Cute little place on the main street. We were staying in the area at a hotel and were in need of a little sweet treat. So at 10:00 at night we ventured out not knowing what to expect and never having gelato before and were pleasantly surprised. They have seats and sofas to enjoy your gelato on as well as... More

Best gelato ever. There is nothing like it. I'm glad you can buy this in select stores now, but nothing beats getting it at their store front. Always consistent and delicious and I still haven't tried all of the flavors.

I have been to gelateria in Rome, Florence, Merano, Bolzano, Dobbiaco, Parma, Munich, and many others. In fact, I once paid over $25 for an "ice cream cone" outside the duomo in Florence. In short, I have been around... Gelato fiasco ranks quite high on my list. Certainly it is number 1 in Maine, New England and possibly USA. I... More

Locals of all ages crowd this place year-round. For a good reason...or many of them. All kinds of flavors, and even after traveling in Italy, I have to say this might be the best I've had. Plus, it's a great story. Very local, young entrepreneurs nailed it their first time out!!! Don't miss it. Public parking behind buildings across the... More

This cute shop in downtown has great gelato flavors, a nice seating area and friendly staff. I usually get the sorbet it is so light and delicious. I like they have so many options for everyone. This place has long hours which is great for a late night desert after a movie.

Loved this little gelato shop! We tried it while on vacation passing through town. Lots of unique flavors to choose from and quick, friendly service even though there was a line.
