“Flavors galore”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Great little gelato shop. Lots of flavors to choose from spanning the spice/fruit/candy continuum. The "treat" size gelato should be plenty if all you want is a light refreshing post-meal dessert. Good service. Cute location.

“Simply delicious”
Reviewed February 11, 2011

I had read about Gelato Fiasco in Down East magazine and I was looking forward to being able to go to their flagship store in Brunswick and was not disappointed. The owner was quite patient as I eyed each flavor because it was too hard to make a choice and lucky for all of us we can sample anyone tha twe wish. Once you make your choice you are able to get a couple of flavors if you can't decide on one. Simply put, this gelato is outrageously delicious. It is a bit more than your usual pint but this is the opposite of usual and it is absolutely worth it. If you are there just take a look at all of the people around you especially when it is cold outside and that will tell you all you need to know!

“fantastico”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

As a discriminating gelato connoisseur who's lived in italy, i didn't expect much given the many "gelato" places that use powders & mixes as opposed to real ingredients. but this gelato is authentic and as good as i've had anywhere.

“A Local Gem, my mouth is watering as I write!”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

My sister lives in the area and this is a stop at least twice while I'm there. The staff has always been friendly and the price is fair for the size, ingredients and efforts put into product. The inside looks like a hip cafe but, you are immediately drawn into the case of colors and yummy gelato flavors. They let you try if your not sure and they happily mix more than one flavor in your cup or cone. I have tried many and have loved all!
