We visited for ice creams after lunch. The place was spotless with clean tables and chairs and quickly ordered a sundae and banana split with some lemon sorbet on top for our daughter. Presentation was good and both dishes tasted lovely and were quickly polished off. Would definitely come back again

After years of living in Stockton, Pacittos was always a firm favourite for ice cream! After years of not having any ice cream from Pacitto's due to being in Cornwall as we were in Scarborough, a visit was must as my partner had never had a lemon top! Having it again took me back to my childhood, bloody lovely :)... More

Family day out and I had great fun showing my 21 year old niece this place. It really hasn't changed since I was a young girl being taken in for a knickerbocker glory treat! Internally it is like stepping back to the 1970's. Loved it and loved my takeaway lemon top!

We popped in just because we needed a coffee break and it was nearest. What a surprise - nice, friendly staff and clean and roomy. We ordered coffee and cakes and both were lovely. It also didn't hurt to have the views of he beach and everyone having fun in the sun. We will definitely be back on our next... More

The staff are unfriendly and down right rude. The ice creams far too runny. I complained to the manager and was treated once more to a do not care attitude. Not suitable for families or anyone.

Popped in to warm up and feed our two boys after fun on the beach! They had a cheese and ham toastie which had great quality ham but unfortunately processed cheese slices!!! The kids loved it though and ate the lot followed by an icecream! We were tempted by the strawberry and lemon tops but the kids wanted simple with... More

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
