The selection was good. The place was clean, and the service was fast. The selections of gelato were shown in a very appetizing way.

Paciugo serves one of the best coffees in town. Their espresso is outstanding. The cappuccino is more like a latte, with far too much milk. The gelato is very good, but it used to be better, creamier and more flavorful. Something has changed since our...More

Beautiful display, creative flavors, great texture and delicious. For sure my daughter's favorite gelato in town. But almost $5 with tax for a small?? Not that good to go very often.

We just had a shake and cone here. They are prepared to make a shake from any flavor, so that is nice. My wife ordered a waffle cone and it was literally a small clump of ice cream on top of the cone with nothing...More
