We stopped in to Gorgeous Gelato instead of eating lunch because we're adults, and we can do stuff like that! Actually, it was because our lunch destination was not open on the Fourth of July, and we decided gelato would ease the disappointment. It certainly did!

The gelato was very good but nothing extraordinary. Shop clean, was able to try several flavors before deciding on a flavor called, "gorgeous," which is like a salted caramel with chocolate chips. Whiskey chocolate was also very good.

When I have a craving this is where I go. There are usually plenty of fruit sorbets also. Mango is great. Recents added aperitifs and such. Great place for dessert after dinner in the old port.

Love the affogato! Owner is always there, always has a smile and always a new gelato for you to try! One of my very favorite "feel good" places in the city :)

As you walk down (or up) Fore Street in Portland, you may ask yourself which gelato place you should go to. Before you do, ask yourself why gelato is served in those little tiny cups. It's so you DON'T HAVE TO CHOOSE. Go to both and then decide. Or son't. Also know that Arabica Coffee down on Commercial Street serves... More

This was our first time in Portland and as we were exploring the city we luckily stumbled upon Gorgeous Gelato. The staff were friendly (and very generous when it came to serving the gelato). We were beyond satisfied with our experience! If you choose to stop in (which is a must if you're in town) try the lemon, coconut, cannoli... More

There's a reason this place is the #1 place to eat in Portland. The is the best gelato I've ever had! Absolutely delicious! I tried the "sea salt chocolate" and "gorgeous" flavors. Would definitely return!!

It's this simple: I've never had better gelato, and every single person I've brought to Gorgeous Gelato has left there saying they've never had better gelato. The Italian proprietor and resident gelato guru is batting 1.000!
