Incredible Gelato!

By far the best gelato I have ever had the pleasure of consuming. The taste was divine, as was the smoothness. Finding this store was the happiest accident of my entire trip to Maine. The service was beyond top notch as well. Very courteous and polite.

The Gelato is very well made, and the flavors offered are perfect for the season you are in. The service is exceptional and a simple treat becomes a really cool experience of relaxation and enjoyment. Highly recommend. They also reward local schools with coupons , so the young readers get a treat for their love of reading.

The employees are GREAT. They have at least 15 flavors to choice from, and they offer you a small sample of any flavor you are curious about. The Gelato is FANTASTIC. Places to eat inside and outside. Friendly service and a great sweet treat.

I, too, have had gelato all over Italy and some are better than others, though I am certain all consider themselves "authentic." Fiasco has its own style, as does the competition across the street, but I found the Fiasco products to be incredibly fresh with flavorings applied with a gentle, sophisticated and educated hand. My favorite was the lightly spiced... More

So many wonderful flavors to choose from. Very nice to be able to sample as many as you want to help to make the right choice. Be sure to sample the flavor before selecting. Some flavors were very over powering for my taste. But, overall delicious !

If you cannot find a flavor to wrap your tongue around, you are not alive. The gelato is so fresh and clean.
