Just treat yourself!

If you're expecting some fancy image of an ice cream parlour, then you might want to go elsewhere. It's a classic mom and pop place and nothing spectacular to look at. It's not even on the beach, although it's a short walk, so the location isn't anything to write home about either. But I still gave... read more

We have been visiting St. Pete Beach three times a year for over 20 years. The highspot of our visit is always a few trips to Larry's. So many flavors of ice cream and gelato. Flavors you can't even imagine, the type of flavors you would think up when you were a child. When you open the door you smell... More

Once you walk into Larry's Olde Fashioned Ice Cream and Gelato building, you take a step back into time; very nostalgic! And, a piece of heaven! First you can smell the delicious aroma of freshly backed waffle cones, then your eyes go to the gelato selections and then to the ice cream selections! You are overwhelmed with choices and have...

We spent two weeks in Treasure Island and had to keep ourselves from getting ice cream here. We literally went every other night. So many flavors and everything we had was just amazing! I can't wait for July to head back down and Larry's will certainly be the first stop!

And it's as good as every. Butter pecan and peach were the choices this trip, and they were delicious. New tables and chairs, and remodeled restrooms are a nice touch, but the ole ice cream parlor atmosphere is still there!

This place is--by far--the worst ripoff of an ice cream parlor that I have EVER been to!! Their ice cream was decent-tasting, but you will pay $2.99 for roughly two spoonfuls of ice cream. The environment is just this side of a tent. I cannot believe anyone would give this anything other than a "Terrible" rating. Horrible, horrible place.

Visited multiple times to Larrys. Great choice of flavours and the scoop sizes are huge. Favourites are pistachio and ameretto, but all the flavours are great. Worth a visit if you are in the area
