All those stars are well deserved

Couldn't figure out why a gelato place was the top rated restaurant in St. Pete. Until we went there. Love the huge variety of flavors, the salted caramel is a personal favorite. I've taken out of town visitors and they also rave. Don't go unless you're truly ready for dessert!

This is very popular for good reason, but when it is peak time there can be a little wait even though they are very well staffed. That said you can taste test repeatedly before buying and the gelato will not disappoint

Excellent gelato. Four flavors in a waffle cone for me. Great service, too. I tried salted caramel, coconut, and dark chocolate.

The gelato is very good, and the location is right on Beach Drive where there is plenty of people watching.

This ice cream beats all others hands down. So many varieties and if you are a connoisseur you will want to head straight here. I suggest the violet flavour for something different.

As a person who can not go a day without ice cream, I must say the Gelato here is by far the best I have had!!! A little pricey but worth it!

The gelato at paciugo is always a winer. I have never been disapointed with the quality or service. On top of that the location is amazing. Great to sit on their outside patio either in the sun or ar night. A bit pricy, but worth the splurge
