The original "Tartufo di Pizzo "

We had the original black Tartufo with dark chocolate and a chocolate liqueur heart. For sure one of the best Tartufo in town.

Excellent Tartufo and very friendly staff! You will not get disappointed! My daughters tried some other ice cream and they were both very satisfied.

We had the best tasting tartufo in Calabria in this gelateria! Both Tartufo Bianco and Originale are a must.

Friendly and genuine :) Always good service and the gelato is stunningly good. Also enjoy the Italian Style breakfast with a Caffé and a Cornetto (con crema, marmelad or chocolate). During the evenings you can sit with a glass of wine and enjoy the company at the piazza, aka The Livingroom of Pizzo.

Great tartufo, friendly service and a waiter who loves Led Zeppelin and Genesis (especially pre Phil Collins). Well worth a visit.

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.

Great service mind and very pleasent crew that drove us back to Borgonov in the middle of the night. A memorable night out! I recommend Ercole for everyone that visit Pizzo.

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!
