The gelato is certainly delicious. Deciding which one to order is the hardest part, but to help the process, you can try samples until your taste buds delight and they'll dish two kinds in a cup (even in a small dish) if you just can't narrow it down to one. What is really unique, is the hosts, their story -... More

Not only a great selection of gelato, but Maria and Donato are such good hosts. They are more than willing to have you sample some of their gelato if you are not quite sure which one to purchase. A great place to have an Italian coffee also..

Doesn't have the selection as the place across the street but the quality is a lot better. Always get friendly service. Gets great reviews from our friends as well. We will be back.

We did this & the Gelato Fiasco both while here and the Fiasco across the street has a better atmosphere though the crew here ---especially Berkley is super, too. The gelato was nice, atmosphere a bit less glitzy than the other stand but still a nice treat...even in mid-winter!

We love the fact that this local shop is thriving. Their fruity and chocolate flavors are favorites: they pack a good kick. The shop just got a liquor license and is starting to make certain flavors with booze, too!

I brought a bunch of employees here and we LOVED this gelato place. It was so amazing! Their dark chocolate is phenomenal, and Donato is such a joy to be around.

Extremely genuine, something you wont find in many restaurants. The Gelato itself was delicious, the service was wonderful and helpful. Personally I chose to combine Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt with Smooth Vanilla. The vanilla was heavenly to say the least, and with a touch more salt, the Chocolate would have been too! If your looking for fun desert locations, look... More

On our way home from a bar, we noticed this gelato place. Although it was close to his closing time, we were served by the friendly owner, and were delighted with the wonderful flavors of bacio, lemon, and "Gorgeous" - a must-try when in Portland.

If you are looking for the best, most inventive and authentic gelato around, this is the place. Even some of the absolute best restaurants in Maine get their gelato from this place. Well worth the visit.
