The reviewers are right on with this one. The young staff members were very pleasant and welcoming. They offered as many samples as you'd like. We ordered two of the smallest size, with a mix of 2 gelatos in each one. Excellent taste and quality. There are 4-5 tables inside and I imagine that this place must get mobbed in... More

Sampled several flavors before settling on two pints: Gorgeous and Coconut. Both flavors were a big hit with my family-especially "Gorgeous," their signature flavor. Bought one of the owners "addicting" canoli's. I will be going back for more!!

Gorgeous Gelato serves the best gelato in Portland; the owners came here from Milano to open their shop and it is worth every mile they traveled to make and serve such remarkable gelato. The staff is very pleasant and will do everything to accommodate your wishes........even dividing a small cup into two flavors if you so desire. You will have... More

I am an ice cream addict. Theirs is excellent. My only complaint is they often don't have a cappuccino flavor which is my favorite!

This is the absolute best gelato I've ever had outside Europe. The service is warm and welcoming. We were going to the airport and almost missed our flight just to visit this place. It was absolutely worth rushing to catch our plane (luckily we made it). I only wish I could have taken some home with me. Make sure you... More

Best gelato I've ever had. Its worth visiting Portland as a side trip! The flavors are really distinct and rich yet the gelato is not too sweet. Its a favorite Tuesday night haunt with my kids.

The only one real italian gelato in Portland, Maine. Held by italian people this is the place where you can have a real italian coffee (Lavazza) but also the best gelato in Maine. Donato and Maria Grazia are the kind owners of this little piece of Italy, when you tall with them you feel at home (I am from Italy).... More
