“Beware! This Place is Addictive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

If you want really good gelato ..... no, I mean really, really, really good gelato .... you have to visit Paciugo on Beach Street. They have all kinds of different flavors to offer and you can mix flavors in small, medium or large cups. Their gelato is to die for ...... and if you eat here all the time you probably will!!!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2012

Excellant treat after walking in the area. Enjoyed the ability to mix several flavors at a time. My first visit, but we will be back to try other flavors.

“Best Gelato I have ever had...and I've been to Italy and France!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

My wife and I stopped in here today after dropping off my mother and father in law at the Tampa airport and while we had high expectations, we left completely satisfied and almost went back for seconds before the drive back to our home in Sarasota!

The owners are wonderful and friendly people and every staff member we saw had a smile on their face. We sampled several kinds of the gelato before settling on a mixture of dark chocolate, peanut butter and another kind that had candied cherries on it. The mixture of all three was, simply put...heaven in a bowl.

This stuff isn't cheap. Having said that, you get exactly what you pay for. Fantastic gelato that easily rivals anything we had on our trip to Italy and France. The layout of the store is great and very modern Italy inspired. We wanted to try their hot chocolate as that was our drink we would always get in Italy but after our meal at Gatsby's and this yummy gelato we were simply too full.

This place comes with my highest recommendation.

“Outstanding Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

We have been there at least fifty times since its opening. Pick your flavor (they are all good) and sit in the outside seating or take a stroll along Beach Drive. You will not be disappointed.
