The best selection and they use the best ingredients in the most creative combinations. They encourage you to sample before you buy and let you combine several flavors in a single cup.

Good variety of gelato from fruity to salty. The server allowed me to mix two flavors in one medium cup. Three medium gelatos ran $17.50. There were chairs inside and outside if you want to eat at the shop.

They are all good but Marscapone Pistachio Caramel is one of my favorites. Just stopped by and had a treat and met up with a friend having one of his two daily cups of Wicked Joe's coffee.

After a sad experience at another renowned Ice Cream vendor yesterday this was a terrifically positive ice cream experience. We both loved the Pumpkin pie ice cream for it's pumpkin pie flavor and ginger filled creamyness. I had the Madagascar Vanilla and Cinnamon as well and she had Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel and Baileys Ice Cream. If we lived... More

This establishment is almost always a busy, happening place, and with good reason. Right in the heart of Brunswick, Maine, there are always a multitude of delicious gelato flavors available. Tasters are encouraged, and two flavors can be added even in the smallest dish. Fun people watching here, as customers are range from babies to elders.

When Gelato Fiasco first came to Brunswick, I didn't go there because I didn't think I'd like whatever it was, and I had a favorite ice cream stand at the top of Maine St. One day, my cousin dragged me to Gelato Fiasco, while he got a raspberry gelato cone. I reluctantly tried a small bite of his gelato, and... More

This place is the best. So many flavors to choose from here, and they change them up daily. I've never been disappointed. Everyone needs to try this place. Seriously.

You can taste-test any of the flavors - and there are more than 20. The treat-size or small is ample, as you take little bites and savor. Friendly service, great coffee and fun seating to choose from. Comfy couch, armchairs or table and dining chairs. Busy!

This place is PERFECT! Sooo many delicious flavors. Among which is the best salted caramel I have ever had. And please have your icecream in a waffle cone, those are not to be missed!
