They keep it stocked full of excellent choices of gelato, and they keep it clean. We love the fact that all of the staff are so friendly and so helpful. We asked... More

Great Gelato in St. Petersburg. Smack in the middle of a great commercial area with restaurants and shops. You can get 3 flavors on the smallest cone/cup and tasting prior to your selection is available. Ample seating inside and outside, but you may enjoy it better by walking along the drive and going into the stores or just people watching.... More

My family and I came here, on Sunday afternoon, in the summer and it was amazing. The ice cream was rich, smooth, creamy, and delicious. What I was most excited about was that in a small you could get multiple flavors. The amount of flavors was unreal. There was definitely something for everyone. I would recommend this place with no... More

A visit is a definite whenever we are on Beach Drive in St Petersburg. Tiramisu is my favorite. The staff is friendly and you can try any flavor you wish prior to making your purchase

The best gelato ever! Enough said.. Since I have to say more: amazing variety of flavors, each one delicious! They will let you taste as many as you like. In each size cup you can have up to 3 flavors. Seating inside is small. Tables and chairs outside. A "must" stop on your visit to downtown St Petersburg!

This place has the best gelato in town. Of course they have free samples to taste so you can pick out the best flavor or combination. The location is perfect if you overlooking the parking. It is located in a great area for walking and enjoying a gelato at the St Petersburg waterfront park.

The help is wonderful, offering tastes of the huge variety of flavors. I've never seen a place where you can actually have 3 flavors on the smallest cone, and it works!!!! So you can mix and match, and try different ones each time. Prices are quite reasonable, and there are comfy chairs, if you choose to eat there, tho I... More

Yes, it's good and fresh. And yes, being on a fancy street means fancy prices. So if you don't mind paying about $10 for two people to eat ice cream, go there. We enjoyed it. Service can be slow, though, as the people in front of you get numerous samples.

After a wonderful walk through the park, stop by Paciugo's for the best ice cream. The flavors available are amazing. The staff is very helpful. The place is very clean and it is right by the water. It's an excellent choice for a dessert and coffee.

You want ice cream? Skip Kilwins. Go here for the creamiest, most flavorful iced dessert in St. Pete. You can pick up to three flavors that they cram together in one small cup, which is plenty. My favorite: dark chocolate, raspberry sorbet and coconut. Heaven!
