We stayed across the street at the Hyatt and grabbed some gelato one of the nights of our stay. They had some tasty and different flavors like blood orange and cranberry that I tried. I decided to go with the dark chocolate and coconut and it was very good. On the down side, the sizes were very small. I'm not... More

Great ice cream with various flavors to choose. Highly recommend Pistachio and different fruit flavor :) Same price but much better taste.

As a local, there are lots of places to get Gelato in Portland. This hands down is the highest quality. Owned by an Italian, made with the highest quality ingredients, its unmatched in town. In addition to the gelato, don't be shy about trying one of the gelato cannoli in the freezer or one of their other desserts in the... More

We had the most amazing gelato here. Their portions are generous, pricing reasonable, and the quality and flavor significantly exceeded our expectations. We will definitely be back! We tried salted caramel and a flavor called gorgeous. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Stopped in for a nice dessert. Gorgeous is a family favorite and nothing says winter in Maine like a cold dessert. At the staff's suggestion I tried the ricotta cheese and dog gelato, wow, rich delicious and weird. A hat trick of gelato.

After having gelato in Rome, I've been hesitant to have it stateside, but when I saw this place was run by an Italian expat, I had to try it. My family and I were not disappointed! This is right on flavor par with what we had in Italy. The stracciatella remains my favorite, and it's just like being in Rome!... More

This delightful shop is owned by Donato and Mariagracia who came from Milano Italy only sx years ago! They have used traditional Italian methods and invented their own flavors. Samples from all as many as you want. Try the egg ricotta and fig if they have it, or the Gorgeous- the namesake. 16-18 gelato flavors every day. 85 in their... More

Lots of good flavors. We tried panacotta and the gorgeous gelato flavors. Both were yummy but a bit pricey for the size of the cup
