Come to the Piazza Republic in the evening and watch the sky darken over the ocean (and maybe chat a bit with the old fellows, some of whom speak pretty good English). And, when it gets dark, have a seat at the Bar Ercole Gelateria and order a Tartufo. This nugget of gelato with a liquid hazelnut chocolate center is a specialty of the region, although no one does it like the Bar Ercole. The owner, Franco, modestly claims that his is the second best gelato in the world, but I'd rate it higher than that. And if a whole one is too rich for you, Franco will be happy to cut one in half so you can share with a friend.

Oh, and the Bar has WiFi; ask for the password and you can satisfy your Internet craving along with your chocolate craving.

Sitting in this beautiful piazza at night with stars all around eating outrageous desserts- what could be better. Franco, the owner, is a warm and friendly host who loves people and wants everyone to be happy.

After trying the other ice cream places in the Piazza this is has that special flavour that the others don't have. This is one of oldest Gelaterias in town and I presume there must be a reason why the people keep going, especially the local people. The pistacchio ice-cream is one of my favourites.

Siamo stati ad agosto: ottimo il tartufo e la granita di mandorla. Da prendere assolutamente il tartufo! We have been in august, top taste is the tartufo and the almond crushed-ice.

We took tartufo and espresso. It tasted marvelous and the service was excellent despite the heat. The piazza gives a cool atmosphere.
