We agree with National Geographic's Food Journeys of a lifetime, that this is the #1 of the top 10 places in the world (!!!) for ice cream! (Am surmising we haven't been to the other nine...) There was a wide selection of gelato from which to choose... if you also need a caffeine boost, order the affogato (sp?), which is... More

I really enjoyed this street corner gelato store. They had a good selection to choose from including non-gelato items. They serve warm and cold beverages which compliment the gelato really well. The seating is slightly modern and isn't my favorite, but it does the job! The staff was nice and I would go back. The only issue I had was... More

Don't pass this place up. Forget about ordering dessert at your restaraunt and go here after dinner. Or go for breakfast. The gelato is over the top. It didn't matter that we went in coldest December to eat a frozen dessert. A must try!

I visited Capogiro's a couple of times previously before I decided to order their gelato. Firstly, it's extremely costly for the gourmet gelato they serve. The serving sizes are tiny, so there's no point in sharing. As far as the quality, I have to say that is extremely fresh, fragrant, and flavorful. My favorite combination so far is the Thai... More

Unique menu with great variety (for what you'll usually find in America, anyway), and a more-than tasty selection. Most likely going to have to search for street parking, but to us it was worth it. Definitely will go back on my next trip to Philly.

Really. In philadelphia. Best. I paired the vaniglia with a burnt sugar while my wife put mango on dark chocolate. Always pick the cinnamon and the salt if they are available.

Great gelato with a variety of flavors. A nice size place with adequate tables. I would go there again, especially if in the neighborhood.

I was hanging out with friends. So we thought of having something sweet... we went there it wasn't that much as we'vr expected especially me... it has a high ratio quantity and quality price... a small quantity...and the taste is less than good...

Best of Philly for sure. Many flavors of gelato. Smooth, creamy, authentic. Cannot comment on the rest of the menu as we have not tried anything other than gelato. A bit pricey for what you get!
