There are a lot of different flavours of ice-cream you can try, and you can mix 2 or 3 in one cup. I had something with ginger, something with sea salt... Very unusual in a good way :)

Every time we visit Portland Maine we visit Gelato Fiasco and enjoy the best ever gelato. We have tried almost a dozen flavors and they are all superb but my favorite is Dark Chocolate Noir . There is nothing else on the market like it. Deep dark delicious cocoa flavor and velvety smooth and heaven on earth. Thank you Gelato... More

Gelato Fiasco has an amazing assortment of gelato and sorbetto. Tried several flavors and all were very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

There is an amazing array of flavors to choose from (tasting is encouraged), and they are all delicious. Love the place and wouldn't miss it if you are in the Old Port.

If I were to run a marathon, or get to my ideal weight, Gelato Fiasco would be my first stop. Sinfully good gelato. Love their chocolate and coffee concoctions (although the last time we went, they were out of espresso and other coffee flavored gelatos). Our out of town friends from NYC were impressed.

Yup, this gelato is so yummy that I've been known to make a special trip in a snowstorm. They have fabulous seasonal flavors, an ever-changing selection, and are pretty darn nice, to boot! Don't worry if the place looks mobbed, you'll still get speedy service and the chance to taste every flavor in the case. ps the sorbetto is always... More

The sorbeto here is the best selection and the best tasting I have ever had. Rather than 1 fruit flavor like at most ice cream places, there are usually at least 5 - 10 choices, from Dark chocolate Noir (my favorite), to pumpkin! As someone who can not eat dairy, this is a true gift that tastes like ice cream... More
