Staying with my friends in nearby Harpswell, The Gelato Fiasco was one of our first stops "in town". The Gelato was excellent and really the only downside of the experience is that you need to choose a flavor! Or I guess you could stay and eat them all and just never leave. The staff were very helpful in providing samples... More

I consider myself an ice cream/gelato snob. I am very picky about my gelato. This is gets an A++ - The chocolate brownie is what I had, it was a dessert inside of a dessert. So good!!!

My family loves a good surprise so I get mystery pints sometimes. They're so delicious!! Eating in is great fun too when friends and family are joining you. Gelato Flavors are more intense than most ice creams.

The gelato needs no mention: it is great. But the pour over coffee also deserves mention. This is the best place to get coffee on Maine St. in Brunswick.

Good but not great - service was friendly got to sample before we purchased. A little confusing the way we ordered & paid I thought - Kinda pricey.

So many choices, and you can mix as many flavours as you want into your cup size. Treat (the smallest) is plenty! Nice space, they even have games, friendly staff, lots of choices...make sure to join the loyalty club if you go often.

Sure, when I come here I try a little bit of everything, but the otherworldly bliss of their hazelnut and tiramisu are what keeps me wanting to come back again and again. They always have a great selection moving through so even in large groups everyone is happy, and with their policy of letting you taste everything before you choose... More

I really can't say enough about how delicious and fun this place is. They are always coming out with new and inspired flavors, often based on recent current events, holidays, changes of season, you name it. Half the fun is discovering the new scrumptious concoctions they have come up with. The shop welcoming with cozy couches and chairs for lounging... More

Great gelato with a very large selection of flavors. I particularly liked the cream soda flavor on my last visit.

Always good, but the seasonal one with bourbon was outstanding! Can't recommend them enough for that special treat!
