We were met by the personable owners Robin and Joe who let the kids try as many flavors as they wanted prior to ordering. I tried the salted caramel which was outstanding. All in all it was a pleasant surprise... More

Having traveled to Rome in the past, having tasted Gelato in Rome, Robin's is the best by far here in the USA. To get better, you'd have to go to Rome!

We went here twice while in town, and enjoyed everything. The quality is quite high: good consistency and vibrant flavors.

We've visited Rockport a few times and are drawn to this place. Good food, good people and reasonable prices. It can get crowded - wait times and not much room between tables. The food is great and people a real.

They have great gelato. Many flavors to choose from. I had salted caramel. It was very good. The lemon sorbet was delicious too.

Simply the best in Rockport. They were very friendly, the store is immaculate and they easily catered to my son's gluten allergy (celiac disease). Worth every cent.
