Probably our first stop once we unpack and check in that is. BEST EVER ICE CREAM, love my SANIBEL CRUNCH #1 on my list. As soon as I settle in we headed to Pinocchio's saying we would make it last a few days. Well that did not work. Go there several times when I am on the island. This is the first year in a long time that I can not get down there but going to still try to get some ice cream. Donna and Tom were the owners that we knew. Keep up those awesome flavors and you are number one in my book. Do you ship :)

We tried vanilla bean, mango sorbet and mint chocolate chip. All we’re delicious although the vanilla was exceptional. Don’t go to the Dairy Queen if you want real ice cream. Pinocchio’s got the best on the island.

Fantastic variety, but a wee bit expensive. Lovely to sit on the broad walk and watch the world go by.
Best on the Island and very helpful.

I used to frequently come here, since 1981, for the best ice cream ever. But they have kept raising their prices, and now a single small scoop, the size of a golf ball, is over $5.00!!! I won't be going back.
