You've got to be dead not to like Capannari's!

Simply stated, they serve the best ice cream in the world and probably the entire universe. All homemade and with a wide variety of flavors, including some offbeat stuff that I would never even want to sample (like licorice, for example), but different strokes for different folks.

Really tasty, super rich, awesome ice cream..! Loved the creative flavors, very reasonable pricing, great staff. This family owned ice cream parlor is open 7 days a week 12p.m.-10p.m. however they close for the winter, so call ahead if it's cold.

Great ice cream, great place to treat yourself or your family on warm summer nights. Homemade ice cream at its finest.

They don't just do one flavor well. They do most of their flavors very well. No wonder that they win so many national awards and recognitions.

The perfect stop to satisfy any ice cream craving. Family owned, homemade ice cream, is rich and creamy. Top quality ingredients, natural flavors, ample portions. All the regular flavors and each week specialty flavors to tickle the taste buds. The servers are helpful and friendly. Free tastes.... Positively decadent! Oh yeah! Outside a small green space hosts local musicians on... More

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.

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.
