This is a great place to step into while in Portland. The gelato is very delicious and fresh. The place has a nice ambience to it as well.

I was totally unprepared for how perfect this Gelato is. I have lived in and visited Italy for years - this venue is among the best I have ever enjoyed. AUTHENTIC! Gelato tremendamente delizioso. Non ho mai avuto questo gelato fuori dall'Italia. Ha anche un'autentica bar espresso. Non escludi questa posizione se sei vicino a Portland, ME!

This is a destination gelato place. Flavors change every day, but if you can get the sea salt caramel, that was clearly my favorite. The owners have a good story to tell about coming from Italy and ending up in Portland. Good location a block from the waterfront.

Stopped in on our way back to our hotel. Never had Gelato before but I will again. Seemed to be popular as there were many patrons. As we were about to enter a man walking by said, "Best Gelato in Portland"! It was a very positive experience.

Was kind of grumpy this morning. Went here and walked out with a huge smile and delicious cannoli in my belly. The gelato was incredible and the guy was so nice and sincere, it really made my day.

We stopped for a gelato dessert after dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the great variety of flavors. It was difficult to select one, but I was offered free samples. My choice, sea salt caramel, was delicious, creamy with lots of flavor. Yummy!

This little shop has amazing gelato and cannolis. The gelato is as good as any I have had in Italy. A wide variety of flavors and fairly reasonable prices. Try the salted caramel or the dark chocolate. Dynamite flavor. Staff very friendly. Expect crowds in season.

If you want a cheaper, factory-made, mass market product, walk across the street to Gelato Fiasco. If you want an exquisite, delectable, organic, HANDMADE RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU gelato adventure that you will never forget, Gorgeous is your destination. My boyfriend and I go here every year when we come to Portland. Yesssssss.

Gelato, espresso, and disarrono! How could you go wrong. Always stop in when in the old port for a cannoli and espresso.

Hands down, the best in our region! Even better than Morano Gelato in Chesnut Hill :) Delizioso! White Chocolate and Mokkacino are my favorites.
