Delicious Gelatos!

Found this little place while on vacation with family, and my niece kept asking me to get homemade ice cream. The entire family ordered 2 scoops of different types of gelatos on to their waffle cones. I had the raspberry and pistachio gelatos. I might say, I had ordered last in a family of five... read more

My husband and I love a good late night snack, and this was our favorite! They have tons of.flavors of gelato, ice cream, baked goods, topping, etc. everything we tried was great!! The employees seemed a little frazzled, but it was almost closing time on one of the busiest days of the year. Will definitely be back!!

This was our first trip to SPB and we managed two visits to Larry's! A little tight inside, but we managed and were thrilled with all of the flavor choices... Many we certainly can't find at home. Definitely worth stopping for a homemade waffle cone and some gelato!

The ice cream and gelato is always good. Being a beach location, it is not uncommon to be waiting in line to be served. The portions vary depending on which server you get, but well worth the wait. Their pies, sundaes and floats all look great, but I have never tried them. The waffle cones are the best! Always fresh... More

Banana cashew fudge gelato. Oh my. And who knew gelato is less fattening than ice cream? We always come back to Larry's for dessert. We love the ice cream and gelato. Worth the stop. Friendly staff, quality homemade ice cream and gelato.

Good chocolate flavors of Gelato. Cute setting and friendly staff. We went there twice and noticed that they also make crepes but we will have to try that next time. Old fashioned feel.

Stopped here during a recent vacation and found very friendly employees. The ice cream was very good. Nice to see a family owned local business still running competing against national chain who's ice cream is not as good.

They gave you plenty. It was nice and creamy, but I found the taste to be bland and and the flavors to be artificial.

Popped in here as found this place on Trip Advisor. We were met by a woman who wasn't very welcoming and was more interesting in chatting to her colleague. The place really needs updating also looks really cluttered yes I understand that sometimes you need more space then your shop can take but this place just looked very unappealing and... More

Awesome place! So many choices had to go back a few times to try everything I wanted and that still wasn't enough! So many unique flavors of gelato. Great ice cream. And homemade desserts!
