Excellent Gelato

Stopped in at Gelato Fiasco during a recent visit to Portland. The gelato was excellent as was the friendly service. Large selection of flavors and staff is very happy to allow sampling. Try the salted chocolate pretzel gelato.

We enjoyed testing the gelato before we decided what to buy. Many of the selections were similar. I wish they would have had more varieties. The portion sizes were excellent.

After a meal at Flatbread Company we were taken here. I wasn't going to have any as I was stuffed but I can never resist ice cream. It was epic. Better than Ben & Jerry's (sorry Vermont). You only need the kids size as it is big enough😃

Portions are huge and prices are fair. It's hard to choose a flavor because all of the look delicious. Got a medium mix of Coconut and Dark chocolate and couldn't finish it... Will be back tomorrow!

I love gelato, and noticed this shop while my wife and I were walking around the Old Port area of Portland. We stopped in after dinner to try some of the flavors. There is a variety, and we liked the different flavors we tried.

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.
