Good ice cream!!!

Good ice creams. The service ladies were very patient and allowed us to try many different flavors. The cookie cone was not the best I would not recommend it. Stick to your regular waffle cone.

I've been going to Larry's for 25 years now and it's become tradition to visit everytime we go to St Pete. While it is cramped inside you can't find better ice cream or more variety.

I loved the selection of flavors and options for ice cream, gelato, and sorbet. There were many unique flavors i have never tasted before, and I loved the ones I picked (mango sorbet and raspberry white chocolate cheesecake gelato). However the ice cream was double the price I'd be willing to pay if not on vacation. I know it's a... More

I have not had great gelato since I was in Italy! It's not real Italian Gelato but it comes close! Nice work, Larry! We will be back next time we are in St. Pete Beach! Thanks for the unique experience. The waffle cones are really yummy!!! Four stars!

Banana foster gelato was great. My son had the death by chocolate sunday. Delicious. It was a little chaotic looking at the flavors and ordering but it was extremely busy. Obviously the place for icecream in St Pete.

Their gelato is delicious, and the staff is really nice. However we limited how often we went because it is pretty pricey.

It is an amazing hometown ice-cream store. They have ice-cream, soft and hard; food; and gelato. The gelato was my favorite!!! If you are... More

Gelato was amazing... Seemed a bit expensive for a small scoop, go for a cone for more product. If you like old fashioned ice cream shops, this is for you.

I had pistachio, coconut fudge and peanut butter cup in a waffle cone and all three were excellent. They're doing some renovations which is good to see.
