“Gorgeous is Delicious! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

This gelato was fantastic! Best gelato I have had in the U.S.! It is never quite the same as in Italy (not sure why), but this is certainly the closest I've ever tasted!

“Super ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Gelato is the core offer and a great place for post dinner desert. Not sure about anything else as we only had ice cream but that was great.

“Delish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Lucky for us, Gorgeous Gelato was located right across the street from our hotel. Having been to Italy, we certainly knew the taste of delicious gelato. The owners of this establishment are from Italy originally and they have brought their expertise to Portland. The gelato was delicious! They offer a variety of flavors every day and encourage you to combine them. There are a few tables inside so you can enjoy. Stop by while visiting Portand.

I visited Gorgeous Gelato because of reviews I saw on Tripadvisor. Very good gelato. We had pistachio and hazelnut and enjoyed every bite!

“Great Choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Just happened to stumble upon this place while eating lunch in Portland. Great choice. I have family in Italy and had just got back stateside a few months before, so I put this place to this test. No disappointment. My kids agreed, just as good as in Italy. Better than Gelateria Serafini in Lavis, Italy, if that means anything to anybody, but that does say something. Will definitely stop back on my next trip through Portland.
