The place was great! Nice area outside to sit. The gelato was amazing! They had plenty of flavors including ones you don't usually find. You are able to.try them first. The cups are small but its so rich that you don't need much. I would definitely go again.

Delightful sweet experience at Paciugo's. Lots of classic as well as original flavors. Nice friendly service. Three flavors placed in one small cup! Outdoor seating very open and nice. Easy parking. Highly recommend for a sweet treat.

I love this place, flavor of their gellatos make you feel like in Italy. The have over 20 flavors daily. You will always get the traditional ones and some funky flavors. I am having today strachiatella, lime, rasberry, mediterranean sea salt caramel, and violet. I skipped lunch, so I am pig out the venti size with 5 awesome flavors !!!!

This place has great gelato. Only problem as of late is they have limited their selection supposedly due to equipment failure. But this has been going on for a while. Only place I know that is strictly gelato and sorbets.
