An amazing variety of sorbets and gelattos make this a terrific end to any meal. Lines are almost always out the door, and for good reason -- the sweet sensations are spectacular. A friendly crew of counter staff will allow you an advance taste of any flavor. This is also one of the few "night-spots" open late in Brunswick --... More

Three of us were served and each really liked the gelato. There were many to choose from. Ambience was good and not too crowded. They'll give you samples.

Gelato Fiasco is an amazing treat on one of the most quaint main streets in Maine. The servers at GF are pleasant and helpful. They are always patient when "browsing" through the many flavors. Tasting before choosing is always allowed! Well worth checking out this yummy gelato shop!

Unbelievably good. Every bite is heaven. Creamy, smooth and flavorful. Made on premises. Different flavors depending on season.

One of the local favorites, here in the Brunswick Topsham area. This is Really Good Gelato. They make special flavors varying through the seasons and flavors for local events like shows at the Maine State Music Theater. I like that the gelato actually tastes like its name: If it is mango, it tastes like mango. If strawberry, it actually tastes... More

Rich, incredibly creamy - the small size is plenty! We will find reasons to go to Brunswick between trips to Italy.

Every night during our stay in Brunswick we went to the Gelato Fiasco. The favors were great - it was difficult to choose between them. The staff was friendly and courteous and the place was always crowded. Best gelato ever! Wish they had more stores throughout New England and in New York.

My mom, son, and I went to Gelato Fiasco this past Saturday. Their selection of Gelato's were amazing. The staff was super friendly and allowed us to sample as many flavors as we wanted until we found our favorites. These were way better than your regular ice cream. I look forward to going back in the near future to try... More

after a week in Italy you'd think we were spoiled for gelato. This local maine company is out of Brunswick and the Gelato is fantastic. Fantastic.
