The lavender gelatto was a revelation! Absolutely loved this place. Our group of 4 had 11 flavors combined. Every one was amazing.

While it's great to get a cone or cup of gelato and walk around the waterfront, I really enjoyed the "inside" latte. A ceramic cup, a comfy seat and the best latte I ever had. The hot chocolate -- on an earlier visit -- was good as well. Perhaps it would've been better in a real cup.

The gelati at Paciugo is nearly as good as gelati in Italia, the biggest exception being it's in Florida and not Roma! The portions are large, although the smallest serving they have is a 3 flavor cup and no small cones. Otherwise, skip the dessert at dinner and make sure to stop in Paciugo and take a stroll around the... More

this Italian treat is amazing! It is ice cream like only so much better. The flavors are so intense and the mixtures are incredibly creative, such as; violet, a flavor that is so fragrant you would think you were eating the flower. You can get more than one flavor at a time and they do allow sampling so don't be... More

Having spent 3 weeks in Tuscany I can tell you this isn't as good as real Italian gelato but it is fresh and very good -best locally.
