We had hoped for rolled ice cream but found the shop locked up ... to our delight we found this gelato store and oh my, it was incredible. Brown sugar waffle cone, red velvet and cannoli flavors found their way to us! It was sooo...tasty !!! While maybe a few pennies more it's well worth it. And they do a good job of spacing customers and requiring masks. We'll definitely go back!More

Lines kept apart, plexiglass between you and servers. Up to 3 choices in 1 scoop. Outstanding. Don't miss.

So many different flavors. Hard to choose what combination to have. The worst part is indoor seating has been taken out during this pandemic and it's really hot outside. Always make sure we stop here when we're in the area.More

Great tasting gelato, nice variety of flavors and a good variety of non dairy gelato as well. Portions are ample and they provide outside seating with social distancing taken into account. Would go back again in a flash.

Two places along beach dr for Gelato,both serve great Gelato. Avoid Paciugo, disrespect and insolence by staff can ruin an after dinner sweet. The idea of extending courtesy and having circumstantial awareness of your Patrons is LOST among the many youths that work at Paciugo....With no adult supervision, the service at Paciugo provides extreme attitudes of ungratefulness among the youth for the customer who attempts to support the business. As a local resident of downtown St.Pete I value our fabulous restaurants and most provide excellent service with a grateful attitude for the customer BUT sadly the service youths at Paciugo have completely disregarded this principle.More

my parents live here in st. pete, so we like to ride our bikes to Paciugo's. it's located in a great little strip mall area, overlooking the water. they have food and coffee and gelato, among other things. i've heard wonderful things about the coffee,...but can't attest to it personally. however, the gelato is to die for. so creamy, so refreshing, delicious! i've had both fruity and more savory (milk & cookies) flavors, and both were wonderful. the service is great. the shop is quant and nice, with some tables to enjoy your quick bite.More

Stop in for a quick homemade gelato on Beach Drive. Specialty drinks, both cold and hot! The gelatos are served in plentiful scoops regardless of the size you order! Don't miss this great dessert spot downtown!
