Absolutely amazing! The staff was so friendly and very helpful. The gelato was beyond what I expected. Just so delicious! We will be visiting here often. Thanks for a tasty treat and great experience!

This place is FANTASTIC! The affogato is my absolute favorite (with wedding cake gelato)! The staff is always helpful and so pleasant. Can’t say enough! I’ve never been a huge fan of ice cream or similar, but I absolutely LOVE Paciugo!

Please, everyone in the Shreveport-Bossier City area support this small town business. The staff is really friendly and helpful, the coffee, gelato and other goodies are delicious, the place is super clean, and on Saturday night there is live entertainment at 7 pm on the patio in the back. Take the kiddos for some gelato or your sweetie for dessert and live music. This is a wonderful, relaxing place that I hope will thrive in this city. Please show it some love!

My sister and I loved everything about Paciugo! The very personable owner shared his story with us, the staff was very friendly and we tasted so many flavors we couldn't choose a favorite; they are all delicious! And yes, I've been back!

Mandi J.

First time experience today was wonderful! The staff was very knowledgeable about all of the products offered and super friendly, allowing me and my very indecisive self, to sample several flavors before finally choosing one! Cookies & milk was the winner! Will definitely be returning!

We love everything about Paciugo!!!! The staff is always super friendly and helpful, and every treat they offer is spectacular!!! Ive been to Italy, and their gelato is on point! The texture, the authentic flavor- it’s so much better than ice cream and soft serve shops in town! Every time we go in they have new things!! It’s so much more than a gelato shop, it’s a true experience going to Paciugo and we’re so glad to have this new shop in our area!!

The staff was friendly and attentive. They promptly answered several questions we had about the store and the product. They also boast a large, varied selection of fantastic gelato.

We went there on my birthday last month! Speaking as someone who has been to Italy, their Gelato is top notch. The balance of flavors and the creaminess of the Gelato is not something to be missed! I can't recommend them enough. If you're looking for a Gelato place, please don't be afraid to go here! I came all the way from Benton, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

If you have not been here, drop everything and make the drive! The atmosphere is great, the staff is wonderful and the gelato and macaroons are out of this world! Such a wonderful addition to the area.

Marylynn W.

Amazing experience overall! Very friendly staff! Delicious gelato with plenty of flavors to choose from! There is even a cute patio in the back to enjoy with a beautiful view! Highly recommend!

Taylor B.

Such amazing gelato! Felt like I was back in Italy! My husband and I went with our 6 month old, not planning on staying, we got multiple flavors to-go. Mr. Wayne and the staff were so accommodating and sweet with letting us try flavors to chose which ones we wanted! We will definitely be going back!

Dalston D.

Great atmosphere, better people! And on top of that they have really good Gelato!!! Wayne Hogue was one of my favorite college professors and it's nice to be able to support him and his family in their new business!

Tiffany S.

Had a wonderful time this evening at the Grand Opening! I sampled a ton of flavors, and every single one was delicious and creamy! I highly recommend the coconut and the black cherry gelato! However the part of my experience was the staff! Morgan assisted me and she was polite, friendly, had a great attitude and a big, happy smile! I can tell that a lot of time was spent on training each employee to offer superb customer service! Kudos to this team! I will definitely be back!

Dennis S.

Great gelato! The best thing to the actual Italian gelato (Italian gelato is more creamier than Greek gelato more icy). This is fantastic! Plus the staff is super friendly and attentive. Must try the macaroons. They are delicious!
