This is the real deal--100% worth seeking out and well-worth the price. I have rarely had Gelato this good outside of Italy. Certainly did not expect it in St. Pete. Had the Pistachio and the Dark Chocolate. Jammed with chunks of toasted nuts. Chocolate was complex, fruity and deliciously bittersweet. Wife and daughter had the Sorbetto (Mango, Frutto di Bosco).... More

This is by far the best gelato I've ever had. It's SOOO good! The location is great; you can sit outside and watch the world go by. They have numerous flavors so try them all! I gave them a poor rating for value because it's pricey.

with so many delicious looking ice cream flavors, it's difficult to choose. Tried the bagio and it was the best ice cream i had in a long time. staff was very courteous and offered to try some flavors. Sitting outside by the street makes the experience more enjoyable

We stopped in on the way back from a long day at the St Petersburg Grand Prix. My wife was tired from the walk and needed a break, so we figured, why not. Fantastic atmosphere and we stopped back for the next three days. I tried a few of their flavors and loved them all. Very neat little place!

Paciugo not only has a great selection of delicious gelati (32 at all times), it also has quick, friendly service,and a killer location in a beautiful area of St. Pete. Abundant patio seating is available. A MUST VISIT each time we're in Florida!

Spent a lovely hour sitting outside admiring the Bayfront park with its beautiful banyan trees sipping marvelous coffee from this place. The counter person very pleasant and knowledgeable. The ice cream did look wonderful. Coffee was not made fresh in front of me but was hot and good flavor.

We live in St. Pete and visit Paciugo every couple of weeks for a special treat! They have a great variety of gelato- salted caramel, waffle cone sundae, bacio, dark chocolate, tiramisu, and the list goes on and on. They let you get three flavors in the small size. Just as good as any in Italy!

Don't worry about the line when you arrive at Paciugo. On a nice day, it may be out the door, but it moves fast and the gelato is well worth it! The small cup gives you the option to choose 3 flavors. The Violet flavor is phenomenal and, in my opinion, worth a special trip to St. Pete. There are... More

We first visited this cafe for coffee. The man who served us was so pleasant it made us keen to revisit. We had the most delicious and generous portion of ice cream. There were lots of flavors to choose from and sitting looking across the bay eating them was bliss.

It's my favorite place to go after lunch or after walking around there are so many picks to pick from and you can get three in a cup. Try it you will love it
