Paciugo founder Cristiana Ginatta loves gelato. This passion was sparked during a childhood spent in Italy, tasting her grandfather’s handmade gelato. After honing her skills as a professional gelato maker at a traditional, family-run culinary school, Ginatta traveled to the States with her family and established the first Paciugo in Dallas. Now Paciugo can be found all across the country, and gelato scoopers treat taste buds to myriad flavors made with natural ingredients such as fresh fruit and dairy. Boasting 70% less fat than ice cream, gelato presents customers with a guiltless dessert option, alongside frozen yogurt and scratch-and-sniff stickers shaped like strawberries.
