If you ever come near the town of Pizzo you must try the classic Tartufo. My only problem was that I got to come here during feburary. Definitely worth screwing your throat up by ice cream.

I had the tartufo Bianco and the pistachio one. Cute cafe in the main piazza. Creamy tartufi - a must try in Pizzo. Grab some prosecco, too.

Good place for ice cream, free WiFi a bonus. Nice staff and service. Worth a try, good tartufo, though I'm sure they all offer the same tartufo, from the same places! I recommend tartufo original and then move onto their excellent gelatos.

A little touristy but does the trick. Had the tartufo (local speciality), but frankly same everywhere

This is the town which is famous for tartufo. Our pistachio tartufo was so tasty and was a good size too. The ambience of the restaurant was good too and they were always happy. A must destination if you are in the area.

Must visit when you're in Pizzo. We've tried the original Tartufo di Nero, which is just a magnificient ice Cream. I've even had 2, which was too much, but it's without any doubt delicious.

Nice ice cream with a very jovial service. I just found the gelato slightly too sweet to my taste but the flavors are good.

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.
