“Italy in Maine!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in after lunch to grab a quick snack. The guy behind the counter was great. The place was cute very reminiscent of being in a gelato shop in Rome. There's trip advisor review reminders everywhere. This place knows their ranked #1 and does its best to keep it that way. As we were about to walk out little old Italian grandma came out to say thanks for visiting.

“Absolutely the BEST Gelato!!!!!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you are visiting Portland, you have to try this Gelato. You will be in love. It's that good. I visited them when they first opened two years ago, and I was instantly impressed. Been going back every chance I get. You have to try the affogato, which is espresso poured over the gelato. Absolutely AMAZING!!!! It will change your life. ;-)

“Just like being in Italy”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We stopped in last August while on vacation and visiting with a cousin. We had just been to Italy earlier in the year and this gelato took us right back. We didn't try any other gelato places while we were there, so we can't compare it to others in the area. We'll definitely be putting it on our list of "must-do"s each time we make it back to Portland!

We do enjoy Gorgeous Gelato. It's always a place we hit up when we eat out. The flavors are so full, and fresh, and creamy, it truly is an experience of Italy
