Pinocchio's Original Italian Ice Cream is a Sanibel tradition since 1980. Tom and Donna Puma are the fourth owners of this landmark having purchased the business in 2007. Together with their daughter Stephanie and their friendly staff, they serve up their unique handcrafted frozen confections that keep loyal fans returning for more to their little green shop!
All Pinocchio's ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, sorbet, sherbet and Italian custards are handcrafted daily in small batches in their onsite Pinocchio's Laboratory from the finest and freshest ingredients. The flavors are unique. The ice cream is fresh (If they make it on Monday, they typically serve their ice cream on Tuesday or Wednesday.) The portions are generous and the staff works hard to make sure their Customers experience at Pinocchio's is enjoyable. They look forward to meeting new Pinocchio's Customers, welcoming returning fans and bringing Pinocchio's to your home through their online shop with FoodyDirect.
