Homemade Gelato...favors too numerous to mention....this creamy dessert is amazing! Sample each mouth watering one...mix them up to create your own. Loved the experience.

As a member of the red spoon society I get a free "treat" on my b-day. The young lady behind the counter said that the pumpkin pie gelato would pair wonderfully with the pumpkin cream cheese gelato, and she was right!

I'm from Philadelphia, where Capogiro is rated by National Geographic as the world's best gelato. Capogiro IS fantastic. But, I am here to say that Gelato Fiasco is slightly better! They encourage sampling! And you can get as many flavors as you want in whatever size you want. That kind of service is not practical in a big city like... More

Gelato Fiasco has become a staple of Maine Street Brunswick over the past 4-5 years or so with locals and especially with local college students. I often wonder what makes this place continually popular year after year even in the cold winter months and the answer is really simple: quality. Gelato Fiascos offers a high range of flavors, all unique,... More

Stopped in for a gelato and ended up getting a copy of their Thunder of the God's coffee, made by pour-over method. Not a quick process so enjoy it. The smell of their coffee is awesome. I tried a little dish of the vanilla with chocolate in it and it was very good. The coffee and gelato together made my... More

The Gelato Fiasco was hands down THE BEST frozen dessert I have ever had. I am a vegan and they had MANY sorbetto flavors to choose from. We were in Maine for 2 weeks and probably visited this place at least 5 times. After I got back to I emailed the franchise and told them how much I loved the... More

Better than the old country gelaterias because of the awesome array of innovative flavors. Fiasco is generous with tastes of abundant flavors.

Great flavors, natural ingredients, gelatto and sorbetto. They even have sugar free versions of some sorbetto flavors. They let you taste before you buy. It's even popular on cold Maine winter nights..

Yummy, rich gelato!!! Great choice of flavors. Honestly, I was in such sugar shock I don't remember much...but what I do remember was decadent and delicious. Indulge!

As a long term Brunswick resident I never thought an "ice cream" parlor could be so successful year round. The gelato is fantastic and no matter how crowded it is, one can taste as many flavors as you like before deciding on what you want to order. The staff are friendly and pleasant. I just wish they had more chairs... More
