My first time trying gelato

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.

We are from NY State and have been to St. Pete's Beach 3 times in the past 4 years for a vacation. Each time we make at least 2 trips, during our week's vacation, to Larry's! 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.

Excellent choices...our kids insisted on visiting everyday while vacationing in St. Pete Beach! The staff was very friendly every time. When we asked our son what he would miss about the beach, he said "Larry's".

Well, maybe there's a place in the States with better gelato, but until then, Larry's is at the top of our list. This past week my wife, daughter and I spent three days at St Pete Beach (Florida). We checked around for ice cream, and we discovered Larry's Ice Cream & Gelato! What a great way to get the taste... More

We knew when we walked up this must be the place to be since the line was out the front door. We got our turn and ordered gelato and ice cream. Fabulous. It was worth the wait and will definitely go back if we visit St. Pete Beach.

I was disappointed that our serving for gelato was so small and pricy for what you got! Next time I would try the ice cream.
