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!!

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.

Small shop in Sligo town with fabulous home-made gelato by Fabio. A few tables for eating in or carryout. Well worth a visit.

I had a mix berry icecream with a baby cone which was heaven. I find that homemade icecream is way better then buying it in the shops. This place made it a great example, definately coming back here again as the weather is picking up nicely!

This is a really nice place to go. Like most gems, small in size and big in value. Always reminds me of Freddy's joint from the TV series House of Cards - small, friendly, with a strong emphasis on quality. The ice-cream is delicious, varied and unique. The coffee is strong, yet smooth and delicious. What I like most about... More
