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.

We went here for gelato and we were not disappointed. They have an unbelievable selection of flavors and the three that we picked were great. It is nice that they let you pick out a few flavors if you want. The bigger the size cup the more flavors they let you select. The other reviews were right this was excellent... More

People watching, the best place in St. Pete for the spectator sport by far. Upon our return to St Pete after a 4 year absence we decided to go back to this "must go to" ice cream and gelato parlor. The experience paid off. This time I tasted several flavors and must confess that it was hard to choose, they... More

My wife & I stopped in here after having terrific Eggs Benedict a few doors down at The Canopy. We were very happy we did. The Gelato at Paciugo is undoubtedly the best we have ever had in the US, it compares to the smooth, smooth gelato we had years ago at a little Gelato shop near the Trevi Fountain... More

We stopped here for gelato after dinner tonight and loved this place. They had lots of selections. You could get up to four flavors in a large cup or cone. They were very generous with their samples. There was plenty of place to sit. And you can enjoy this lively part of town while you eat your treats.

After leaving the St. Petersburg history museum we went across the street to the ice cream parlor. The young lady definitely needed to 'crack a smile' when a customer comes in especially that the prices were ...pretty stief! No ice cream parlor atmosphere either. Boring! Anyway we went there for the ice cream and a drink. I asked her for... More

This is the place for ice cream lovers of all ages! Wonderful location by the water in downtown St. Pete and our family always visits when we are in the area. Great variety of delicious gelato, and there is always something for everyone.
