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

This little gelato shop is well worth the visit. The amazing quality of the gelato paired with the beautiful scenery make this shop a must stop for me every time I come to St. Petersburg.

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.

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
