Such amazing gelato- like being in Italy!!! How lucky Portland is to have this gem! Yum. The owner was on sight greeting people in Italian. Gorgeous gelato is markedly better than any gelato we have had in the States.

So creamy but light, not heavy. I had the flavor called gorgeous, with little chunks of chocolate and just enough caramel so it was not overly sweet. Gelato was amazing!

This is a shop that loves to have you sample any flavour available, and match a couple of them up to give you a dessert that is just heavenly when taken in slowly. I never tried the gelato cannelloni but it looked divine. Another visit will give that a chance if something else doesn't take my fancy. So many choices... More

Great service and amazing gelato. My husband and I had 2 small cups with 2 flavors in each. Each flavor was amazing. You can't go wrong here.

I actually preferred the place across the street from Gorgeous. It was good but there were many more options with more unique flavors there.
