“Authentic, flavorful, and friendly - simply put...it's wicked good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

I first heard about Gorgeous Gelato from a Whole Foods staff member. She declared it to be her favorite, so of course I had to give it a whirl. WOW! It is by far the best, and probably only AUTHENTIC gelato I've tasted outside of Italia. Another nearby shop may have a fun name but Gorgeous Gelato's gelato speaks for itself - it's the real deal - it's as authentic as it gets! Save yourself a flight to Italia and instead head to Fore Street to treat your tastebuds and your mood!

“Delicious!”

Absolutely delicious! So rich, so smooth.
Gorgeous Gelato sits on Portland's Fore Street tucked in among various pubs and restaurant, it is a delightful surprise when you want something decadent and indulgent!

“Good gelato - expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

I am impressed with the quality, flavor and unique choices - this is excellent gelato. That said, this is expensive and something you will want to save for special occasions. They have very interesting togo containers that make sure your gelato stays frozen for the ride home, so that is a bonus if you have a longer than 10 minute ride.

“INCREDIBLE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

For a perfect end of evening treat, this is the spot if you are in the Old Port. Have the gelato covered in expresso and you won't be disappointed. We have THREE Gelato Makers in town and this one is the winner.

“Ricotta cheese with fig vs almond gelato.... Fig wins.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2012

The ricotta cheese with fig flavor has generous amount of fig. If you like ice cream with a swirl of caramel, you will love this one.
