Best gelato ever

Came 4 nights about of 4 nights staying in St. Petersburg. Mediterranean Sea Salt is delicious. Cookies and cream, panna cotta, hazelnut, chocolate all tried and delicious. Had a decaf cappuccino which did not disappoint.

We went today again for the best gelato this side of Italy. Well, better than a lot of what we had in Italy. They have so much to choose from. Lavender gelato, Sea salt and caramel, chocolate and so on. Smooth as silk. Mouth watering flavors. Sit back and let the flavors envelope you in the real Italian gelato.

Had to leave the outside seating area because old folks don't care! They were smoking like it's not a big deal for kids or non smokers! Would love to see a sign!!!

I live in the condo above the restaurant. Have eaten gelato there dozens of times. It is the best in St Pete and about as good gelato I have seen elsewhere. My favorite is the amaretto!

Dare I say this is the best gelato found in St Pete?! I mean, you can get a piccolo (small cup) with three flavors! That's amazing! And the pistachio is always my favorite. I've never been when this place wasn't packed but don't let the line discourage you because they move fast!

Traveling often to Italy often, makes it hard to appreciate the American version of Gelato but Paciugo is really quite good. There are a lot of favors to choose from and the black cherry and hazelnut are two of our favorites. The environment is clean and when not too busy fun to relax in. There are also other things to...

Ran in out of the rain and got a small gelato, which turned out to be big enough for two! They will let you sample any flavor and it is worth it to try them!

I've had better gelato but what we ate here was okay. The raspberry and the limeno was quite tart when I would like to have tasted a little more sweet. Too be fair I could have tasted it first butnhavingbhad gelato before I didn't feel the need. It was super busy but the staff were very pleasant. Very expensive.

After a Saturday with great nieces in the park we decide for a sweet treat....the gelato and cookies made two little girls very happy! Aunt Donna was pretty happy with her double scoop of mint chocolate chip. Friendly staff and the best gelato.
