“OUTSTANDING!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

OMG! You have not had gelato like this; fantastic flavors, reasonable prices and generous servings. We also stopped at the one in Brunswick since we liked this one so much. It's small, but worth finding.

“Delicious gelato”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

There are several options for gelato in the Old Port. Chose this one since it's a local store. Thankfully, not crowded when we were there. I can see how other reviewers mention that it can be difficult to order when there is a crowd. There is not an organized plan for trying samples or ordering. It is nice to sample as much as you want, and also enjoyed being able to combine flavors in the dish. The cost seemed a little high compared to local ice cream spots, but the taste, texture and flavors were wonderful, and since we were doing this for a treat, I didn't mind the cost that much. There is seating inside and out. I would not hesitate to suggest this to my friends, and I will definitely come here again.

“The Fiasco was ordering”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

The gelato was really good; but this place is really poorly laid out. People crowded in, kids getting pushed out of the way, and a free for all to get waited on. They provide samples, if you can get there attention. Other places in town with good gelato and a little more organized....especially if you have little ones with you....

Delicious gelato reminiscent of Italy. Love that you can have several flavors in one cup! Very fresh and inventive.
