If you're in the Tampa/Clearwater area, it's worth a trip to downtown St. Pete's for the excellent gelato at Paciugo. You can taste any of their large selection before you make your final choice. And you can combine flavors so you don't have to commit to just one! I highly recommend the pistachio.

You can eat in air conditioned comfort inside, or sit outside on the wide sidewalk overlooking the water and two incredible banyon trees in the public park across the way. Or stroll across the park and walk along beside the bay.

The only drawback is that you must pay for street parking, and it can get expensive (especially if you want to explore the neighborhood and check out any of the surrounding shops and restaurants). What I would do next time is to drive down to the free public parking lot at the north end of the park and walk back to Paciugo. That way you can use the exercise as an excuse for indulging!

Loved the black cherry amaretto gelato. Lemon sorbet was good too and the Dark Chocolate was just right. Value for price was great.

Stopped in on a whim. Got a small gelato but with three flavors! A great snack in the afternoon. Coffee was fine too! Highly recommended.

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
