The migration of Italian families at different times during the last century so enriched my own city of Belfast. The fish and chips may have been hit and miss, but it was the wonderful ice cream (which they called 'milk ice') that so enraptured generations...More

Fabio's is always a must go. Fabulous ice cream flavours, great quality and loads of choice, even if your on a diet there is almost always a fat free option. Salted Caramel is divine! Well worth a stop, and if you don't feel like eating...More

Gorgeous traditional Italian gelato and Fabio is a really genial owner, and a proper Italian to boot. Try Fabio's Biccies when it's on the menu, super yum 🤗

It's such a nice feeling to be able to get a piece of Italy here, get that feeling of a true ice cream and a espresso. The gelato is very good quality and it varies, the special of the month is always a surprise. Frappucino...More

Sensational home made ice cream combined with a really italian coffee. Lovely service and feeling immediately at home. The next day we went for a piadina with spinach and it was one of the best piadina we ever tasted. Very clean and tidy.

Fabio sells coffee and hand made ice cream. Both are wonderful! You can also buy coffee pots and ground coffee or coffee beans and it makes better coffee that Ive tasted anywhere else in Ireland.
