WOW. I love Gelato. I did before I came. And I loved it even more when I left. They let us try things before we got them, which was nice, I discovered a new favorite (Burnt butter) Tastes like a butterscotch candy! It was awesome....More

Probably the best gelato and sorbetta we have ever had. We tried 4 types: chocolate, chocolate and raspberry gelato plus Passion fruit sorbet and coconut raspberry sorbet. They were creamy and delicious. The texture of the sorbet was indistinguishable from the gelato.

If you are an ice cream-aholic, this is your place. Every flavor is simply divine. Smooth, full flavored, amazing. You can taste any and all, and be sure to join the red spoon club!

We went here two days in a row and tried a different flavor each time. They were all delicious! It's worth a stop if you are in the area.

We went here every night during our trip to Portland. The gelato was amazing and we were never disappointed. The shop was always crowded, but the staff is excellent at keeping the line moving. You can try as many flavors as you want. You can...More
