So glad we found this shop. The staff is friendly and helpful. The gelato is delicious, especially the chocolate red raspberry jam.

Gelato Fiasco is the best of the best! Rich, creamy, smooth and delicious. Made onsite daily with regular flavors and some fun and inventive ones, even the divisive Moxie flavor. Better than the gelato itself is the staff. Personable and engaging. We were there when it was super busy on Saturday and again this past Sunday night when we were... More

If you are dieting, this may be a fiasco. But if you love gelato of a wide variety of flavors or sorbettos with unlimited flavors, this is the place for you. The varieties really make if difficult to choose, so you just have to return to sample more flavors!

Did the secret to sorbetto class. Very informative and with 6 in the class easy to hear. Made some really yummy flavors. Interesting to find out how simple and easy it is to make.

The gelato was great! The staff was very friendly. A group of about 20 students on a tour walked in while we enjoyed our gelato. The staff did a great job handing out sample spoons, getting their orders, and moving them along. I was impressed.

Gelato Fiasco has become our favorite Gelato place; we were fortunate to be walking by and noticed the crowd in this establishment and ventured in. Even though it was crowded the staff were congenial and patient permitting as many tastings as requested. The crowd is there for a reason - it is fantastic gelato!!!!! If you are in the area,...

Seriously can ice cream be bad? This place had many flavors making hard not to find something you will enjoy. You can mix as many flavors as you want in to your order. The gelato is very creamy and flavorful leaving you wanting more every time

Not quite gelato as you get it in Italy - but still very good; and we liked the opportunity to taste several flavours before deciding on the ones we liked best.
