Come and enjoy the perfect sweet treat called Tartufo, an ice cream dessert originating from Calabria. The traditional Italian dessert, which means trufflein Italian, is comprised of a flavour of ice cream with syrup in the centre and then covered in a shell made of chocolate. Lisa and Tony, Pidapipo owner, have developed two Tartufo flavours as part of the collaboration; Hazelnut gelato with gianduja centre, covered in crushed hazelnuts and a milk chocolate shell; and to make life a little sweeter, a fior di latte gelato with a coffee centre, covered in white chocolate shavings. Both tartufo flavours will be available at ITALiAN ARTiSANS ongoing and all three Pidapipo stores (including Uber Eats) for one week from 5 April. Be sure to book your next dinner date in, as it will most certainly give you a taste of Italy right in the heart of Melbourne.
