“Scoop of Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2012

Delicous, refreshing, heavenly! Better than ice cream and not as sinful - 94% fat free!!!! The Godiva Chocolate is the best, so chocolately!!! It's great mixed with salted Carmel! The rest of the flavors are just as good. Make sure you visit before leaving Rockport, you won't be disappointed. The best gelato - you can taste the love - it is homemade and all natural!!

“Great gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2012 via mobile

A very hot day in Rockport, we needed a cool down & happened upon robins nest. What a delightful little place & a delightful couple running it. So many to choose from , what to pick? We were able to try as many as we liked - white chocolate, black raspberry? I had the key lime pie flavour & my husband tried the mojito sorbet - both absolutely delicious! You will not be disappointed!

“DESSERT HEAVEN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012

They offer unique and classic gelato flavors. We tried Orange Stracciatella, Black Raspberry, Caramel Brownie and Grapenut Custard, which were all good. They also offer Cold drinks and Philadelphia Water Ice, a nod to the owner Joe's hometown. We spent some time talking with the owners, Robin and Joe, they're the best and gave us tips on areas to checkout in Rockport. It's a tourist and family friendly place. Great for dessert or a snack. I highly recommend this place and will definitely go back if I'm in the area.

“Great Gelato place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

In fact, currently the only pace for gelato in Rockport! They have a diversity of flavors, including Girl Scout Cookie Thin Mint, Chocolate Raspberry, Grape Nut Custard, Creamsicle, and about a dozen more. Owned and operated by a very pleasant husband and wife team (Robin and Joe?), who were full of hospitality and enthusiasm. Not a very descriptive name for a gelato place, but maybe they have other offerings at other times of the year?
