In a town famous for Tartufo this place has the best. Get there early though because it's in high demand with seats all taken until the wee hours of people enjoying ice cream. Great spot in the middle of the piazza.

Very good service with a huge choice of different ice creams and very good drinks measures! Try the spaghetti ice cream, it's delicious with strawberry sauce!

Here is the best Ice cream and Café bar in Pizzo (as long we know until today). Very good Icecream, you can of course also order Coffee, Procecco and so on. Price level is good and staff is always happy.

Is my second time in Pizzo and I can only tell you that that taste of the ice cream is just divine. The Bar is a must visit place if you ever arrive to Pizzo Calabro as I learned that Bar Ercole is a place where the ice cream manufacture and recipe is a family tradition and the Tartufo, the...

Up to its reputation! We came to Pizzo exclusively in order to have uno Tartuffo originale from Ercole and were enchanted by the its smooth and flavourful taste. It had nothing in common with the one we tried in Tropea. This place is definitely worth a visit if you are in the southern portion of Calabria.

We came here as part of a group. We were told that this place had the best Tartufo. We had eaten some at another restaurant the night before and it did not compare. The portion was generous. The gelato was light.and smooth. Yum! Service was also very good.

This Gelateria in Pizzo is fantastic. Great selection of different ice cream desserts but famous for "Tartufo" which is chocolate ice cream with hazelnut chocolate sauce in centre. Also a bar. Great placed in Piazza Della Republica to people watch
