Ciccio in Piazza is steps away from Ostuni’s beautiful Piazza della Liberta. This gelateria is a must if you’re visiting the area. We have tried dozens of gelaterias on our trips to Italy and this was one of our favorites. The owner, Talia was very...kind and knowledgeable about her products. They prices were reasonable and portions were generous. There are also tables outside to eat under a canopy while you watch the crowds walk by. They have a nice variety of flavors but we highly recommend the gelato di fichi, pistachio, or stracciatré!More

The best gelato! We stayed in Ostuni for one week and each day after the beach we had a gelato. It's sooo delicious, the flavors are tasty and natural, the people are very welcoming and they learned our preferences after 2-3 days of buying, so...it made us feel even more welcomed. They have vegan options as well, creamy and special flavors. I highly recommend this place cause it is a no miss here! Also it is located right in the center and they have nice cozy benches to sit. Love it! I wish I had taken photos of each one we had, but it was so good we did not want it to melt... The attached pics are from the last night.More

I have read a lot of reviews about this place and decided to give it a try. Ice cream is good but nothing unbelievable. Hazelnut and Vanilla are my “to go” when I try new places, and they were slightly sweet but good. I find...service in Ostuni pretty bad in general and this place is not exception. How can you try to trick on a 2€ cup? I have have asked for a Hazelnut and Vanilla not 80% Vanilla with a splash of Hazelnut. True that eventually he offered to fix it, but is this really how it should be? By the way, a smile from time to time would not be a bad thing!!!More

This does not look like your obvious ice-cream vendor in Italy. It is more of a café with a more limited number of flavours of gelato. We only experienced the award winning gelato and it was stunning! Best we have had in Italy and not...expensive. The chocolate filled cones were superb as was the salted caramel gelato. The staff were very helpful in advising on the flavours. Nice sitting area outside also. Seek this place out if you love ice-cream. Worth returning to Ostuni for!!More

This gelato is fantastic! The sorbets are light and fresh! The lemon is well worth a try. The CARMEL and salt is insanely tasty and something not to be missed! The cones are made fresh on the premises. The quality of everything is outstanding. Above...all everyone is welcoming and friendly to the foreigners ! Yay well !!! It truly makes a difference ! 💕💕💕More

Went here two nights in a row. Awesome gelato. Tried coffee, chocolate, cream, pistachio...some others too. They can do a chocolate dipped cone too. Yum.

Ok, I had a tear in my eye when I was offered the choice of two types of chocolate for inside my cone, both of which flow out of a tap. The server was lovely and helpful. We had the remixed stracciatella, which had white...choc ice cream with milk choc pieces, which was delicious. The second visit, I had a fiordelatte which was silky smooth, although we were so late the chocolate tap was off, which was heartbreaking. This place is a dream.More

Words cannot describe, one of the best gelatos I’ve ever tasted. Lots of flavours all with lovely and fresh ingredients.A must in Ostuni.

Like most businesses in Puglia, this gelateria is family owned and run. The daughter, Talia, I have been told, recently won a prestigious award at the big food fair in Milan. I am not surprised. The flavours are unbelievable and it is light and melts...in the mouth, exactly how you imagine it should taste when you dream of the perfect gelato. There are tables outside too, where you can sit and watch the relaxed crowds wandering around Piazza della Liberta.More
