This is our favorite ice cream place! My favorite flavors are Black Raspberry Chip and Lemoncello. My daughter loves their Cookie Dough, Chocolate, and Chocolate Chip. She also loves running around their beautiful park with her friends once she finishes her treat. The family who owns Capannari's is also very involved in the community, which is awesome. Highly recommended!

This is the best ice cream in the United States. The staff is super friendly and lines move quickly. My favorite flavors are Rocky Road, Praline Pecan and Lemoncello. If you can't decide what to have, try a flight.

i am not a big fan of ice cream but this is Great! Heard about this ice cream place from a friend and had to give it a try. If you are not sure about your selection they have the " boat" which has 4 little scoops, and that's what I had. Finished that and went back in the shop... More

This is some of the best ice cream that I have ever had! I always look forward when summer time approaches and Capannari's opens for the season. The ice cream is fresh and delicious. I would recommend the chocolate and the coconut chip ice creams. They also have a rotating menu that changes with "flavors of the week".

The ice cream is made by the owner. There are usual flavors like chocolate and vanilla, but also different flavors like blueberry. The flavors change from day to day.

If there is such thing as a destination for ice cream than Capannaris is it. (Literally Joe Biden has come to town). Far and away the best ice cream in Chicago . I know nobody who has been disappointed .

My family loves this place. We are local but have relatives from all across the U.S. who insist on a trip to Cap's when they are in town. Set in a historic general store this place is oozing charm. Local teenagers scoop generous cones or cups. The ice cream is made on site and unbelievably delicious. There is not too... More

This business is housed in a building moved several blocks to preserve it and restored by the local high school trade class. It's got plenty of character alone, but add a local garden for small kids to run around in and you'll find plenty of fun for the whole family. The flavor offerings are, in a word, unique.

It was so creamy & not too sweet. The staff was friendly and efficient . We drove about 45 minutes to... More

Great local ice cream shop in a historic building. Lots of charm and best ice cream around. They have a long list of regular flavors and also a rotating list. Go there often so you don't miss some of the great, unique flavors. A few rotating favorites of mine are the ginger ice cream, red velvet and carrot cake. Cake... More
