I reviewed this joint a while back and decided that it was second fiddle to the competing gelato place across the street. No more. It's a toss up. The best thing to get is a waffle cone, homemade and super tasty along with a small any flavor. Small is big enough! Some flavors are too sweet so try first. Staff are very helpful.

Stopped here on a Sunday afternoon for a little treat. I'd heard of this shop and wanted to check it out. There are so many flavors to choose from, both gelato and sorbetto. For someone with dairy allergy issues, this is the place for a frozen dessert. We tried the dark chocolate orange sorbetto and it tasted just like orange cream candy. It was amazing! The raspberry cookie dough gelato was yummy, too. We will definitely stop here again.

So many flavors and so little time, but if you wanted to the staff would let you sample as many flavors and you would like. Sampling isn't necessary - I don't think there is a "bad" flavor in the place. I enjoyed the banana and the chocolate noire - like eating creamy cold fudge. A must for your bucket list.

My husband and I recently visited Portland. We had read about Gelato Fiasco so stopped in on a Saturday afternoon. It was busy but the staff was attentive and kept everyone happy offering taste testing of different flavors. My husband had never been to Maine so he went with the wild Maine blueberry and I got the peanut butter cup. Both were fantastic!

Great fresh fruit flavors - strawberry balsamic and several blueberry flavors. Everyone in the family wanted to go back again.
