“best”
Review of Pacitto's

Pacitto's
Ranked #6 of 7 Dessert in Scarborough
Description: Many other commentators are listing Alonzi's Harbour Bar as having the best ice-cream - I beg to differ. Pacittos, which is in the next block along, has far superior Sundaes. They carry a similar type of menu to Alonzi's but because the shop front isn't as bold and colourful are often overlooked. Give them a try - you won't be disappointed

“Lovely place, bad atmosphere”
Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

We love this place and go every year with our kids. The eclairs are the best ever and the ice creams are delicious. However, the last time we were there we were served by a grumpy older lady. She has a white blonde bob cut and never smiles. It's never bothered is as other staff are lovely. However, I felt compelled to review this place as on more than one occasion I have seen her treat any non white customers terribly. A young Asian family came in for tea and scones and she practically scowled at them the whole time they were there. She just glare day them while they ate and it made the whole atmosphere tense. The young family left quickly and so did we as we really felt her attitude was uncalled for in a town where tourism means the shop
Owners should surely be used to serving customers from different ethnicities! We've been going there for years, but on principle I will go to one of the other tea shops from now on. The shop owners in Scarborough are just delightful and apart from this lady we have never witnessed anything so
Prejudiced.

“A treat any day of the week”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Whenever we visit Scarborough we always make a trip to Pacitto's. A wonderful trip into a typical ice cream parlour that cannot be surpassed. Yes it is not modern or updated to 21st Century decoration but then if they did it would spoil the whole atmosphere of the place. We always have a traditional visit to Scarborough each New Year's Day and no matter what the weather, we always have an ice cream. We sit among those sipping and holding hot chocolates, coffee or tea and we enjoy a moment of romance with our speciality ice creams - you may of seen us on Tuesday 1st 2013 sitting in the window with a chocolate nut sundae and a pineapple delight - yummy.

“A great place to go for Peach Melbas and Knickerbocker glories.”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

In the summer this is a great place to go for Peach Melbas and Knickerbocker glories.
In the winter months, try the hot chocolate.
Either way, you get sea views that are unparalleled.

“Lovely”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Had a lovely toasted sandwich whilst watching the tide come in.
Lovely location. It does look a bit dated but I think thats the idea. Lovely and clean, good service and tasty toasties.
