This place has the best Gelato I have ever tasted and I love my gelato so I have had my fair share of tasting around the country. Great selections and flavors and fun little stop!

Larry's is the best ice cream in St. Pete. There is a pretty good selection of flavor and it smells heavenly inside the building. Last time we were there there was a bit of a wait, though, because there were so many people there.

We come to Florida every year and Larry's is one place we always plan to come back too. Our children were small when we started to come here. Now they are both grown and ask to come here and visit here without us when they are also in Florida. We love this gelato. Larry's has flavors we can not get... More

Very family friendly. Reminiscent of parlour shops of old. Run for many years by the same family. Selection of ice cream, gelatos, yogurt and cakes and pastries is unprecedented. So good, we went every night of our vacation and even had some lunches there as well. Definately a not to miss place if you are going to St. Pete Beach.

We hit Larry's Ice Cream Parlor probably three to four times in the seven days that we are in St. Pete. They also have pies and brownies. I like the waffle cone with marshmallow cream and chocolate ice cream with hot fudge on top.

The ice cream was great. More expensive than some ice cream establishments but well worth it. There's a reason customers stand in a line wrapped around the outside of the building! Staff very helpful and accommodating to our family who has a child with a nut allergy.

This was our last visit to Larry's. My family and I visited Larry's again this past weekend. Found the same delicious ice cream, and unfortunately, the same rude staff. As customers continued to enter, I saw one older female staff member look up at the front door and say to one of the owners (who was busy making the work... More
