“What an ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

I am not Italian but it is clear that this gelato is authentic and not just full of sugar. Fabio is a character :) and well worth a stop!!

“A Taste of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Dropped in today on the way home from a weekend in Donegal. After reading the reviews I decided I had to give this ice cream a go. And it was well worth it. The white chocolate pistachio swirl crunch ice cream is sublime!!

“Fabios”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

If your'e after a refreshing, delicious, and authentic Italian ice cream get down to Fabio's. With a huge smile and a hearty 'ciao' you will be welcomed in the door to this tiny little shop. Let Fabio himself recommend the ice cream special and you can't go wrong. All ice cream is made fresh in store too. You cant ask for more than that.

“Line out the door, wait well worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

The owner has a great personality and the gelato is as good as Italy's. I had the tree scoops with vanilla, hazelnut, and chocolate. The trifecta!

“Welcome travelers”

My family was looking for a late supper and happened upon Fabio's. The place was warm and friendly. The food and house wine were excellent. The prices were in line with other places in the area.
