Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What is there to say? I swear this gelato is the probably the best in the North West of Europe! You'll come to try the gelato, and return for the gelato AND for Fabio! He is a native of Florence but is now an adopted Sligonian. You'll always receive a warm and friendly welcome if he's in the shop that day. The selection of gelato is always varied, and always with a vegan option which is so appreciated. My favourite is the bulls blood - a warmly spiced, rich chocolate gelato that is also vegan. His staff are equally as nice to customers, and having worked in food/customer service myself for many years, I can say with confidence that is a reflection of a good working environment. I have a sweet tooth so I am always only ordering gelato here but he serves good coffee (as an Italian would of course - and his regulars will attest to this) and savoury foods for lunches. The Wine Street shop is a great spot for people watching, particularly as the council have now widened the footpaths, and the historic shopfront of Lyons Department Store across the way has been carefully and authentically restored. I wish I could visit here more often than I do, but I live in another city and my dentist is probably relieved. Its so important to support small, artisan businesses which are the lifeblood of our towns, villages and cities. Fabio's delivers on quality, taste, value and the pride of its proprietor and namesake.

Just got 3 ice creams, two regular and one small and was charged 13€, I think I was overcharged. I would not care about the price as the icecream was delicious and cannot say a bad thing about the icecream. However, for 13€ I would have expected a decent portion for two scoops in regular tub. The portion was tiny which I Am very disappointed in.

Hands down the BEST coffee and Gelato in Sligo! The only coffee shop in town I don’t need to ask for an extra shot of coffee- it is fantastic flavorful coffee 👌🏽 The ice cream is to die for and would happily eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner everyday! It doesn’t make me desperately thirsty after eating like most icecream! Great selection of flavors my fav being cherry and cream or white choc & pistachio! The staff are always very friendly too 😀

The tell of any gelato parlour is their vanilla! And Fabio’s nails it along with the multitude of flavours on offer! On a side note they started doing a slice of deep pan pizza which is actually super tasty! Being from sligo I might be biased but then I’m not wrong either

Delicious icecream. We were lucky enough to visit Rome last year and obviously enjoyed the top class icecream. Fabios would not be out of place there! Delicious icecream and would definitely recommend.

We had delicious icecream as part of the Sligo Vegan Food Tour here. A rich chocolate and orange, strawberry or raspberry and lime were on offer.

The Irish love their ice cream, so do the Italians. Here's where the cultures meet in the best possible way. All the treats are homemade and the flavours are magnificent. Do yourself a favour and get an Affogato, coffee with vanilla ice cream. Wow. Just wow.

We visited on a hot July day, we have been before, but not in a while....I don't know why we don't go more often. We ordered a medium cone with two scoops to share; we chose Eldeflower and Black Forest Pavlova. They were both delicious; lovely flavours and not too sweet. It's a tiny shop, but full of character. Highly recommend this place. It's a treat.

My wife, my sister in law and our baby daughter went to Sligo for the day to visit family and after a nice lunch and a walk around the town we visited Fabio's for ice cream, or should I say Gelato, as there is a big difference in how it's made and that comes through in the quality. It was excellent and the service from Marta was first class. They offer a range of different flavours of gelato and also sorbet and between the four of us I think we tried most of them. They also offer lots of gluten free products etc. and offer allergy advice on all their products. A must visit next time you are in Sligo. We will definitely be back.

Fabio has been open in Sligo for many years now and the quality of his service has never been anything less than stellar. I lived in Italy myself for nearly 5 years. I’m familiar with fabulous gelato and having it on my doorstep with Fabio offering up such amazing flavours is amazing. There is nothing on offer here you won’t be happy with. All of the gelato is hand made on site. Fabio offers dairy free sorbet also which is just as good as the gelato. The raspberry and lime sorbet is absolutely insane. Personally my favourites are anything hazelnut. Fabio also offers kinder bueno and Nutella gelato which is absolutely delicious. My children love the chocolate and the vanilla gelato. You won’t get a better tasting vanilla anywhere. I guarantee it. Haagen Dazs who? The cherries and cream is also delicious. Cream based gelato with whole sour cherries and sour cherry syrup marbled throughout. Simply delicious. Recently Fabio has a “lumberjack” flavour on offer which was a cream based gelato with maple gelato marbled through topped with caramelised walnuts. Again. Amazing. This man can do no wrong! And if you want a coffee? They have that too! Fair trade Italian coffee. Matter of fact put your gelato in your coffee and make it an affogato. Amazing!

Brilliant genuine gelato, all ingredients are natural and the ice cream is produced on site regualry. Have a great selection of fat and dairy free options as well as regular monthly specials. Fabio pioneers lots of new unusual flavours yet always succeeds!
