Best ice- cream in Sligo

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.

Amazing Italian gelato! Service is prompt and sampling of the freshly made ice cream is permitted and even encouraged! I cannot walk past it!

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!

We sauntered in and I was expecting a standard sort of small ice-cream parlour job. Couldn't have been more wrong. For starters Fabio's spot is TINY! Initially, I couldn't see anyone so I had a gander about and admired the sheer character of the place- it's filled with all sorts of cool random minutiae and some eclectic tunes were playing...

Amazing flavours made on the premises. Lived the Nutella version and the rum'n'raisin. Traditional Gelato. Well worth a visit.

Went with hubby & 3 kids after recommended by my brother...& let me say this-their ice cream is to die for. I don't mean it's nice, it's unbelievably outstanding! Home made, hand made, no junk, just pure taste. The coffee is really amazing also. They also sell tubs of ice cream to go for 2-3 people, 5-6 people or more...... More

Called into Fabio's while strolling around the streets of Sligo. This is not a restaurant but a small ice cream parlour. We both had ice cream from the varied selection on display and it was very nice. I also had a really good cup of coffee. Worth a visit

Really lovely ice cream, genuine Italian gelato in a range of flavours as you would expect from a gelateria. Not actually a restaurant but hey, this is trip advisor.

Still thinking at the bull's blood flavour after my trip to Donegal. We had a quit stop in Sligo and we checked Fabio's. Simply the best ice cream we ever had. Thanks !!
