This place is the real deal. The coconut, mango, dark chocolate and house gorgeous are all great, but by far my favorite is the SWEET FIG AND RICOTTA. You must sample it, I'm telling you it is absolutely delicious and you will be hooked. Also, the espresso is the best in town, and I almost always get a baby cappuccino.... More

After a very satisfactory lunch at Walter's in Portland Maine my husband and I spotted a gelato shop nearby. I always find it difficult to choose a flavor since the options are generally very different than ice cream. This shop was not a disappointment. I had a double scoop on a waffle cone - one was chocolate orange and the... More

My husband and I are from Europe and very accustomed to delicious Italian ice-cream. We were pleasantly surprised with the delicious ice-cream that this store offers. It is creamy, tasteful and just super-delicious! They also serve great Latte Macchiato! I will definitely visit again if back to this area.

I have had gelato while standing next to the Trevi Fountain in Rome, and this place took me back there in one bite. The gelato was fantastic! However, it was a little pricy for the small serving size.

We had the banana gelato and it was delicious. The shop is small with only a few tables, but it was very clean, and so was the restroom. The prices were a little high, but I guess it was normal for that area.

This little place on Fore Street is a true gem. The gelato is fresh made and truly Italian, with a wide variety of flavours to choose from. The espresso is hot and strong, just as it was meant to be. Reasonably priced and a friendly staff make this one of the places to visit in Portland
