Gorgeous Gelato is BY FAR the best gelato on the face of the earth. We will not go anywhere else. In fact, a competitor opened up across the street on the same block and even though their gelato is good, we refuse to even step in the door. Moving across the street was in extremely poor taste. Typically, my husband and I will have a nice meal out, like last night, at a fun Portland restaurant and then decline dessert so we can have our favorite Gorgeous Gelato. We have also been known to take home a quart (you can mix the flavors) and to deliver a quart to our daughter and son-in-law and granddaughter as a special treat. If you visit Portland, you MUST have this gelato. The espresso is fabulous too.

The gorgeous gelato had a very calm and relaxed atmosphere. The perfect place to sit down at enjoy a bowl of their amazing gelato. You can try a small taste before you buy it. But it wouldn't matter because every flavor is delightful.

There were about 15 to 20 flavours to choose from. Though some of the flavours were the routine ones like chocolate, strawberry, etc, they tasted totally different from the norm. The flavours were rich and intense. Just fabulous creamy gelato. Tried the whisky chocolate flavour - unique and enjoyable. Texture-wise, just right.

Tried the espresso, too. They used Lavazza coffee beans. Slightly Higher acidity than my preference. But still very nice espresso.

The staff was very friendly. Nice cozy seating area.

I really have nothing bad to say except that the other gelato shop (Fiasco) is better. Gorgeous is fantastic. You really can't go wrong.

My husband and I came to Portland, ME for a friends wedding. We just love this town! So many great restaurant choices. Once we stopped into Gorgeous Gelato....we were hooked! It's amazing! Fresh, creamy and not overloaded with sugar. Worth the trip.
