Stopped for a coffee and ice cream and wasn't disappointed. Owner great fun and passionate about the ice cream he makes and serves. The Florence flavour the best. Would go again. All good.

Me and my son go here EVERY Saturday and look forward to our visit immensely! The latte is definitely the best in the world and absolutely perfect every time, and the home made ice-cream is to die for, there is a flavour for every taste imaginable. Fabio himself is a little diamond! He makes every visit memorable by remembering all... More

The only thing Fabio's can't do, is make bad ice cream! There has been nothing here, that I didn't like, whether it was orange and mango sorbet, bulls blood ice cream, banoffee pie or just plain ole vanilla, it always tastes sublime! 5/5 and I'd advise any one who's in Sligo to visit for sure!

Come here every so often since it was founded. Always been a wonderful experience from the delightful owner to the fantastic ice cream. Fabios offers a wide selection of ice creams and some dairy free also which is handy. Aside from the 'gelato' there is the pizza which I would recommend and a selection of ciabattas. Have been very pleased... More

Fabio's is a real find; it is a small (4 seats, max) cafe/ice cream parlour where you can order a delicious pizza, drink a cup of good quality organic coffee or sample some of the very tempting home-made gelatos. The flavours change often are always interesting, imaginative combinations. The atmosphere is cosy and warm and Fabio himself is chatty and... More

Tasty gelato and a nice proprietor. Real Italian recipes, made with Irish dairy. Blah blah blah blah 100 characters

This is a very pleasant place to stop by for a coffee, a bit off lunch or , of course, a scoop or two of gelato! It stands out against the other rather more average eateries in Sligo.

I'm a regular visitor of Fabio's. A really nice guy, with what has to be the best Ice Cream for miles around! You can be assured that you will always feeled welcome at Fabio's. Probably best for takeaways as the place is not too big with limited seats (the only downfall). Amazing ice cream, tasty organic coffee and a warm... More

Every one of our visits to Sligo would not be complete with out a visit to Fabio's. It is a taste adventure each time trying out the special of the day or the seasonal blends that are produced to suit the occasion or season. My favourite seasonal flavours when they are in production are Cinnamon, Chocolate and chilli and Christmas... More

We found this place by accident but so glad we did as this was definitely the best ice cream I've ever tasted! The flavours are really unique and absolutely delicious - try the coconut, really creamy and delicate. If you are in Sligo you must visit Fabio's, it's tiny but packed with charm!
