The Gelato Fiasco has some of the best gelato outside of Italy! They have delicious and daring flavors and the quality is always consistently outstanding!

I experience regular cravings for Gelato Fiasco, particularly their mango flavor. The service is always great too.

I am new to this gelato scene having just tried it for the first time at Gelato Fiasco's competitor across the street in February. My daughter told me I had to try here the next time I was in the area and I am so glad I listened! Even more flavors to choose from here....better atmosphere (more comfy for seating... More

I fell in love with Italian gelato while studying in Italy as a college student. When I first moved to Portland 5 years ago Gelato Fiasco (then only in Brunswick) was the only gelato place in the Portland area. My initial impression was that it was the worst gelato that I've had anywhere. It is also rather overpriced. This impression... More

Didn't know gelato was such a big thing in Portland and didn't get. To sample the competition across the street but this was very tasty and they have an incredible selection. Staff was very helpful in defining which selections were gluten free for my wife. We liked all the flavones we tried.

Delicious gelato and so many flavors to choose from! They constantly have new flavors and don't worry if you can't make up your mind, they will let you sample as many as you want until you decide.

Having only started coming here periodically about six months ago, I am a fan. The salted caramel is my weakness but there are many other great flavors. The staff has always been pleasant and gladly offers little tastings of flavors to help you make up your mind, which is not an easy thing to do given the array of tasty... More

Greeted by very friendly staff we sampled many flavours before settling on 2 to combine in 1 dish. I had pumpkin pie and salted caramel and it was so good! A fun place to visit with very nice staff, generous portions and late hours. Try it you'll love their gelato!

We actually meant to go to the gelato place across the street, but came upon this one first and went in without double checking the name. The staff was so friendly and happy and the flavors plentiful we didn’t even care we went to the wrong spot. The gelato was amazing! We shared 4 snack size flavors and it was... More
