Family Gelato outing

This is the BEST Gelato outside of Italy. Very family friendly and excellent service. The other Gelato providers are only pale pretenders

We saw a sign on the window that advertised a "gelato Panini" for $5. They placed a scoop of gelato (The oreo was delicious) inside a sliced bulkie sandwich roll. They had a special Panini maker that sealed the roll around the gelato and left the gelato still perfectly frozen. It was surprisingly good! I would definitely come back again.... More

Not sure that line's been used before but today, after a great lunch in town with a friend, we stopped in here for the best gelato not just Portland has to offer but this side of Italy.

I happened by this wonderful gelato store expecting the usual gelato lite. Instead, I found the owners who come from Milano, whipping up espresso. The gelato was authentic. The cheery attitude of the owners reminded me of the times I spent in Italy. The hot chocolate was to die for and the lemoncello was high grade. You won't be dissapointed.

After you've had a meal at one of Portland's great restaurants, save room for dessert and head over to Gorgeous Gelato. It's the best gelato I've ever had. They'll let you try as many flavors as you need to to make a decision (it's difficult) and you won't be disappointed.

We had a very nice gelato here. The staff was very nice even in the off season. If you are near by you should definitely visit.

Best Gelato I've had outside of Italy. Try their signature flavor, the gorgeous, it is fantastic. They also know how to serve lemoncello, ice cold direct from the freezer!
