Description: Nel 1940, il maestro pasticcere messinese Dante Veronelli rileva dal napitino Jannarelli nel centro di Pizzo il Gran Bar Excelsior, che in seguito cambierà il nome in Gelateria Dante proprio in onore al suo primo proprietario, per proseguire l'attività imprenditoriale si avvale della collaborazione di un giovane pasticcere di belle speranze anche lui di Messina, Giuseppe De Maria, al secolo "Don Pippo", inventore del Tartufo di Pizzo. A seguito della morte del Veronelli, il De Maria rimane l'unico proprietario dell'esercizio.Nel 1950, Giorgio Di Iorgi il quale aveva iniziato la carriera lavorativa dentro la gelateria con il ruolo di cameriere, comincia ad apprendere l'arte della produzione del gelato; quindici anni dopo, in seguito al pensionamento del maestro De Maria, ne rileva l'attività della Gelateria Dante. Da questo momento in poi il Bar Dante viene gestito a conduzione familiare, tramandandosi da padre in figlio la ricetta segreta per la realizzazione dei gelati.

We knew we would have tartufo on our day visit to Pizzo, but with so many places to choose from, we were not sure which caffè to pick. We ended up at this place, we liked the look and the servers were low keyed. We are glad we went here for our tartufo. Amazing, the very best Pistacchio tartufo. And the coffee is also very good.

Thanks to our local friend Chico, we ended our day in Bar Dante. Located at the main square of Pizzo with a view over the square, the fortress and the sea, offers a good service and excellent ice cream desserts. We decided for the original Tartuffo and for the Cassata Siciliana. Tartuffo is a good choice for chocoholics, cassata has a marvellous flavor.

I had seen this recommended for the tartufo, and so prepared to tuck into a lovely chocolatey ice cream. Actually, I tucked into a huge chocolatey ball of ice cream filled with chocolate and coated in more cocoa. Amazing!
