Walked here after dinner to get some dessert. Had half raspberry and half dark chocolate (both dairy free!) and it was so good! Very clean and nice staff. Will be back next time I'm in the city.

A co-worker and I went to Gorgeous Gelato after dinner on a week night for dessert. I had read the many trip advisor reviews and sought out the place to try it for myself. It was a "cool" night but the trip was worth it! They had a lot of flavors and you can sample any / all of them.... More

Gelato was excellent, the owner friendly, and the store very clean and well presented. This will make an excellent addition to your trip if you are looking for something savory, sweet, and well presented. Come try it.

My family stopped by after a nice dinner. What a way to top off it off! The gelato was very light and flavorful. Loved the dark chocolate. One of the best gelato places this side of the Atlantic. Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland.

Happened to stumble in here,by chance. Really friendly staff Gave good advice and offered us tastes of whatever we liked. Plumped for the chocolate, and it was beautiful. I had no idea about what gelato was, but miuch nicer that pure ice cream, lighter and not so heavy. The chocolate was full on taste, and really enjoyed it! Hardly ever... More

We have enjoyed gelato all over Italy - mainland and Sicily - and this gelato is as good as the best we enjoyed there. Definitely fresh and authentic. Don't bother to eat gelato anywhere else in Portland! Our favorite flavors - bacio, hazelnut and dark chocolate. And the Italian coffee is great too!

Their gelato is fantastic, and the atmosphere made me forget about the cold Maine winter, making me feel as though I were back in Italy!

Gorgeous Gelato, will make you feel like you are back in Italy. Truly authentic flavors and a wonderful owner. Dark chocolate is as good (if not better) than the number one flavor Gorgeous - the Capacino's are great too.
