Description: An old 50’s ice cream cart, the beautiful Piazza della Repubblica in Pizzo Calabro, and a child called Pippo Callipo: these are the first three ingredients that compose the story of Gelateria Callipo, which is the story of a dream which has now become a splendid reality. In the Piazza children ate cones, tartufi and stuffed hazelnut gelato. Pippo Callipo was one of those children and he dreamed of, one day, producing those gelati, because he felt that that unique and treasured flavour should be shared all over the World. Today that dream has finally become reality, and with Gelateria Callipo and the experience of the Callipo family - obtained with 100 years of successful dedication to quality in the food industry - the antique traditions of Pizzo used for the production of exclusive and genuine products have been revived and the same extraordinary recipes of the past have finally been achieved and produced.

“Tuna Ice Cream?”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

An unusual concept, Tuna and Ice cream sold in the same venue, nevertheless Ice cream and coffees here are always fantastic, particularly after a few hours at the nearby beaches. Gets rammed 5pm ish onwards though. 5 ice creams and 2 coffees under E10!!!

“authentic quality ice cream”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

we found this ice cream parlour by accident and were amazed by the difference between these ice creams and what is sold everywhere else. We had heard so much about the famous local ice cream, but had not really been impressed by what we had eaten so far in Calabria until we came here - these people really do produce authentic quality ice creams and ice cream cakes - one could eat them all day long and never tire there is such a variety, and they are all delicious. The staff also deserve 5 stars as we do not speak Italian and they went out of their way to be helpful and welcoming, not only were they efficient in their work, but were so friendly that they even advised us where to buy the best souvenirs, which were the best beaches, etc. Also, the whole place was impeccably clean. We can definitely recommend this establishment - we came here every day of our holidays!
