Gelato and sorbetto made fresh daily in small batches. Sample as many gelato flavors as you wish and squeeze a bunch into any dish. Full coffee and espresso bar, too. Gelato Fiasco's flagship store.

Here's the scoop, straight from my spoon to you: the Gelato Fiasco is sweet perfection! The shop is neat and easy to navigate, and the staff members behind the counter are always friendly and helpful. It's not at all pretentious or snooty; in fact, one of the joys of the venue is watching gelato lovers of all ages point and speculate on the huge selection of flavors, often chatting with others to compare notes. It's incredibly pleasant and remarkably charming! As others have noted, you can taste as many flavors as you'd like before ordering; personally, I don't think it's necessary since every single flavor is delicious. You simply can't go wrong! The gelato is perfectly creamy and smooth, and the flavors and add-ins are all top-quality for superb tastes in every batch. The scoops are generous, and the brilliant use of tiny spoons forces you to savor every bite--a lovely throwback to older times when good food was adored, not devoured. I'm addicted to the Gelato Fiasco, and even though I was just there yesterday, I'm already dreaming about what tasty selection I'll sample next time I visit the shop!

Having never had gelato before, we didn't realize what an awesome treat we were in for. Upon enetering, one of the servers behind the counter immediately told us that we could sample as many different kinds of gelato as we wanted. Wow, that's great. No more of that wanting to try one, not knowing what it'll taste like, only to find out it isn't your favorite. Test them out and then order up the best - or mix up two, three or more of your favorites - they'll be many. The gelato was delicious - we all sampled out top three picks and then ordered combinations of them - too good to choose just one. In fact, so delcious, we signed up for their "flavors of the day" emails, joined their free red spoon club, and returned two days later for another round of creamy delciousness. And on our second visit, we sat at their tables and played games they provided for customers. Just an above par experience when going out for a sweet treat. So glad we found it!

Another great place to grab a treat in Brunswick! I love the HUGE variety of flavors as well as very casual seating. I like taste testing before I buy. Very flavorful and addictive. Great for people lactose intolerant! Join the Red Spoon club and gain rewards as well! The staff are always really knowledgeable and friendly as well. Thanks for the Fiasco!

Absolutely the best gelato (or ice cream) I've ever had. The restaurant itself is a joy to be in, the artwork on the walls is entertaining, and the gelato itself is presented beautifully and creatively, with incredible flavors. If you're in Portland, even though they deliver gelato to a few restaurants in town, it's still worth driving the extra 25 minutes to "the flagship store". And they make delicious Wicked Joe's coffee by the cup (my favorite is definitely the Wicked French).

Even better than the delicious gelato is the friendliness of the employees! Most helpful and most willing to give samples of the many flavors.
