Best gelato!

Great gelato by native Italians.(from Milan). Large variety of flavors (plus espresso). You would think your were in Italy. Il gelato è molto delizioso!

I went to Gorgeous Gelato in January of 2015, so my friends and I were the only ones in there because it was cold outside. The atmosphere was nice, but could be improved. I love Italian gelato, and so far everything I have found in the states does not compare to Italian gelato. Again, this was the case for Gorgeous... More

Dear Customer, Probably you didn't realize I'm 100% Italian, fresh off the boat four years ago, my wife (100% Italian, too) attended the University of Gelato learning the art directly from the Father of modern Gelato, and we directly import from Italy all our ingredients. Have you ever been in Italy ? Thanks a lot for sharing your opinion, Donato More

We were in town for the weekend and after pizza on Friday night, my wife who is an ice cream freak, insisted we hit this spot for desert. Not sure if it was the temps in the mid teens, or just our timing, but we were the only two heading in, other than a young man who was studying at... More

On a cold winter day there is nothing like an affogatto. The gelato and service are always great. We have never been disappointed.

This is the real thing! Great Italian gelato right here in Maine. When in Italy, we ate gelato every day. Now I can enjoy it here at home

We first visited Gorgeous Gelato because we heard they have good espresso, and their espressso is excellent. Then, we tried the gelato, and their gelato is fabulous! Now, every time we're in Portland, we stop twice each day at Gorgeous Gelato - once in the afternoon and then again in the evening. Yummy!

After a visit to Italy a number of years ago we longed for real gelato here in the States. We found it in our home town of Portland Maine at Gorgeous Gelato! Great gelato, expresso and other treats all served by friendly staff.

We love Gorgeous Gelato. We have tried out local gelato restaurants and feel that Gorgeous Gelato is one of the best. We even started going here over MDI. If you know MDI, then you know that is a hard choice.

after an 12 year old's birthday dinner (at buffalo wild wings- I won't bother with a review there- it is as to be expected!) we polled the boys on the next stop. Gorgeous Gelato was everyone's pick, and we headed into the Old Port. Wow. The Gelato is incredible, creamy and delicious. The flavors are intense- chocolate, straciatella, dark chocolate... More

Worth a repeat visit over and over again. Fabulous, authentic gelato and great espresso. Don't miss this Old Port treat when visiting Maine, or visit often if you live here
