World-renowned gelato purveyor Lucciano's ("The Maestro del Gelato") has opened its first U.S. outpost … right here in Orlando.

The family-owned, Argentina-based getateria chain recently set up shop in the Florida Mall, with a deluxe interior layout that puts it several heads above, say, Baskin-Robbins.

The menu is just as all-out featuring creations like peanut caramel, coco rock, King Nero, tiramisu and their signature Pistacchio flavor.

Vegan flavors are also available.

And yes, in case you were still wondering, the Florida Mall is open for business.
