Service is charming, seating on... More

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.

We stayed in Pizzo for a week and we came here every day to use the wife and have coffee or an aperitivo and of course the wonderful tartufo di Pizzo. We tried another gelateria on our last day, but it wasn't as good. Very friendly service - by the end we felt like locals. There are 12 other gelaterias... More

Come to the Piazza Republic in the evening and watch the sky darken over the ocean (and maybe chat a bit with the old fellows, some of whom speak pretty good English). And, when it gets dark, have a seat at the Bar Ercole Gelateria and order a Tartufo. This nugget of gelato with a liquid hazelnut chocolate center is... More

Sitting in this beautiful piazza at night with stars all around eating outrageous desserts- what could be better. Franco, the owner, is a warm and friendly host who loves people and wants everyone to be happy.
