It would only be a slight exaggeration to say that we stop here every time we are on Beach Dr. It's all done well at Paciugo; the food quality, service and suitability of the venue. And it's delicious gelato!

Our family and friends frequently visit Paciugo's on Beach Drive NE. 20+ flavors homemade daily! Honestly, it is better than any gelato we tasted in Italy! It's a fun and refreshing treat for kids of all ages! I also have them package it and bring it home for company and special occasions.

This is a great little Gelato shop. Nothing fancy, but the Gelato is good and the espresso is done well not well done. Nice place for a family or date to stop for something sweet and caffinated. If it is warm go out and watch the parade of overly inflated self important people streaming by. Usually good for a laugh... More

I might even say that this is better than the gelato I had in Italy! If you want gelato- this is the place. Hands down. Super creamy, super rich. Nice coffee shop for a date or friend get together. Indoor and outdoor seating (in shade) to enjoy fine gelato or coffees.

To have a sweeter gelato experience, one would have to board a plane to Italia! The gelato here is the real deal ! Paciugo offers a cornucopia of exotics to choose from! 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!
