Two things to know: 1) the gelato is fantastic 2) the selection of flavors is ridiculously large. Great spot for a sweetie.

We were here on vacation and it was our last day and we had to make sure we stopped in. Even at 11am the kids were loving it. Great flavors and we are so glad we now can get it in Rhode Island at Whole Foods.

My family of 5 stopped there at the suggestion of another friend on our way home to Connecticut. These guys make truly high quality gelato with amazing flavors. We each had about 3 flavors in a very generously sized small serving. A must if you are in this area.

Like much of the neighborhood this place had a funky yet friendly vibe to it. The girls behind the counter were super patient with all the customers and were happy to let everyone try as many flavors as they wanted; and considering all the interesting, creative flavors they had, there was a lot to choose from. We visited around Easter... More

This place has so many choices of Gelato its unbelievable. I am glad I do not live nearby or I would be there trying flavors all the time. It was so delicious and I think its crazy depending on how many degress below zero it is that day you get that percent off the gelato. INSANE!

This gelato is so good. They have different flavors than everywhere else. All the flavors are so unique and there is a flavor for everyone. I had the cinnamon gelato and the caramel brownie bit ice cream. You can also buy random ice cream flavors. I would not do this because the random flavors are the flavors they do not... More

My brother, sister, and I went into Gelato Fiasco after dinner. The samples are unlimited and the flavors are a good blend of American and Italian. I had the cake batter and an almond/chocolate flavor. I have been to the Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick and that was equally as delicious. I really enjoy the atmosphere of both of the Gelato... More

There are TWO gelato stores across the street from one another but the crew at this one gives it the definite edge, especially Cat and Stef who had smiles and more. Also, if you think Gelato in the winter is nuts, it's great all year PLUS they have a deal: for every degree below freezing (32 f) you get a... More
