Superb

If you're vegan, like me, or choose no dairy, you must go to Robin's Nest for the most wonderful sorbets; they are to die for! Not watery at all, very flavorful. Great service, too. Try a tasting spoon or three. Then I dare you to narrow it down to one flavor.

Stopped in this wonderful gelato stop with my 3 children. The gelato was fresh, tasy and better than I had in Italy. The gelato was so good it was hard to pick which one to get. The two charming owners Robin and Joe went out of their way to let my kids taste all different kinds of gelato until they... More

For those of you looking for a different type of frozen treat other than ice cream in Rockport, you may want to visit the Robin's Nest. Not only do they offer a very tasty gelato, they also have water ice. The Philadelphia water ice is a twist on normal italian ice but has much more flavor. The other different is... More

Often when my family and I are out for a relaxing day, it's hard to settle on one place to eat. One wants a sweet snack, another salty, and a lot of time is spent wandering around to satisfy us all. But it's so easy when we go to Rockport. The Robin's Nest makes everyone happy! The owners and staff... More

Their gelato was good and serving sizes were fair but overall I would deem this place "nothing out of the ordinary" as far as gelato places go.

As a Gelato connoisseur due to my time spent in Italy, I can wholeheartedly give the The Robin's Nest a big "Thumbs Up" for both authenticity and customer service. Their Gelato is the real deal make no mistake. This charming little shop is a very welcomed addition to the Rockport small business community. In a setting dominated by ice cream,... More

We spent the day in Rockport and had the gelato. It was great and the owners were so friendly. They even took a photo of my puppy. Should have given them my email to send me a copy. michelle@capecod.com. if they see this. I would love a copy.

I'm shocked at all the positive reviews posted! This place is overpriced and the gelato wasn't even good. My friend threw hers away. The photos are deceiving because you only get about 3 oz for $4 -- outrageous. There are so many other ice cream places in town, please just keep walking on by. This is a definite tourist trap.

Stopped in to try the gelato since I had read so many positive reviews on tripadvisor and they were all right. Simply excellent gelato that was made from scratch. Having tried gelato many times in Italy, I can say that it is equal to or better to any I had on trip while I there.If you are in Rockport you... More
