Just like the ice cream you get in Italy. A very small ice cream bar opposite to Henry Lyons shop and Lyons Cafe. Friendly service.

Fabio's serves the best ice cream I have ever tasted! They offer a range of unique flavors with something for everyone's taste. The coffee is quite nice too if you don't fancy something cold!

I always enjoy visiting Fabio when in Sligo.He produces amazing ice cream and coffee and sandwiches from his tiny shop in town. His ice cream is also available in the better supermarkets.

The Nicest ice-cream you'll get in Sligo. Only downfall is its very expensive, but it's worth it. Employees are friendly.

After strolling through town, we stumbled upon Fabio's, and decided to treat ourselves to gelato. There were interesting flavors to chose from, and the quality was excellent.
