“Best soft vanilla ice cream in the area”
Review of Pacittos

Pacittos
Ranked #1 of 4 Dessert in Redcar

Reviewed 1 May 2017

There are many great purveyors of soft ice cream in the North East...and I've been to most of them. Of them all, and over many many year, Pacittos sells the nicest soft vanilla ice cream. My son loves their famous lemon top, but I stick to vanilla - and on that score, Pacittos is fabulous - creamy, well-churned and good value. I love Alfonso's and Jaconelli's in Scarborough, been and appreciated Brucciano's in Morecambe (NW), rate Mark Toney's in Newcastle and Minchella's in South Shields (which is also excellent), as is Archer's and several others; but for me, Pacittos just has the edge. Their prices are very competitive; portions are generous compared with the competition; and their servers always slap the tubs on the counter midway through filling it, so you aren't paying for fresh air (not many places do that.. Minchellas sometimes do, but none of the others seem to). So that makes it great value overall. Best after a walk along the beach from Marske...
Reviewers have slated Pacittos for their lack of loos and interior decor etc. I can't comment on these things as I just buy their takeaway ice cream...and it's lovely!

Been going here for as long as I can remember, the ice cream is so creamy and smooth but the best part is the lemon too, better than anywhere else I've ever tried one. They also serve a nice coffee for the days it's too cold to wonder around with ice cream.

Just as Middlesbrough gave the world the Parmo so Redcar gives us the lemon top, essentially a lemon sorbet on top of a soft serve ice cream. On the seafront Pacittos serves a great example at a good price.

Best place to get ice cream in Redcar , variety of flavours and much better than the other one down the road from it.
