Make a meal of it!

That's how good it is. Every flavor is outstanding- better than the gelato in Florence, Rome, Milan... The pistachio gelato tastes like roasted pistachio infused cream. The chocolate and Gianduia are the purest, most concentrated expression of those flavors. The fruit flavors are straight from the... read more

I stopped in to Gorgeous Gelato the night before they were set to start renovations, and gelato was 50% off. A great deal. I had the large serving and combined two flavors. The gelato was good, and I think the price would have been fair even without the discount.

This gelato was delicious. Texture and flavor were amazing. Service was good as well. They have a small selection, but quality always beats quantity. Will be back!!

As an expat. living in Italy for the past four years, this is real Italian Gelato. The flavor offerings are wide and varied with all of them outstanding. We had seven different flavors between three people. In addition, the selection of Italian digestive liquor is great! Gelato made in Maine by a friendly Italian from Milano! Stop in and you... More

This is a must any time you're in Portland. The selection of flavors are fantastic and the staff are wonderful. We went for the Gorgeous (house special) and Coconut... delicious! Prices are very reasonable as well.

Once you try GG, there's no going back. Flavorful gelato, good service, reasonable prices - certainly worth a visit or two, or three...

Loved the gelato. Very unique flavors. Excellent service. Would go back again. Reasonably priced. Discount when outside temperature is below 32 degrees.

In search of an afternoon treat, I headed to Gorgeous Gelato and left with a smile! Despite having sampled other Maine gelato, their recipe is somehow lighter and tastier - though believe me, a small was plenty (and I love to eat). Additionally, the Bombay Chai was a great tea to warm up with after my treat. A pleasant atmosphere... More

My wife and I enjoy all kinds of ice cream, sorbet, and gelato, and sample them wherever we travel. Until today the best we have had was gelato in Florence, Italy. We sampled eight at Gorgeous Gelato on a snowy afternoon between Christmas and New Years. The pistachio gelato was intensely aromatic and flavorful. The Gorgeous, a house blend of... More
