Larry's is celebrating 30 years in business, and we're celebrating 30 years of enjoying the ice cream! It's a must-visit-multiple-times every time we visit St. Pete. Try the butter pecan - it's delicious!

If you like gelato, go to Larry's. I heard soemone complaining outside about the small portion of gelato they received. I explained this to them, so i'll pass it on to you. Gelato is a very creamy and dense Italian ice cream. When you get a scoop, it is smaller than a scoop of traditional ice cream. Regular ice cream... More

This gelato is amazing and low fat too! You can get different favors on your homemade waffle cone. They have great Italian flavors as well ie... Cannoli,Baci the hazelnut candy,chocolate biscotti just to name a few. They also carry American ice cream, pies, cakes and a lunch menu. You have to try this place when in St. Petes!!

Larry's is a must-do for my family when we visit St. Pete Beach, it's always a stop on our first night & traditionally on our last night...the service and ice cream/gelato/etc. is top-notch. The pistachio gelato is outstanding and my son love the Superman ice cream.

Terrific ice cream and gelato! We went several times during the week, and were never disappointed. Terrific and broad selection of flavors. Parking can be a challenge.

Not only is the ice- cream incredible in taste, the variety and excellent service* makes Larry's the only place to have ice- cream on the beach (St.Pete Beach, FL). *staff are always accommodating and enthusiastic. Despite only being a customer of Larry's on yearly vacations to the beach, the staff, specifically Christine remember the face and are more than welcoming.

Larry's is an institution at st Pete beach. Many choices of ice cream. and gelato. A must have after a day at beach. Old fashioned charm with a varied menu. Waffle comes by the cup. They even serve a dusty rose Sunday.

We went here after dinner and were pleasantly surprised. It was so delicious. I had gelato in a home made waffle cone. If I ever return to the area I would go to Larry 's again.

Love that place! We cannot stay at St Pete Beach without going to Larry's for ice cream. Their choice is mind-boggling! This summer I tried some of their gelato (the lemon flavor is awesome) and their chocolate cake (I know... not ice cream but so good). My favourite ice cream in FL!
