Not really the best gelato in town. It also is within 1 block of amazing ice cream. Not naming the place but they had a huge line. I know why. Alotto has a good location but with sub-par gelato. The freezer case temp seems too high making for a soupy treat that is more like ice milk or Dairy Queen... More

Delicious gelato and very nice employees. Banana and chai were my favorites, my husband and son couldn't get enough of the chocolate.

We had a scoop of rose and one of marionberry. Delicious! These two really suit the city of Portland. We saw the crazy long line at the other place on a hot Sunday afternoon and came here. Very pleased.

The Gelato here is amazing! There are so many different flavors to choose from. My favorite is the cinnamon but they don't always have it. Their Hot Chocolate is really great too. There staff is always amazing as well.

Have gone here quite a few times over the past couple of years. The prices have gone up, and today we got the smallest portion ever. Two scoop price for one small scoop of gelato. We've noticed the flavors never change either. My favorite is amaretto and they've never had it. We will just follow the crowd to Salt and... More

By robbed, I mean the price for the quantity of treat you now get. Years ago, I stopped into this location while my uncle was in the hospital nearby. I'd heard good reviews of the gelato, and had seen lines coming out of the door here that seemed very long for the size of the shop. Enticed, I tried it... More

Great great gelato! Creamy and very flavorful. I tasted 3 kinds before settling on the salted caramel with the dark chocolate. I had a 'single' in a cone and the portion was huge. My daughter had peanut butter and it was excellent. There was no line at 3 in the afternoon, and the woman behind the counter was helpful and... More

We live in the neighborhood, and have been making regular trips on hot summer nights to Alotto Gelato for several years. The gelato there is quite good, and there's no need to stand in a ridiculously long line to get it. Portion sizes are perfectly adequate. If you like gelato (and not everyone does -- it is made with milk,... More
