My daughter and I happened upon the Gelato Fiasco. After looking over the offerings I settled on the Raspberry sorbetto and Brownie Gelato. We settled in to play with some of the many games offered to customers. An unequivocal thumbs up.

My daughter and I visited after the place was mentioned during an orientation session at Bowdoin college. The place is open year round, which is unusual for frozen treats in the winter. We struggled over our selection since there were so many flavors of freshly made gelato. The staff was patient in explaining all of the different flavors and offered... More

Our go to place for a frozen treat. The selection of flavors is the largest anywhere and plain ice cream pales in comparison. While not exactly cheap..... it's worth every penny!

I've been a regular customer here since they opened and can honestly say their continued fascinating combinations in the gelato's they create are unique! I love any of their fruit combo's and am also a big fan of their latte's and espresso's. A little bit goes a long way here - do not order a large unless you are prepared... More

I am not even an ice cream or gelato fan but this product...any flavor...is OUTSTANDING. The two owners really have this down. Better than any I have eaten in Italy. A must stop for tourists, locals everyone.

Staying with my friends in nearby Harpswell, The Gelato Fiasco was one of our first stops "in town". The Gelato was excellent and really the only downside of the experience is that you need to choose a flavor! Or I guess you could stay and eat them all and just never leave. The staff were very helpful in providing samples... More

I consider myself an ice cream/gelato snob. I am very picky about my gelato. This is gets an A++ - The chocolate brownie is what I had, it was a dessert inside of a dessert. So good!!!

My family loves a good surprise so I get mystery pints sometimes. They're so delicious!! Eating in is great fun too when friends and family are joining you. Gelato Flavors are more intense than most ice creams.

The gelato needs no mention: it is great. But the pour over coffee also deserves mention. This is the best place to get coffee on Maine St. in Brunswick.
