Try basic chocolate and vanilla or treat yourself to Italian specialties and delicious sorbets....Paciugo caters to everyone. It's clean, quick and be sure to taste a couple of... More

Lots of flavors of really good gelato! If you cannot decide, they have free samples. If you still cannot decide, you can get up to four flavors in one medium cone. Friendly service, staff who really seem to care about taking care of their customers.

Had a sea salt caramel ice cream. Was very good! I rated excellent since i also considered the outside seating and location. Its almost in front of the MFA museum! To improve? Someone needs to add an extra garbage since the one outside was totally full.. But nice place in a sunny afternoon!

This is a special place! When you walk in you will be overwhelmed with beautiful colors. All the various flavors are displayed in front of you in a spotless environment. Even the restroom is spotless. Important! You can try as many flavors as you like and the hard part is deciding which one to have. You can have several at... More

Love this place. Violet and black cherry swirl are my favorite ones. They can be very busy on the weekend.

I always compare chocolate gelatos-it is my favorite and I can then compare by the same standard. They had maybe 20 or more varieties and flavors but no plain chocolate! They had a chocolate chocolate chip or a triple dark chocolate or a sugar free chocolate. My second favorite is lemon gelato and they didn't have that either- they had... More

Best gelato in town! A bit pricey but totally worth it if you know and appreciate gelato. They have a good assortment of flavors and are not skimpy about giving free samples.
