Delicious Gelato

Stopped into Paciugo for dessert after an Umami Burger next door. Their Coffee Chocolate Chip was pure heaven, not to sweet, but great true coffee taste and nice contrast to the dark chocolate chunks. My friend had salty caramel, also very nice.

After a day of sightseeing, we decided to head to Hermosa Beach to unwind and find some sort of sweet treat. Staff here was really friendly and patiently allowed lots of tastes before we made our selections. My daughters had chocolate M&M, and birthday cake. My wife had sea salt caramel and I had a purple fruity berry flavor along... More

Amazing selection of flavore and simply delectable. I enjoyed 3 flavore: lavendar vanilla, pistachio almond and chocolate chocolate chip (I think I have names correct). Now I have just discovered there are a couple locations in my state also....I will be looking forward to a visit when I am in their neighborhood. Highly recommend!

While walking down Hermosa Beach, we stopped in at Paciugo for an evening treat! There were over 20 flavors (they will let you sample!) and each one that we tried was awesome! Three flavors will fit in the smallest cup and that will fill you up! There is a nice place to eat your gelato inside and outside! Highly recommend!!

I’ve now been to Paciugo twice and had a great experience both times. The Gelato that I’ve tried has been delicious! I do think that the prices are a bit high; however in the main strip in Hermosa Beach, you should not be expecting a bargain. I did see elsewhere in a recent review where a guy felt like he... More

We stopped in Paciugo to buy some water bottles but the show stopper was the beautiful display of HANDMADE gelato, which I fantasized about eating. We got in line, but only so the kids and hubby could get a chalice size serving. But then, as I stared at the menu, trying not to allow the gelato to lure me in,... More

Always stop here for a gelato. Nice clean shop with very good service. Always have a very wide selection of gelatos and Italian ices. Very good for families.

Nice little gelato place along Hermosa Ave. Tons of unique flavors of both gelato and sorbet. They also serve cappuccino which my daughter said was good. Being from the midwest - where no one even knows what gelato is - I can't comment on whether they have the best gelato or not, as it's the only gelato I have eaten.... More
