This place is right on the main drag and easy to find. It looks like a hole in the wall but it's great. The people are so nice, asking if you have any questions or if you want to sample any. I sampled like 5 different kinds and they didn't care. The garbage can ice cream is great (all different kinds of candy bars in vanilla ice cream) and so is the Milky Way ice cream! We went here on our second night in town and then every night til we left!

Larry's at St Pete Beach beats out the local completion by serving the best Ice Cream & Gelato on the St Pete Beach strip. Generous portions of deliciously flavored Ice Creams and Gelatos that can be accompanied by a huge selection of toppings. All this is served by polite and friendly staff who try to make every customers visit a great one. Larry's also serve a variety of other foods such as hot dogs, sandwiches etc. An old fashioned style store with nice indoor and outside seating is available for customers. Whilst not inexpensive for Ice Cream and Gelato it is well worth the $.

I am sorry that you did not have a great experience on your last visit. We have a cash/security policy and procedure that we follow. The owner counted and verified the cash drawer several times to figure out the cash dispute.The owner was not rude. We can't just give money out to people without checking and following up. We do not count our cash drawers up at the front counter in front of people for security procedures. The customer was giving the option of coming back into the office and watch the owner count the money to see if the cash drawer was over. After counting the drawer several times the cash drawer was even. There was not any overage of cash. We don't give cash back if a customer has a change dispute without counting the cash drawer. We are not in the business of stealing money from our customers. If the drawer was over, we would have given the overage back to customer. We have been in business for over 30 years. We are honest hardworking people . We would never keep extra money that was not ours.

We were just sightseeing by car and happened upon Larry's Olde Fashioned Ice Cream & Gelato. We decided to stop in and were surprised by the variety of Gelato. I really enjoyed the Gelato that I had and we wanted to stop in again, but we ran out of time. If we get back to St. Pete Beach Larry's will be one of the definite stops.
