Yup, this is great gelato...reminds me of Alaska Gelato in Venice, which is my favorite gelato place in the whole world. The three of us tried twelve flavors, and all were outstanding. (Moon Under Water is next door for a delicious meal, but don't eat too much or you won't have room for gelato. Or just return another day and... More

If you want gelato this is the place to go, richer, smoother, creamier than the best ice cream you could ever have. It's made in house and it is absolutely decadent! A small lets you try up to 3 flavors, medium up to 4, large up to 5. I got a medium and couldn't finish it all, it was so... More

We ordered a total of 6 different flavors. Each was gourmet - unexpectedly excellent! We never found such true-flavor gelato anywhere during 4 vacations in Italy. The shop was ultra-clean. Service: prompt and friendly. We're planning to return for Paciugo gelato each time we'll be in the St. Pete Area.

The coffees were pretty good, but the gelato flavors (we tried several) were out of this world. Great guy that runs the place - very generous with his samples though we were there for breakfast only. By the way - he is open at 7AM not 11. Will go back later for the gelato!

My first time having gelato & oh my. Did I start off at the right place! The amount of flavors they have are impressive. I must have tried 5 of them before I picked which 2 (yes 2) flavors I wanted. There were so many, it was a tough decision. Definately will have to go back.

We don't experience a lot of Italian ice cream where we live. Folks were very friendly, offered samples, and when we finally decided, it was very good (Espresso shake with Chocolate & Peanut Butter).

Some of the best gelato I've had and by far the most flavors to choose from. The small size is plenty big as you can have up to three flavors in it. Worth the money!

This place has excellent gelato, The flavors are very strong, so be prepared. get a variety to really experience it. It's a little pricey, that's why i gave it 4 out of 5 stars, but the portions are pretty good, even if you get a small size.

Great, tasty place. Best Gelato I've ever had and they have coffee drinks too. Everything is made fresh daily and you can combine almost any number of flavors. Don't miss this wonderful place.
