Amazing! And the customer service is about as good as the gelato! The "gorgeous" gelato has to be my favorite but the ore definitely held its own!

This is a must visit in the portland area. It is a wonderful establishment with great treats and a great staff. Within walking distance of hotels and other sites in the area.

We had a choice of choosing this gelato place or the one across the street from it. (Gelato Fiasco) But we decided to go the Gorgeous because Gelato Fiasco wholesales their gelato and we can get it a grocery stores in NC. The Gelato was great.

Gorgeous Gelato is the only place I will go. It's tainted it for me and I compare everything to their extremely high bar. Their product is second to none. Their shop is always extremely clean and their staff is helpful, knowledgeable, and extremely pleasant. Plus unlimited samples.

Gorgeous Gelato - really good gelato by an Italian gelato maker. The best I have had outside of Italy. Flavors vary but the set some aside in pints in the freezer. Actually some other places buy it and resell it. Worth a stop but parking can be a problem.

You've had dinner, you're walking back to your hotel not even thinking about dessert or coffee, but then, Gorgeous Gelato appears in front of you offering affogato. You yield to temptation and enjoy every creamy mouthful soused in espresso. You leave satisfied, not sorry.

Great stop for a tasty treat. If you can't decide between the delicious options ask for two flavors in your choice of cup or cone. Excellent hospitality and service!

this was right near my hotel and i wanted something sweet and this fit the need perfectly. I had chocolate and chocolate chip in a cup and it was very good. I did taste some other flavors that were very good also but stuck with my favorites

We stopped for breakfast which was too early for gelato but they all looked wonderful especially the almond and pistachio.Instead we had 2 superb macchiatos and a plate of cookies and felt transported to Italy. Nice owners and a great place. We will return.

Just like Italy. Super flavors, not the candy stuff with mix ins and artificial colors and the rest. This is simple, genuine and superb- chocolate orange, pistachio, chestnut, coconut. Wow! Whenever we ate out in Portland, we skipped desert at the restaurant and just walked here for gelato. You won't be sorry.
