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.

After trying the other ice cream places in the Piazza this is has that special flavour that the others don't have. This is one of oldest Gelaterias in town and I presume there must be a reason why the people keep going, especially the local people. The pistacchio ice-cream is one of my favourites.

Siamo stati ad agosto: ottimo il tartufo e la granita di mandorla. Da prendere assolutamente il tartufo! We have been in august, top taste is the tartufo and the almond crushed-ice.

We took tartufo and espresso. It tasted marvelous and the service was excellent despite the heat. The piazza gives a cool atmosphere.

Do yourself a favour and settle down here for a feast of ice cream to die for. Order the spaghetti ice cream, a macchiato, anything else you fancy. And use the free wifi to post your trip advisor review. There's a nice view out over the sea at the end of the Piazza, and if you haven't shaved for a... More

We went to Pizzo on our way out of Tropea, specifically to try the famous Pizzo Tartuffo. We ordered one original and one pistachio, and I must say the original was way better. I found the pistachio too sweet. The original was simple, with dark chocolate and cocoa, so the flavour came out more than the sweetness. The cafe is... More
