Met the owner, he was wonderful! Felt like I was in Italy again! My mom and I enjoyed it so much we went back for round two! Gelato is made in the back closest thing I’ve had since being in Florence!

Actually was lucky to come upon a mobile venue serving this great Gelato at the Portland Head Light. Can't wait to visit the store itself.
