Not that I needed convincing - or to convince you - but in my not-so-humble opinion, Gorgeous Gelato is the far more authentic and, far more importantly and to the point, better tasting gelato. The people working at Gelato Fiasco are extremely pleasant and hard working based on my experience (not that the hands-on almost always present owners of Gorgeous... More

There are several Gelato places in Portland, but I found this one to be the VERY BEST! The service was great, the prices reasonable and the Gelato was some of the best that I have gotten in the US.

Get the affogato with hazelnut as well as a cup of the dark chocolate gelato. My god is it great. It has nearly all 5 star reviews for a reason.

Awesome gelato. Great and pleasant service. Definitely a must visit. Portland has a lot of great choices, but this is worth the stop.

Went after dinner for a decaf espresso and couldn't resist taking some Gelato after the guy behind the counter let us try many flavors. Tastes like in Italy and it's a great way to finish the evening. No queue and very very friendly batrista!

Fantastic.... first time in the states that I've tasted Gelato that tasted like it does in Italy.. must be because the owners are from Italy (Milan specifically as I learned from talking with them).
