Friendly service, great gelato. Would have liked more of the classic flavors, but was satisfied. They also have espresso. Tables inside.

Delicious gelato-- worth every single star. Really great flavors and consistency. The hazelnut and dark chocolate together are unbelievably awesome.

Not only is it located in the beautiful Old Port section of the city, it is also charming and delicious! My mom and I stopped by here after dinner on our way back to the hotel, and it was a perfect end to our meal. I had the tiramisu gelato, which was delicious. It tasted exactly like a well-balanced tiramisu... More

Okay, I know the title is big, but Gorgeous Gelato is simply amazing, even benchmarking it against gelato in Italy. Wonderful service, amazing flavors and out of this world texture. A must visit if you're in Portland!

My friend and I stopped by Gorgeous Gelato for an afternoon snack! It was awesome! Definitely worth the visit. My friend recommends the lemon, while I suggest Gorgeous or Moccacino (not sure of spelling)!

I had the Dark Chocolate Gelato on Wednesday night, it was the creamiest dark chocolate I have ever consumed. I returned the next morning to try my favorite chocolate, hot chocolate, and for my taste, it was lacking in the chocolate intensity that I found in the gelato; it was also a thin consistency and my favorites are somewhere between...

Had the other one the night before and it doesn't even compare to the smoothness and richness of Gorgeous Gelato - it's heaven! Try the Salted Caramel, it's fabulous.

Oh my, this gelato is decadent and so very good. I tried the very chocolate (dairy free and so very very good) and the coffee cream. My husband had pistachio and hazelnut. We just had to say ummmmmmmm with each bite. And they have cannoli too! Put this on your places to visit and enjoy when in Portland. Owners are... More

The owner awaits his customers with a smile and enthusiasm, offering small samples of as many flavors as are requested before a decision is made. He urges his patrons to be patient, as there is no hurry to decide which flavors will finally make it into their cup. The gelato is delicious. and organic to boot. Expect a choice of... More

Stumbled across this while waiting for the ferry to NS. I've had gelato in several places and this ranks up there with that in the "big cities". Very cream, fresh ingredients and some interesting Flavours. Don't miss this if you are in Portland or just passing by.
