They say that when Garibaldi and the "Mille" conquered Palermo to unify Italy, the warrior came here to have some refreshment and the chef served an ice cream with the three colors of the national flag.. and the "Giardiniera" was born, a delight of citron, strawberry and pistachio, dressed with candies. Since 1860, Ilardo keeps on offering its traditional recipes like the "Pezzo," a huge piece of ice cream available in various flavors (a best seller is the "Cassata"), or the "Bomba," a giant ball of ice cream. This historical ice cream bar, located in a small room inside the town walls known as "Le Cattive," is a paradise for foodies and lovers of traditional local recipes, who can enjoy their ice cream sitting in front of the sea. - Valentina Caviglia
