The Fiasco offers a wonderful variety of gelato and sorbet with amazing flavors - many of which represent the location and season (like "Peeps" for Easter or other local ingredients). The products offered far exceed expectations and are so much better than run of the mill ice cream. The flavors are full and rich and fun!

Servings are generous, but a bit costly. Given the location (the Old Port), however, prices are not unreasonable - especially for the quality of the product.

The staff will provide a taste of any flavor available on that day and are friendly and accommodating.

Whether at this location or the original spot in Brunswick, The Fiasco is definitely worth the trip! Yum!!!

This gelato place is a happenin' place! We got in just before a huge line started forming behind us! There are so many flavors to choose from and the guys behind the counter were super friendly and helpful. The decor is modern and sleek and just a fun place to hang out. There is outside seating as well which is great because of the huge crowds of the people coming in (it was just a tad chilly to sit outside when we visited!). If we ever visit Portland again, we will definitely be back!

I love that they are open late! It has been so nice to be able to go in with friends and enjoy tea or drinking chocolate or gelato after dinner & be able to hang out somewhere other then a bar. They have me as a customer for life!

I had never heard of Gelato Fiasco before visiting Portland, so I had to stop in and check it out. It was packed, and one taste told me why. This stuff is incredible. I wish I didn't live 5 hours away, but I will definitely be back next time I'm in Portland!
