Description: Portland's only authentic Italian gelato shop! Welcome to paradise !!
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Really...don't miss this little spot of heaven. If you've tried so-called gelato and been disappointed...if you think there's nothing better than Hagen-Daz or Ben & Jerry...you're in for a treat. In the small spotless shop, we were served by a charming Italian Senora who owns it with her husband. She served us one large cup containing two generous scoops with two spoons saying, "You will share, no?" No...my husband ordered an identical serving for himself. That was our lunch!

The shop is not hard to find... take Union St. a block or so up from Commercial and turn right on Fore...enjoy!

Brings back memories of Italy! The Gelato is very good. The shop was very clean, cute, and friendly. The owner will gladly give you a sample. Of course you will want to buy a cup! They even cater!

We fell in love with the gelato here, but just to be sure, did go to Gelato Fiasco across the street (since many locals recommended it) - no contest, Gorgeous Gelato wins hands down. For the record, we have had raspberry sorbetto, blueberry sorbetto, lemon sorbetto, and Bacio, Gorgeous, Seabiscuit, Noir, and Coffee Cream gelato. Gorgeous' has a satisfying denseness - almost a chewiness, and the flavor is dense and multilayered, too.
