I could live here

This is my favorite place to bring visitors. My husband and I stop by here about once a week. The salted caramel, the blueberry crisp, the maple sap tap, or even the sriracha - oh my gosh, I could go on and on.

A perfect ending to a wonderful day in Brunswick. The servers are more than happy to let you try their creative flavors. The kids ordered their Gelato with waffle cones - these cones had a unique taste to them - maybe an extra hint of nutmeg? A laid-back sidewalk with tables and chairs made for a great way to enjoy...

What a wonderful experience for my mouth and tongue. Our friends liked it too. They have a large selection of gelato flavors and if you like may have a taste of every one. They do have chocolate and vanilla (not the usual, very inventive and unique taste) but then you can chose from so many more: smore's, coconut, expresso crunch,... More

No Cold Treat has ever been this HOT!! I had gelato before 2 times from a different "gelateria", but I was not a fan.  I wasn't in the mood for a frozen treat or anything sweet at all, but my husband went into The Gelato Fiasco  and came out quickly with a mountain of chocolate gelato with pretzels mixed throughout. The... More

These are people who love what they do. I had the vanilla and chocolate. Excellent! If you cannot do these right, you might as well close the doors. I cannot imagine returning to Brunswick without another visit to the Gelato Fiasco. This is high-end, quality Gelato. Well worth the price.

Simply stated.. Gelato Fiasco is in a league all its own. Every other gelato I've tried should be embarrassed to call themselves gelato. With an ever changing choice of flavors, it's impossible to get tired of this delicious treat. Tonight we tried the Midori melon gelato and the pistachio. Yumm. My favorite is still the caramel sea salt gelato. It... More

If you love chocolate, try their very dark chocolate flavor. Really delicious! A remarkable variety of flavors. Also have espresso and cappuccino. Free wi-fi also.

Gelato fiasco serves mediocre gelato with good customer service. Back in home NJ/NY there are countless gelato shops that would put the gelato at this place to shame. I guess this place is as busy as it is because of the fact that it's the only ice cream, gelato, or frozen yogurt shop on Main St.

Great Gelato!! Taste the flavors...no charge. Pick your favorite and have some fun!! You'll like the smooth taste of Italian ice cream. The flavors "POP" in your mouth and now that the weather is warm...visit for some cool times!
