We stopped to try the tartufo, which was incredible and thoroughly recommend the pistachio flavour. Franco was very welcoming, with a big friendly smile and warm personality. We've eaten a lot of gelato in Italy the past six weeks...and this was one of the best!...More

We read the reviews for this place and enjoyed our drinks, but the ice cream is rubbish, we were very disappointed. Not sure why every one thinks it is so good!

Great choice of ice cream & a great atmosphere. A lovely place to have a drink or an ice cream or both . You can sit outside or inside . The tree's have lights all over them which i thought is a nice touch.

The original craft ice cream from pizzo. The best dessert from calabria. Eating this ice cream is like living a mystical experience. TRY!

The original tartufo di Pizzo Calabro is fresh made here, in the piazza facing the sea, in the heart of the little town. Unforgettable tasting experience. We enjoyed so much our relax time here!!!
