We stopped in Paciugo to wait for friends to arrive for a lunch at a nearby restaurant. We shared a latte (very good) and watched the locals stream in. This is a favorite spot for desserts. A tall canine came in with her human and ordered what appeared to be a gelato. She and her human went to the porch... More

Ironically, the gelato here is better than the gelato I had in Rome. The setting is comfortable and is in a great location. The ice cream is great quality here. When I first moved here to Saint Petersburg, I tried the ice cream here because it was highly recommended. The flavors are unique and are exquisite. I personally love the... More

The only reason I am giving 2 stars is because of the large portion sizes. We tried multiple flavors and their gelato is whipped up/airy/foamy with very little refreshment/mouth feel. I assume the great reviews are because people are impressed with the portion size. My wife and I love gelato and ice cream and ended up throwing out most of... More

There was a dog inside the restaurant. This past Sunday. There was plenty of outdoor seating that could have been used instead.

So yummy! So many flavors. Always packed and they really need more seating but one of my favorites! Right by the water and park and the amazing downtown St Pete surroundings.

I think I've been going to Paciugo since 2007, and it's consistently great, Sea Salt Caramel is a must for me. Peanut Butter Chocolate, if you like that sort of thing, is very good. I think the only flavor I don't care for is the lavender. Writing this review I wish I had Paciugo, and I want to go out... More

The gelato here is amazing. Since I was in the neighborhood visiting the Dali Museum it was only fitting to see how good this place is. The gelato was the best I have ever had in a very long time and I have had a lot of good homemade gelato and this up to par with that. I would definitely... More

The gelato is simply fantastic, as good as I had in Rome. Go, buy, eat as you stroll Beach Drive, and enjoy. Service was fast and friendly -- they even wrapped up an order for me to keep it cool for return to a nearby hotel. Loved it.

We have been going here since they first opened downtown. We have never been disappointed. They really do know how to make Gelato.

I do not eat animal products (I like animals, including cows) so finding there were 6 non-diary choices was amazing. I went one night for the mixed berry and then another night for raspberry/chocolate combined. Pure heavy and good service too!
