This is such a cute place, and a great first job for the local teenagers. I love siting in The garden with my dog eating ice cream.

You'll find delicious ice cream in an 1880 restored general store/post office. They make all the classic flavors -- plus unique, limited-run choices. The licorice is amazing. If you can't make up your mind, order the "flight" -- your custom combo of any four flavors. The limoncello is possibly the best Italian ice around. Sundaes, milk shakes, chocolate bananas, decorated... More

If you want good homemade ice cream with friendly service, go here. This place is family owned and offers different flavors for every season with some of the staples all year round. It's great....just go.

My kids are always excited to come here! The ice cream is homemade and fresh. Flavors rotate often and they always have at least one sorbet available in addition to all the ice cream flavors. Some of our favorites are carrot cake, red velvet, peach blueberry ice cream and smoked peach sorbet. Flavors are rich and creamy. The store itself... More

We will go back soon. The ice cream is so good. I tried the spicy hot chocolate ice cream and the heat catches up with you, ingredients like jalapeno, poblano pepper and cayenne pepper are some of the ingredients. Test it before trying it. I also had a scoop of the Green Tea Matcha ice cream, excellent. My husband like... More

Super-rich, super-delicious this ice cream parlor has been recognized on local, state, and national levels, as the décor inside will attribute to. It is well deserved as their ice cream is flavorful, rich, creamy and they use fresh ingredients. You can taste the difference. They were very busy when we went and there are limited seats inside. On a warmer... More

If you LOVE ice cream that tastes fresh, creamy and you want a variety of unique flavors (along with the traditional), then get yourself, your family, and your friends to Capannari's in Mt. Prospect!! So many favorite flavors, it is hard to recommend one...you will not be disappointed!

By far the best Ice Cream in America. It is a tremendous scoop of ice cream served in a charming location. Lot's of excitement and community as there is always something going on at Caps or you will run across an old friend. The ice cream is delicious and so fresh - best Ice Cream experience.
