From the minute we walked in the staff was welcoming and willing to help us in any way. None of us had been to the Fiasco before but had heard very good things so our expectations were high. And they were far exceeded!!

The staff offered suggestions on fun ways to mix and match the various flavors of Gelato. And samples were offered over and over again! These people really enjoy their jobs and it shows.

All of us decided we would go back soon and keep going back until we tried every single flavor! So many flavors too! Go and have fun - we did!

This place has a great selection of different flavors! The staff was very friendly and you can sample every flavor if you want (we did not). You can also mix different flavors in the size you get. I had the brownie batter and chocolate noir. My wife got the pineapple cheesecake and hazelnut. They were all excellent and rich in flavor! We would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for some great gelato!

Simply stated, this is the best gelato ever. The flavors are fresh and amount to a taste sensation. You won't regret going. The staff are always kind and patient (there are a lot of flavors to sort through) and the atmosphere is welcoming.

So many choices, so little time - this place is around the corner from my office and makes for a sweet mid-afternoon treat! Red Spoon Club lets you earn points for dollars spent and points can be redeemed for free treats. Love their unusual choices - go out on a limb, some of the craziest sounding ones have turned out to be my favorites!
