Some of the best Gelato I have ever eaten. Worth the trip! Convenient right next to the hotel we were staying in. Tastes great after a trip to Five Guys!

Here and in Brunswick the gelato matches Italy's best. The staff is cheerful and quick. Coffees and teas are also good.

a local success story we've been eating this from a local store for years; the place has a great selection, good fun service and the stuff is just terrific. Almost perfectly flavored and balanced every time.

So much better than the place across the street. Pleasantly surprised by its atmosphere and that it looks like gelaterias in Italy. It was great to see unique flavors and friendly service. The service was actually the best we had over a week's stay in ME. Yum!

The selection of gelato flavors is amazing! Of course you can sample before trying. You purchase a cup size instead of scoops, and can put as many flavors in as will fit. It was amazing customer service and the gelato was delicious! Price wise, comparable to other gelato spots, but an all around better atmosphere and better selection. Well worth... More

In addition to the amazing flavor selection (all were delicious & you can't go wrong) the staff was friendly & helpful. We tried several different flavors & crammed as many as possible into our cups. Very quaint & friendly atmosphere. I would definitely come back.

The Gelato Fiasco definitely wins the Portland gelato wars in terms of having the most flavors. The best part about that is they allow you to combine multiple flavors in one cup so you don't have to choose just one. The prices are a little on the high side, especially since you have to pay a significant premium if you... More

We love all the fun flavors here and always save room after dinner to stroll over here for gelato! It's very tiny and gets really crowded and chaotic, but worth it, especially if you just grab it and head outside.

I do not think I ever saw so many selections of gelato offered in a store. They let you try any flavor you want. Very good taste and texture. I got the chocolate caramel sea salt and it was delicious. I cannot wait to come back here again!
