Amazing gelato

There was an amazing gelato place where I live. Went to Italy and ate real gelato--the stuff at home was comparable. It's gone downhill since...why should you care? This was the best gelato I can recall ever having. Anywhere. My memory may be tainted, but this was amazing, creamy and tasted... read more

Came accross this place by chance. I am a huge ice cream fan and this place was heaven. Only had a small cup but had three flavours. A must stop for all ice cream lovers

Well, actually, there is good gelato and then there is gelato that is not as good as you might expect. This is excellent. A wider variety of flavors than you might ordinarily see, and they offer excellent Italian hot chocolate and some pastries. Limited seating inside.

I have had gelato in Europe that was not this good! Glad it is far enough from where I stay when I am down there or I might be there daily. Lots of choices and excellent gelato.

I think the title of my review speaks for itself. Yes, the gelato is that good! We went to Paciugo with 7 people and we each got something different. So, I was able to sample many flavor. All were fantastic. So sample what you thing you will like and make you decision...you won't be disappointed!

The Best Gelato I've ever experienced! My daughter said the Best Cookies and Cream she ever had! The winner is the Espresso Your Love!

I've visited Paciugo before and I was 100% sure this was the most authentic gelato I've ever tried outside of Italy. This past week, I went there with Italian friends, and sure enough their impression was the same: this is the real deal! You can tell by the way they serve it, but also by the texture and, of course,... More

We have visited Paciugo every time we're in St. Pete. Great to get any flavor gelato or ice cream and then sit outside to people watch. Great that you can sample a flavor or two just to make sure :)
