The Gelato cannot be beat. You can combine tastes with sweet and savory or two different sweets. The seating is very informal but comfortable.

It must be good, because by the time we went at night they were very low on some flavors. Our tour guide at Bowdoin told us they give a discount if the temperature is below freezing. They had some amazing selections. The gelato was smooth, creamy and delicious.

Always a treat. Fabulous gelato and friendly staff. We frequent Gelato Fiasco several times a year and are never disappointed...unless they don't have sea salt caramel!

Not a big gelato fan but my husband wanted dessert. WOW...the varieties of gelato here are amazing. The gelato is so eye appealing that it makes you want to try them all! I had the last serving of Key Lime Pie; an obvious sign of its popularity. The chunky brownie and Carmel sea salt were awesome too. We got small's,... More

What I like about Gelato Fiasco, aside from the many tasty gelato varieties, is that you can sample guilt free. The staff is all too happy to scoop out free taste after free taste so you can pick the flavor that tickles your taste buds. It's a bit pricey, but that is customary of gelato. Stop in if you're in... More

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.
