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

What more can I say? If you enjoy ice cream, you will go nuts over gelato, and particularly Gelato Fiasco! It is rich and creamy, but not too much. The flavors are great and really well done. This is worth the trip!!!

What a treat to have this boutique gelato salon in little Brunswick, Maine. I especially loved that they stay open after the show at Maine State Music Theatre to serve a special treat named after the show. I had seen "Footloose" and the treat of the day was "Almonds Paradise" based on "Almost Paradise" from the play. What a great... More

Quite an eclectic selection of flavors and a great staff... college town atmosphere and families are very welcomed there as well. The gelato is really fantastic with fresh colorful falvors and an extensive variety of flavors - if you're not sure, you can get a sample spoon to make sure it'll be to your liking.

This restaurant has it together. There are dozens of different gelatos to chose from. The presentations are beautiful. The servers offer you samples of any flavor you desire to try. The place was busy, yet we felt that we received personal attention and were served quickly.

Gelato Fiasco always has an amazing selection of both traditional and interesting flavors, each as intense and magnificent as the one before. My favorites are Maine Blueberry Crisp and Toasted Coconut. I stop by any time people visit me and they all say the same thing: "I don't think I'll ever be able to eat regular ice cream again!"
