HAVE DESERT FIRST THEN DINNER

If you can't find a desert here you just aren't a desert person. The ice cream flavors seem endless, sundaes, shakes, splits, pies, gelato and for people like me, no sugar added and sugar free. Sit inside or out. Bring the family, the neighbors, the dogs it doesn't matter, but bring them.

Dropped by a few days ago for gelato in a cone and was shocked when the server - who had just taken money from a customer - grabbed my cone with her dirty hand to fill it . So I told her that I wanted the gelato in a cup. After I paid for it, she went back to dipping... More

Larry's is a must stop when we visit the St. Pete area. It's just a tiny little ice cream parlor with great gelato and a friendly staff. If you haven't been, do yourself a favor and check it out!

A very nice shop. The locals were queuing out of the door and that is a great positive advert. We loved it too. Great choices. Great tastes. Very good value

Visited several times during a recent trip. It's a little pricey, but they have anything that your heart desires. Everything that we tried was top quality and delicious.

I love galatto...Dad likes ice cream...our son likes soft serve with sprinkles...Mom eats it all. We found the selection to be vast our selections to be savored. We beat the dinner rush so don't pass it up just because you see a long line. Some things are with the wait and this is one.

We've made Larry's a habit that we can't seem to break. It's always good! There has been a line out the door every time we have gone there, but it moves along quickly.

The ice cream was very good and the service was excellent. They have several gelato flavors to choose from and twice as many ice cream flavors. The only reason I don't rate it a 5 was cause the gelato I had was not smooth and was not very flavorful. It was good but lacked the kind of smooth creaminess I... More
