It doesn't get any more authentic than this! The staff is always friendly and helpful and the gelato cannot be beat.

There are a few gelato places in Portland but Gorgeous Gelato is the best because it makes real Italian gelato, just like I had in Italy. Creamy and with a variety of flavors, the gelato is always a treat to the palate.

The gelato was certainly very good and if you are in Portland and in the mood for gelato this will certainly make you happy. However, I was expecting better given the reviews. I found the flavors very mild and I enjoy a more bold punch...More

Hi ChellyLynn, We are very sorry about that because we really put a lot of passion in what we do. That guy, already under control, doesn't work anymore in our shop. Thanks a lot, Mariagrazia and Donato

Numerous flavor selections including a not so bright/dull green pistachio flavor which by the color alone meant it was great, tasted even better. Friend had sherbet and also enjoyed it. Take away for your stroll on the street or sit down at the shop.

Great flavors, texture and variety. The owners came to Portland from Milan and Gorgeous Gelato became an instant hit, even in winter.
