Savory gelato? Holiday gelato? The most strawberry-tasting and mango tasting gelato in the world? Go to any of their stores. Still, not much else there besides cookies, biscotti, bottled water and gelato. They choose to do one thing VERY well.

I love that they were able to get 4 flavors into a small bowl. The vegan chocolate was a nice surprise. It was good gelato, not the best because it was a little too sweet, but certainly yummy this side of Italia.

Amazing gelato in the center of old port! Dark chocolate sea salt caramel, blood orange sorbet, cookie therapy and fireside chocolate are all recommended. Medium size is a great value

If I’m dining on Maine Street in Brunswick I will always save room for a stroll to this place for dessert. I always taste something I’ve never had before.

Gelato fiasco has a wide variety of flavors with great texture. I recommend malt chocolate and dark chocolate. The texture of the ice cream made it one of the best I’ve had! Make a stop when you’re in Portland
