“Awesome gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

I have never been a fan of Gelato, but I am now. They have so many different flavors to choose from, you are bound to find one you like, they also will let you sample it. Awesome Gelato !! They have outdoor seating and it's right there on Beach Drive near the bay and it's just really a great experience.

“BEST gelato and ice cream ANYWHERE in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I think when a product is this good and consistently pleasing, it deserves praise. I LOVE ice cream and Gelato seek it out everywhere I travel, but Paciugo's has the best selection and quality I have ever had in my 65 years of indulging. Only 44 locations...and other than the airport...not near me in NY. thank God! Because it's irresistible!,

“Some of the Best Gelato Outside Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

This is the real deal--100% worth seeking out and well-worth the price.
I have rarely had Gelato this good outside of Italy. Certainly did not expect it in St. Pete.

Had the Pistachio and the Dark Chocolate. Jammed with chunks of toasted nuts. Chocolate was complex, fruity and deliciously bittersweet.

Wife and daughter had the Sorbetto (Mango, Frutto di Bosco). Fruit essence was amazing.

Intense flavors and the perfect texture--airy, yet dense. We savored every small bite.

If you have never had outstanding Gelato, you may blanch at the price of more than $4.00 for a small size, but I will tell you it is well-worth it. GO HERE NOW!

“YOUR TASTE BUDS WILL THANK YOU!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is by far the best gelato I've ever had. It's SOOO good! The location is great; you can sit outside and watch the world go by. They have numerous flavors so try them all! I gave them a poor rating for value because it's pricey.
