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

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!

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!!
