professional and after a few nights we ended up talking with them about their experiences, how much they... More

This is a great place to come and have ice cream and watch the world go by. The ice cream is delicious and we also spent a few evenings just having a drink and a chat with the friendly staff overlooking the piazza.

We have an apartment in Pizzo and this is our local where we come for coffee and of course the fantastic ice cream. The bar staff are exceptionally friendly especially Toto who is our new best friend!

A little on the expensive site but excellent service with fresh food and homemade ice cream. Definitely the best Tartufo we sampled in Pizzo.
