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!

When I first saw Fabio's, I looked on Tripadvisor to see the reviews first and they were very impressive! The shop is very small and since alot of people come to this place it is very hard to move around in and usually you have to line up from outside! There were some very interesting flavours available but I went... More

I am not Italian but it is clear that this gelato is authentic and not just full of sugar. Fabio is a character :) and well worth a stop!!

Dropped in today on the way home from a weekend in Donegal. After reading the reviews I decided I had to give this ice cream a go. And it was well worth it. The white chocolate pistachio swirl crunch ice cream is sublime!!

If your'e after a refreshing, delicious, and authentic Italian ice cream get down to Fabio's. With a huge smile and a hearty 'ciao' you will be welcomed in the door to this tiny little shop. Let Fabio himself recommend the ice cream special and you can't go wrong. All ice cream is made fresh in store too. You cant ask... More

The owner has a great personality and the gelato is as good as Italy's. I had the tree scoops with vanilla, hazelnut, and chocolate. The trifecta!

My family was looking for a late supper and happened upon Fabio's. The place was warm and friendly. The food and house wine were excellent. The prices were in line with other places in the area.
