Nestled in the historic Old Port district just a block from Casco Bay, we’ve planted our gelato spoon in Maine’s biggest little city. Boutique shopping, fantastic restaurants, and bars of varying degrees of respectability are all steps away. Our team scoops up to 30 fresh flavors of ice cream daily. Named Portland’s Best Ice-Cream Parlor by readers of the Portland Phoenix (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) and Maine’s Best Ice Cream by readers of Down East (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2018).
UPDATE: Our store is temporarily closed beginning March 1, 2021, for major building construction and will re-open in the fall. Visit our new Gelato Truck on the Eastern Prom most days this summer, weather permitting. It offers up to 16 classic flavors and 4 features in dishes, cones, and Create-a-Pints. Check @gelatofiascotruck on Instagram for daily schedule updates.
