Delicious gelato

I've had the opportunity to try real gelato in Italy before and this gelato is not as good, but is still delicious. I like how they do the special 1% off your gelato for every degree below zero during the winter. I can't wait to go back to for some gelato from here during the hot days during the... read more

The gelato and the coffee are excellent. Just an all around nice place. Easy sitting and good people.

We just love Gelato Fiasco! The gelato is amazing, from the old standbys (dark chocolate sea salt caramel is a personal favorite!) to the seasonal/ occasionally flavors, all delicious. We've also never had a single unfriendly staff member- always super nice and many know us by face, if not by name. My husband and I have spent the remainder of... More

Can't go wrong with any of their tasty, high quality treats. Sampling is half the fun and they are courteous about it. Skip dessert at your nearby meal and head over there. Plenty of sit down spots to relish the treat and there's free filtered water cups in the back

Cute little place on the main street. We were staying in the area at a hotel and were in need of a little sweet treat. So at 10:00 at night we ventured out not knowing what to expect and never having gelato before and were pleasantly surprised. They have seats and sofas to enjoy your gelato on as well as... More

This place is gorgeous with it seems endless types of Gelato flavors! First time I've crossed over to this unique spin on Ice Cream! Staff was very nice and location was perfect! This is a must check out in Brunswick!

Best gelato ever. There is nothing like it. I'm glad you can buy this in select stores now, but nothing beats getting it at their store front. Always consistent and delicious and I still haven't tried all of the flavors.

I have been to gelateria in Rome, Florence, Merano, Bolzano, Dobbiaco, Parma, Munich, and many others. In fact, I once paid over $25 for an "ice cream cone" outside the duomo in Florence. In short, I have been around... Gelato fiasco ranks quite high on my list. Certainly it is number 1 in Maine, New England and possibly USA. I... More

Locals of all ages crowd this place year-round. For a good reason...or many of them. All kinds of flavors, and even after traveling in Italy, I have to say this might be the best I've had. Plus, it's a great story. Very local, young entrepreneurs nailed it their first time out!!! Don't miss it. Public parking behind buildings across the... More
