Great tartufo, great service

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.

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
