4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Walked here after dinner at Tiqa- thanks to Trip Advisor! Homemade gelato! Can't beat it. Only gave it a 4 instead of 5 because I mixed flavors and the server didn't really split it 50/50- it was more of the berry flavor and not much tiramisu. Nitpicking probably...but that tiramisu was gooooood. lol! Enjoy!

I stopped in to take a break from the July heat. I ordered the panna cotta and gorgeous flavors in a small cup. They are both fantastic - creamy and rich.

While walking around, stumbled upon this place. My wife had to have some so we went in. The amount of her serving was huge, and she said it was about the best gelato she has had.

Homemade with love by a Milanese family right in good ol' Portland, Maine. This is a must at least once on your visit to Portland. Great coffee too. They have cannoli filled with gelato should you want to try that.

Stopped in after dinner for some gelato. This place seems to be a favorite. Less than a 10 minute wait. They go through the servings quickly. Some of the popular Flavors were sold out by the time we got there at 730. Oreo was excellent. My son enjoyed his sated caramel.

We've eaten gelato all over the world, and this is about the closest to real Italian gelato we've found in the US. It's creamy and rich, there's a decent selection of flavors, and you just can't find any better around this area. We rarely give five bubbles to a restaurant, but there is nothing to mark this down on.

There was good variety but maybe they're focusing on producing too many flavors and not making a few flavors very good. A couple of things seemed a little icy when they should be creamy good.

The owners moved here from Italy not too, too long ago and started this business. They are true masters of their craft. Everything they offer is authentic Italian and delicious! Having visited a lot of Italy, I'll say that their offerings are as good or better than what you get there. It's soooo good! Try this place and you'll be... More

This gelato is off the chains! The panna cotta caramel and sea salt caramel was awesome! I would definitely recommend the gelato! There are a ton of ice cream shops around, but I'm glad we decided on gorgeous gelato!
