Yummy!

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!

The scooper are excellent. Regardless of how many people are in the restaurant they encourage you to taste the different varieties and then scoop a dish with different flavors if you wish, even the smallest taster size can have two flavors. The variety of choices is amazing. People are happy here and there is a great positive feeling. Why the... More

We have been numerous times and have never had a bad experience. They always have a great selection to choose from. I love the fact that they are always willing to help out with local fundraisers.

Spectacular homemade ice-cream! The best in Brunswick. My personal favourites are the lemonade sorbet and cake batter (don't judge!). Get there before the line is out the door!

Had the dark chocolate and naval orange gelato tonight - so so good. Very rich and tasty. I ordered a small but the treat size (a bit smaller than small) would have been better. It's so rich that just a little bit will do. If you love gelato you should not miss this place, it is well worth the trip.... More

I can't have ice cream. Mess it terribly, but lactose issues so..... Gelato Fiasco has a changing daily selection of sorbettos. No milk. If you get there and it is available, the chocolate sorbetto to die for. Like eating fudge. Enjoy it often. Though the review date says February. We go often.

The prices are a little crazy, but when you taste the flavors . . . totally worth it. The worst part: trying to get waited on when people who don't know what they want just hover in front of the cases, dazed - so you sometimes need to be a little aggressive.

Definitely a highlight of visiting Brunswick, ME. I recommend the "taster" size which is about the right volume and you can ask for two flavors. I loved the cardamom ice cream and also the blackcurrant sorbetto. Great combo and there are (almost) infinitely more

Our party of five headed to this establishment after a movie on a recent weekend evening. The place was humming, which gave us time to peruse the menu and the gelato in the cases before our very eyes. One particular staff member was very outgoing and helpful, both with flavors and tastings. As we each settled on our choices (not... More
