“Real flavor. Real ingredients. Really amazing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

The whole family loves Gorgeous Gelato. The gelato bursts with flavor. My strawberry/dark choc. combo was like eating a real choc. covered strawberry. We love trying different combos each time. Love the variety of flavors as well as the lovely atmosphere. Friendly, helpful with tastings and pairing. Worth the stop.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

My wife and I took the kids tonight. The Gelato is fantastic. They have a great selection of flavors. The service was excellent - very friendly and prompt. A little pricey but not enough so to keep us from returning.

“A good place to stop for a cup full of heaven. Whether it's espresso or gelato you cannot go wrong.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

We love getting gelato at Gorgeous Gelato at least once a week. The owner is always there and is more than happy to answer any questions about the product. At Gorgeous Gelato you will be amazed with the incredibly clean environment and that they strive to use the most fresh, local, and organic ingredients. In comparison to other gelato places Gorgeous is the most authentic available. If you live in the greater Portland area it is a must that you try it at least once. You will not be disappointed!!!

“Best-tasting Gelato Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

At Gorgeous Gelato, you can be assured of a fresh and delicious cup of gelato every time. The flavors change daily, although there are some favorites, such as "Gorgeous," which is always there. My favorites are cantaloupe, sour cherry, and oreo. You will leave feeling full and satisfied every time!
The staff is always very helpful and patient no matter how indecisive you are.
The inside is cheery and clean.
They have ruined me for trying anywhere else!
