I love drinking the cappuccinos outside on a sunny afternoon. There is quite a selection of gelato stop choose from to top off a splendid walk by the water.

I have visited Paciugo countless times, and I can say that the quality of the gelato, espresso, and service are second to none. The perfect location and outdoor seating add ambience to such a wonderful establishment.

You want excellent gelato then this is the best place to go. Bar none. You can get up to three flavors in a small cup. For me I preferred the pistachio, dark chocolate, coconut , and Amareno.

We ducked in for a quick cup of coffee and a gelato while walking downtown. Everything was very good. I will say that I was surprised at so many 5 star reviews. It is neither a quaint or even particularly unique place. But very very good.

Paciugo has more than 30 flavors of gelato, and you can get 3 in even the smallest cup ($5). (I had frutti di bosco, stracciatella, and cocco.) You won't mistake it for Perché No in Florence, but the gelato is as good as any I have had in the US.

The Dale Chihuly exhibit followed by the best gelato I have ever had. Beautiful town. Full of things to see, different foods to taste and so much to do.

We drove from Orlando with our friends who said we had to have those, and one was it worth it! Absolutely enjoyed!!! Please try the lemon gelato, I mixed it with the raspberry and sat outside like a kid indulging lol

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the gelato at this place. They even allow tastes just like in Italy. A huge selection of flavors. My favorite is nocciola (hazelnut).

Finally found a Gelateria to match our recent vacation to Rome. Shared a large cup with 3 flavors: coconut , coffee and fendante. Sampled violet flavor also. Sidewalk table seating at 10 pm was a nice end to our date night from restaurant next door.

I happened by while on a Day Trip from Sarasota. What a find. I had 4 flavors in a medium cup. That was the greatest- to be able to explore so many flavors and not have it be the size of bucket. All yummy. They have a nice collection of tables outside to sit and watch the parade of people.... More
