I’ve traveled all over the world including up and down Italy. This is the real deal. Simply delicious solid beautiful gelato made by Italians with the right machines and never ever too cold. Iced or refrigerator tasting. Dynamite and sinful

Rich & creamy gelato is a great idea any day regardless of how cold it is outside. Cute little shop, perfect location to take a break from shopping. Probably the best gelato I've ever had.

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.
