The atmosphere is small quant and to the point. We ordered our items to go and it is a good thing we did. The desserts were amazing. We got several items, a couple different things for everyone. We all agreed that if we had indulged in house we would have ordered 1 of everything in the house. Lol, it was... More

Gorgeous Gelato is the best gelato in Portland. It is owned by a family from Milan, Italy. Believe me, they know their gelato! We ordered 3 small cups which were brimming over the top. Pistachio, Coconut and Chocolate. All were terrific.

Love that they have dairy free desserts! And I say alternatives, but they're really not -- they're just delicious!

We were exploring Portland and stopped in here for an afternoon treat. And a treat it was! I ended up with a mint flavor, and a small was the perfect portion for me (without being too small). Would gladly come again, I love most ice cream and gelato, but this was really exceptional. If calories were no limit, the canoli... More

Walking around Fore Street, we stumbled on Gorgeous Gelato. After trying different ice-creams, we settled in the gelato. It was as good as Rome and Florence. We could resist coming back the next. Igbo for more .

Randomly saw this place as my wife and I were walking back to the car, really glad we stopped in. Ive only had gelato a few times, but Id have to say this was by far the best Ive had. The sea salt caramel was easily my favorite flavor, but honestly all the flavors I sampled were great.

This little gelato shop offers about 20 flavored and was much less crowded than the other place across the street. The young staff was really nice to our kids, letting them sample a couple flavors before choosing. The waffle cones were tasty and the small size was generous.

One of our favorite dessert joints in Portland. Super high quality gelato, made on premises, by authentic Milanese Italians. The namesake "Gorgeous" flavor is complex, rich and, well, gorgeous. They also make an amazing sorbet--mango and green apple is a great combo in a cup. Generous with the samples, you get to taste before you buy. Highly recommended.

Thank Teledawg
