I will keep it simple. I have been to the number one TA-rated "restaurant" in Florence,Italy several years ago, which also was just a gelato establishment, and Gelato Fiasco in Brunswick, ME is equally outstanding. Besides an outstanding selection, the servers there are always courteous, and the portions generous.

Probably the best place of its kind I have ever had. Don't limit yourself to chocolate or coffee, which are great, try the fruit flavors. mango is my favorite, and the orange and berry flavors are amazing. Of course, you can try any of them.

There is no place that has better gelato than this! It is homemade and you can try any or all of them. It's just the best quality by far! You must try it.

If you're an ice cream lover then you absolutely have to try Gelato Fiasco. Actually, as their name indicates, they sell gelato -- not ice cream -- but you get the idea. I'd say gelato is creamier, smoother, silkier and better than ice cream -- and absolutely addictive!! They have 30+ flavors to try on any given day (selection changes... More

Amazingly selection, delicious flavors, and unbelievable service. No wonder this is #1 place in the area. I got Blueberry crumple, raspberry crumble and hazelnut chocolate.

Very expensive, large portions and absolutely delicious! We got a mint flavor and a kit kat, both in waffle cones. The waffle cones had a hint of cinnamon and were to die for. My one scoop was too big for me to finish. Expensive and worth every penny.

Oh man - you've got to go here! Any type of gelato you can imagine & all delicious. Fabulous! You may have to stand in line on a Saturday night because this place is popular with the hipsters and the college crowd - WORTH IT!

Go early! Several flavors were sold out when we went. Creamy and delicious AND you can get two flavors side by side. Coffee is also very good!
