GELATO at it's finest

The help is wonderful, offering tastes of the huge variety of flavors. I've never seen a place where you can actually have 3 flavors on the smallest cone, and it works!!!! So you can mix and match, and try different ones each time. Prices are quite reasonable, and there are comfy chairs, if you... read more

Yes, it's good and fresh. And yes, being on a fancy street means fancy prices. So if you don't mind paying about $10 for two people to eat ice cream, go there. We enjoyed it. Service can be slow, though, as the people in front of you get numerous samples.

After a wonderful walk through the park, stop by Paciugo's for the best ice cream. The flavors available are amazing. The staff is very helpful. The place is very clean and it is right by the water. It's an excellent choice for a dessert and coffee.

You want ice cream? Skip Kilwins. Go here for the creamiest, most flavorful iced dessert in St. Pete. You can pick up to three flavors that they cram together in one small cup, which is plenty. My favorite: dark chocolate, raspberry sorbet and coconut. Heaven!

I know 2 things about Paciugo that you should know: it faces St. Pete's most beautiful waterfront park, and they have by far the best Gelati anywhere! And here's what you order: A Picolo cup with 3 flavors: Coco Coconut, Pistachio and Amarena (Black Cherry chunks). This is to die for! All 3 are unbelievable! I'm going back there for... More

For me, part of the appeal of gelato is the visual feast when you walk in... all those bright colors of yummy goodness laid out before you, just calling your name. It's a far cry from what you see when you walk into a typical ice cream shop. It's almost too pretty to eat, but eat it you must. I... More

I've been addicted to gelato since a trip to Florence. Paciugo is the only place that comes to the delicious, creamy treat I experienced there. Don't be afraid to try any flavor, the staff is patient and helpful, although always busy! Be prepared for a crowd, but don't fret, the line moves quickly! My favorites include the cherry, sea salt... More

Very nice place! Staff very friendly! A lot of people in line, fast efficient service. You can sit indoor or outdoor watching people go by. So the icecream, very large servings, you can taste before. Fantastic homemade icecream in many different flavours. Rich dark chocolate was heaven!
