Best Ice cream you will find from here to Italy. There is a variety of steady flavours eg. chocolate, strawberry, cheescake & specials change monthly and weekly depending. The cones are incredibly good value at 2.40 for a "baby" scoop that is most generous! As to the ice cream itself, it is rich, creamy and loaded with flavour. Personal favourite... More

The best Gelato for years was in Dublin until we discovered Fabios. We've had many flavors and have never had a bad one!

I have to agree with the vast majority of reviewers on this site that Fabio's Gelato is THE BEST - better than the majority of Gelatarias' in Italy, never mind Sligo. Sligo is lucky to have you FABIO. The size of the shop is not what reviewers should be talking about here - it is the pure quality of the... More

Excellent icecream, authentic Italian vibe, has a holiday feel to this tiny little icecream shop, definitely worth a visit and you won't be disappointed as the icecream is wonderful.

Fabio makes his own ice-cream, he always has a great range of flavours, fresh and delicious, really the best ice-cream in town. He is really nice too. A small shop but worth looking out for. Buy a large one, small won't be enough.

Lovely little shop. Friendly happy staff. Very busy. Highly recommend the "plain ice cream with forest fruit and meringue" and the pistachio with white chocolate. Icecream is made onsite. Prepare to be addicted!
