The gelato is the real deal. Delicious and in a great location, downtown Portland. with all the lovely brick walking streets and shops. It is one of our destination spots when we come for our yearly summer vacation nearby.

Gorgeous Gelato is our favorite place . The owner is an Italian and his gelato is just as good as any in Italy. The flavors are inventive ,pure fruit , no fillers. You will not be disappointed. Highly recommend.

I just love Gelato and always excited when I can get it. Most of the time it is just so,but this ice cream was so delicious. The flavors are outrageously good, they even had my favorite Baccio. Don't miss this place

I went to Gorgeous Gelato on my way out of Portland, and I'm glad I did! There was a large selection of flavors from which to choose. They also had gelato cannolis, which were fantastic! This was some of the best gelato I've ever had.

It is absolutely delicious. My wife got rum chocolate and hazelnut and I got strawberry and lemon. Both mediums and she got a cappuccino. They were all delicious. The only down fall is the price. For a tourist spending 18$ for ice cream and coffee seems expensive but hey might be cheap around Portland. All in all great visit and... More

Hi Erin, Thank you so much for sharing your "gorgeous" experience! Just wanted to tell that a medium cup costs $4.65 and a large cappuccino just $4.09, so the grand total should be $13.39 Hope this helps! Thanks again, Donato More

Best gelato I've had outside of Italy which makes sense since the owners are from Milano. Generous with samples and, wait for it- $3 Fernet shots!!!! Also other amari and bourbon. Will be back every trip to Portland. Grazie mille!!!!!

I've tried gelato in Venice, Rome, and Murano but THIS place tops them all! Lucious thick creamy gelato drowning in flavor--you've got to make this a stop along your way...authentic. Addictive.

The hazelnut is worthy of an Italian gelateria. The ice cream texture is excellent. One of the best ice cream I have had outside Italy.
