“Best Gelato I've had in the states”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2012

What more can you say? Fabulous and not bad for your waist line. The staff is super freindly and will let you try as many flavors as you like. Be warned, if you stay more than a few days, you'll visit more than once also! Guaranteed:)

“Gelato, Ice Cream, Cappucinos, Expresso & More”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

Creamy Gelatos in every flavor imaginable even some options made with less fat, non-daity, etc... Excellent sizing too, small can include up to 3 different flavors. Perfecto!

Expresso and Cappucinos for you to select among the norm. This is an excellent spot with an Italian flair! Add to the indoor and outdoor seating, great spot to people watch while enjoying a treat after dining. Bring the family, come with a group, the staff is kind and friendly, helping with testers to help you narrow your creamy choices.

“Best Place of Beach Drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2012

This is the best place to go on Beach Drive. if you are dining at the other restaurants on BD, skip dessert there and walk over to Paciugo. Walk past the other ice cream and gelato places, especially the one at Cassis. Paciugo is the best hands down.

“Too many good choices to pick from:”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

I've had many experiences here, and each has been better than the last. I ask to try many flavors before I decide and so far they have not been anything but helpful during the selection process. They pack the small size jam filled so that’s all I ever need. Also they let you mix flavors which is nice, but be for warned, it melts quickly so it’s best to pick flavors that go well together because it’s hard to keep flavors separate in such a small dish. That is really the only down side. Go there and try it, you won’t regret it!

“The best ice cream place I've ever been”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

Take it from the ice cream taster and a world traveler... I've tried ice cream in many places in the world but this one is "the best"... From the perfecty creamy ice cream, great flavors, freshness, etc. you also find healthy options (non-dairy, fat free, low fat... Whatever you want) or also the overindulgent options for the less worried. Great location and atmosphere, plus fabulous service. What else can u ask for? ... You need to be patient because it can get crowded but they manage the crowd pretty fast.
