Gelato was excellent, the owner friendly, and the store very clean and well presented. This will make an excellent addition to your trip if you are looking for something savory, sweet, and well presented. Come try it.

My family stopped by after a nice dinner. What a way to top off it off! The gelato was very light and flavorful. Loved the dark chocolate. One of the best gelato places this side of the Atlantic. Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland.

We have enjoyed gelato all over Italy - mainland and Sicily - and this gelato is as good as the best we enjoyed there. Definitely fresh and authentic. Don't bother to eat gelato anywhere else in Portland! Our favorite flavors - bacio, hazelnut and dark chocolate. And the Italian coffee is great too!

Gorgeous Gelato, will make you feel like you are back in Italy. Truly authentic flavors and a wonderful owner. Dark chocolate is as good (if not better) than the number one flavor Gorgeous - the Capacino's are great too.

We live in Portland and have the opportunity to eat gelato in the various establishments in town. We think Gorgeous Gelato is simply the best. It is a family business. The owners, who came to Portland from Italy, take care to provide a quality gelato to all its customers, locals and visitors. We love it.

The very best gelato this side of Italy. All gelato and pastries made on premises by owner and his wife. All natural ingredients and so many wonderful natural flavors it makes choosing difficult, but they let you have tastes! Espresso, latte's etc equally great. There is another gelatos place a few doors down make sure this is the one you... More
