Robin's Nest is a quaint GELATO shop in Rockport, MA with a myriad of flavor choices, each one more delicious than the last, making it difficult to choose.Each one is cold, creamy, refreshing and has fewer calories than its counterpart, ice cream. The staff let you sample and combine more than one flavor in your serving. What could be more... More

We all stopped off to get ice creams after dinner one evening and enjoyed our very tasty ice creams - delicious!

Having traveled to Rome in the past, having tasted Gelato in Rome, Robin's is the best by far here in the USA. To get better, you'd have to go to Rome!

We went here twice while in town, and enjoyed everything. The quality is quite high: good consistency and vibrant flavors.

We've visited Rockport a few times and are drawn to this place. Good food, good people and reasonable prices. It can get crowded - wait times and not much room between tables. The food is great and people a real.

They have great gelato. Many flavors to choose from. I had salted caramel. It was very good. The lemon sorbet was delicious too.

Simply the best in Rockport. They were very friendly, the store is immaculate and they easily catered to my son's gluten allergy (celiac disease). Worth every cent.

Small shop with a great variety. friendly staff offering samples before you buy, we couldn't make up minds so we ended up getting three scoops each a different flavor so we could enjoy a bit of each. :) You are in a tourist area, prices are as expected.

Stopped in on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Very pleasant staff that immediately offered samples to try flavors we were interested in. My wife and I were both very pleased with our selections. Best Gelato ever. We'll be back.

I've been to Robin's Nest gelato shop a few times and it is excellent! Much better than ice cream...and healthier! They have many flavors and they change to fit the holiday spirit! My favorite is salted caramel and chocolate. And the owners, Robin and Joe, are wonderful too! Very nice. There is also a window seat inside and a nice... More
