I live 4 miles away from this place...its a love/hate thing though because I can NOT get enough of it! I mix the extra dark chocolate with the cherry (the cherries are imported and even alone are enticingly addicting!). I actually run 5 miles along the pier and go in after that! The shame! We have yogurtology and other ice cream places around....um NO! Don't waste your time..actually maybe you should so I won't have to wait in line cuz you chose to visit! Make sure you tip...they RUN from the time they open...ENJOY!

As others have said, as good or better than Italy. Flavors are so intense! Our favorites: pistachio, hazelnut, coconut, dark chocolate, and well, everything we've tried. They'll let you taste! The pistachio has pieces of nuts and is not overly sweet like some. Can't recommend highly enough. Don't miss it.

This one falls under don't judge a book by its cover.

Paciugo has a great location along with Parkshore Grill and Hooker Tea across from the Museum of Fine Arts, but it's a smaller shop. But it's easy to find. Just find all the people outside smiling while eating their gelato.

Paciugo has an impressive number of flavors, and I think most people go for the multiscoop combinations. There really is something for everyone.

Their website says they make the "gelato fresh daily in small batches with all natural ingredients and without cream." It is milk based, so "gelato contains 70% less fat than premium ice cream."

I don't care if it's healthier than ice cream or not, all I know is that it's delicious. It's more expensive than ice cream, but the truth is, it's worth every penny.
