I feel in love with hazelnut gelato when I visited Germany years ago and the hazelnut gelato at gorgeous tasted just as good as the kind I had on my trip! Originally I got a small but ended up going back for a large with half hazelnut and half gorgeous (chocolate flakes & caramel).. we'll be returning tomorrow for more... More

What a great ice cream and coffee parlour. The gelato lives up to the name. Also sells italian coffee, which is a plus in my opinion.

This is by far the best gelato we've ever had. They'll happily let you taste a bunch of flavors. All are incredible. The people are incredibly friendly - they do this because it's what they want to do. Here is a word I've never used before in a review. The gelato and the people are perfect.

This is the best gelato ever! We visit every time we come to Portland. The dark chocolate gelato is to die for and the flavors constantly change, but all are good. I highly recommend visiting! You won't be disappointed.

The reviewers are right on with this one. The young staff members were very pleasant and welcoming. They offered as many samples as you'd like. We ordered two of the smallest size, with a mix of 2 gelatos in each one. Excellent taste and quality. There are 4-5 tables inside and I imagine that this place must get mobbed in... More

Sampled several flavors before settling on two pints: Gorgeous and Coconut. Both flavors were a big hit with my family-especially "Gorgeous," their signature flavor. Bought one of the owners "addicting" canoli's. I will be going back for more!!

Gorgeous Gelato serves the best gelato in Portland; the owners came here from Milano to open their shop and it is worth every mile they traveled to make and serve such remarkable gelato. The staff is very pleasant and will do everything to accommodate your wishes........even dividing a small cup into two flavors if you so desire. You will have... More

I am an ice cream addict. Theirs is excellent. My only complaint is they often don't have a cappuccino flavor which is my favorite!
