TARTUFO

Our Tartufo is a true Italian delicacy, we present our time-honored recipe in six flavors.  All are made with our delicious gelati and sorbetti and are encased in a premium chocolate shell.

The word "tartufo" means "truffle" in Italian.

The “tartufo”, in its present shape was born in pizzo in the laboratory of Bar Dante ( around 1952 ) just for chance: following the marriage of some local rich people, Don Pippo ( the maker of this innovative production) found out he had run off of molds and forms used for wraping the ice-cream and as a matter of fact he couldn’t supply the so many guests. 


Then he tried to overcome the problem using his genius: he put a small portion of Heizel ice-cream and one of chocolate ice-cream in the hollow of his hand after that he put a little bit melted chocolate, then he wrapped everything in a paper food sugar moulding it and creating the so well - known shape of a Tartufo which he, in the end, left to cool.

The success obtained earned him immediate fame. The original recipe is still kept safe and jeasously by Master De Maria’s relatives
