A great gelateria on Struabb Park in downtown St. Pete. Great gelato and lots of variety. If you are lucky, someone will be there playing an accordian a la Italia

This is Italian ice cream. They had many flavors to chose from and they are willing to let you try before you buy. Price is a little steep, not sure as never had this type before. Had outside seating so it was nice to sit and enjoy and people watch.

My wife and i travel to Italy extensively. Gelato has less air and fat than ice cream thus denser, creamier, served warmer thus soft, smoother than ice cream, all making the flavor dense. Paciugo claims their equipment is from Italy-having all the right equipment does not make good Gelato. Besides living in Italy and actually working in a true Gelato shop, the resources must be provided daily from local farms . My wife and i tried 6 different flavors, sorry not Italian Gelato. i hear there is a Gelato shop in Hanover, NH that truly has mastered the art of Gelato made on American soil. We have not visited this establishment but are planning a trip this spring to coincide with college trip to Dartmouth. I know we are in minority from other reviews but……..

Paciugo's Gelato is one of the best. We each had the $5.59 grande cup of chocolate and pistachio.
This is a very popular place, so expect a line for service & a lack of tables.
Parking is at a premium in this area.
