With so many great flavors to choose from, I could barely make up my mind. The sea salt caramel was delicious, as was the cake batter, but my hands down favorite was the violet flavor. You will not be disappointed in any flavor you decide on, so make sure you stop by if you are in the area.

I took my dad-in-law who is confined to a wheel chair for ice cream at Paclugo's. I've been there before, but it had been several years (i live in Virginia). It was very good as expected. I had the limone sorbet which was as good as I've ever had and I've lived in Italy, so I can back that up... More

Large variety of flavors, great service and location, and truly delicious product. Always a favorite, and I like bringing my out-of-town guests here, too.

Had a marvelous and creamy violet gelato shake after dinner. I was informed the violet gelato had just been freshly prepared. I've had it before and it didn't disappoint.

Make sure to go in, no matter how long the line is. Lots of flavors to choose from along with some kind that meet special dietary needs. Friendly, speedy service keeps the line moving. Only wait might be the guests sampling & trying to decide what to buy! Went both nights during our weekend stay in St Pete & definitely... More

We went to Paciugo by looking at the reviews in TripAdvisor when we had vacation at Fort De Soto Park. We kept on going there everyday a couple of times driving from Fort De Soto just for the sake of having Pistachio Gelato during our stay. This is a never miss place if you are in St Petersburg.

Great gelato. Most evenings you'll have to wait in line, but it moves fast. Outside tables are always busy, but somehow the turn-over is fast enough that the wait never seems to be an issue.

I can't eat dairy so I can only fog up the glass case of gelato, BUT they have six flavors of sorbet. On this trip I only went there three times. I consider sorbet at Paciugo's supper. If you drop in when I'm there, I'll be the one in the cushiony chair by the window, licking a large waffle cone... More

Love this place. They have such great flavors like pistachio, Pepe Nero (olive oil and pepper, which sounds crazy but is amazing!), Amareno (Black cherry) and salted caramel are just a few to choose from. Every once in a while they come out with something unique, like chocolate jalapeno which I wish they would do more often. And you can... More

Stopped in after dinner downtown on Sunday night and the line was out the door. Fantastic gelato. Quick service. Always happy to let you sample to help you make up your mind. LOVE this place!
