The perfect way to end a night….

Our daughter has lived in St. Pete for 2 years; and every single time we go we make a point to get gelato at Paciugo. It NEVER disappoints. I am a huge fan of the Pistachio and the Chocolate Crunch. (It may be called Chocolate Ribbon Crunch). This stuff is rich and delicious and decadent! The... read more

Never had gelato before...it was wonderful! Many flavors to choose from....they will put multiple flavors in one cup...I tried 3, and I couldn't tell you what my favorite was, because they were all yummy....If you like ice cream, you will love gelato or at least Paciugo's gelato

If you are looking for a good place to get ice crew with your family this is the place to go! Paciugo has many great favors! The one thing about it Is there aren't many places to sit inside.

This place has a huge selection of flavors to choose from and they don't cram a lot of crap into the gelato to add flavor. They incorporate the flavor into the gelato and don't rely in swirling in things to add flavor. At any given time there are probably over 2 dozen flavors all homemade, fresh and soft. The banana...

A Gelato stop is essential every time we happen to be downtown St Pete! Every flavor is natural and authentic to what you would expect to find in Rome. My go-to is the Strawberry-Balsamic or the Rich Chocolate or the Coconut. Sometimes all 3. I'm never disappointed with any of the flavors and you can ask for a taste before... More

This is the BEST place in ST.Pete for gelato. You do not need a large and they are rich. Get you gelatto and sit out on the coverd sidewalk or inside.

… via a big, stand-alone sign. And it’s well-deserved. Their Gelato is rich, creamy, and full of flavor. With 20+ flavors a good portion of it also delivers non-dairy options. My favorite item is their Espresso Shake- just choose what Gelato you’d like to mix with their shot of Espresso and they blend it into an insanely thick and rich... More
