Gelato Fiasco has literally tons of different, interesting and delicious flavors of gelato and sorbetto going on--they also have wonderful pour-over coffee available and a great seating arrangement inside with either easy chairs and side tables or little tables and chairs. One can also sit outside on their patio and watch the Old Port foot traffic flow by in the warmer months of the year.

It's easy to see why it was just voted the best dessert place and best ice cream in Portland. Everything we sampled was amazing but our favorites were the Brownie Batter (chocolate batter flavor with big hunks of brownie mixed in) and the Sweet Resurgam (roasted almonds, burnt sugar, chocolate chips and caramel)
With 29 flavors made fresh daily - my only regret was not staying in Portland longer to try more flavors.

This is the closest thing to the gelato that my husband and I had in Italy. You can sample as many flavors as you like and there is also no limit to the number of flavors that you can put together in your cup. Every flavor that we tried was absolutely delicious!

I was here over the weekend, and the gelato tasted more like ice cream to my friends and I. Sure, there is a huge selection, but creativity sometimes compromises the intended product - authentic gelato. We now wish we went across the street.
