Capogiro has a taste of Italy here in Philly... about as authentic as it gets. The quality of ingredients used to make their gelato is evident in every bite. They have many great flavors, some that change based on availability of fresh ingredients, but they...More

We went here for dessert after having dinner across the street. The staff was very friendly and offered us samples upon walking in. We tried the dark chocolate, peanut butter, and amaretto. We ended up getting a small, half dark chocolate and half amaretto. It...More

Excellent Gelato in central location. Between our kids and ourselves we must have had 9 different flavors - and everyone was excellent. Even ingredients that have a subtle flavor (like Macadamia Nut) were very flavorful and distinct. Prices are steep but the service is great...More

This place has the best gelato we have ever had. Huge variety of flavors that they are happy to let you sample until you narrow it down. The Saigon Cinnamon and Chocolate Malt are really good. Portions are small, but given the rich taste, more...More
