Went with my 5 and 8 year old nephews who were craving ice cream. They are now converts to gelato. 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

My wife and I have vacationed in Rockport for 4 straight years. Robin's Nest is one of the required stops. We love the gelato, and Robin is an absolute delight! Highly recommended!!

The staff let you sample and combine more than one flavor in your serving. What could be more... 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.

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.

Small shop with a great variety. friendly staff offering samples before you buy, we couldn't make up minds so we ended up getting three scoops each a different flavor so we could enjoy a bit of each. :) You are in a tourist area, prices are as expected.
