Capogiro was recommended to me by some Philly locals, and it was really yummy. I got the Baccio (which tastes just like a Ferrero Rocher) and the ginger. I also tasted the salted caramel and it was very good also. All flavors are made in house and they tasted fresh.

If you are non-dairy, you are not a second class citizen here. The non-dairy gelatos are incredible. Could have eaten here every night of a weeklong visit. The only disappointment was that they rotate flavors so I could not repeat my favorites. Staff are somewhat surly and they do not believe in "lines" so you have to wait for a... More

Honeysuckle, Salt, Blood Orange... Are examples of some of the unique and delicious flavors you might find on a summer evening here. It's hard to choose just one... Which they fortunately recognize so, you can choose up to 3 flavors for your order. SUPER YUMMY!!!!

Very tasty gelato at exorbitant prices. They have a wide variety of flavors, including thai coconut milk, goat cheese, and avocado. They also have more traditional flavors like banana, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and an assortment of seasonal fruits. Service was super slow as they allowed the group ahead of us to try just about every flavor. It was nice that... More

Really good ice cream! However I feel it's a bit on the expensive side - $5ish for a small cup of 2 scoops. But it's a very nice chilled place with seating space, good for a post-dinner chill. Really like the peach flavored one, it's really unique!

I really enjoyed my visit to Capogiro. When I told the server it was my first time visiting, she gave me some great recommendations (and samples) to try. After making my selection, I was amazed at the portion they consider "small" - definitely a great value for the money. The gelato was absolutely terrific - some of the best I've... More

We were sent here by a waiter at another restaurant. We have been there both nights that we are visiting Philly. Great flavors that seem to change daily, quick friendly service. Don't miss it.

The best Gelato place that I have visited between Philadelphia in DC. The Gelato is awesome! So creamy and the flavors are great! My absolute fave is Tiramisu. However, I have tried several others including creme brulee, vanilla, chocolate chip, hazelnut, peach and so many more. I love this spot and it's the perfect stop on a hot, sunny day!... More
