Yup, this gelato is so yummy that I've been known to make a special trip in a snowstorm. They have fabulous seasonal flavors, an ever-changing selection, and are pretty darn nice, to boot! Don't worry if the place looks mobbed, you'll still get speedy service...More

The sorbeto here is the best selection and the best tasting I have ever had. Rather than 1 fruit flavor like at most ice cream places, there are usually at least 5 - 10 choices, from Dark chocolate Noir (my favorite), to pumpkin! As someone...More

If I could rub it on myself, I would. But that would not only be inappropriate, it would be wasteful. I prefer to lap up every delicious drop of this smooth and creamy goodness. Go easy!! A small is really all anyone needs. But go...More

If you like good gelato, you have to go to this place. There many flavors and samples are encouraged. I thinks we tried 10 or 11 flavors and the choice was still difficult. My favorite was the dark chocolate salted caramel. OMG! Rich and smooth.

This place was right down the street from our hotel. Their gelato is excellent with a wide assortment of flavors. Good service, clean environment. They let you sample the flavors. Portions are decent, but a bit pricey.

Nice place, clean and friendly. The gelato is good, but not spectacular. Had we not experienced the one across the street, we would have had a better review. I liked it, and if it was the only choice in town, I would be happy. Vibe...More

Two gelato stores right across each other but Gelato Fiasco has a modern and vibrant vibe. There's a lot of people, it may seem chaotic and crazy but don't be intimidated. Just walk up to the counter and take your time checking out the flavors,...More

There are two gelaterias across the street from one another. Tossed a coin and chose this one. So glad I did. It's called fiasco because they have non-traditional flavors. Well sign me up for modern! You can get as many flavors as you want in...More

Gelato Fiasco started in Brunswick. After many successful years, the owners opened another shop in Portland. It has been a hit since. The flavors are varied to suit the season. For instance, our recent treat was Wild Maine Blueberry gelato, worth a trip in itself,...More
