Good gelato

The gelato was good, but what I found more interesting was the abundance of different flavors. Having been to Hawaii, I didn't expect to find Lychee flavored anything in the mainland, but they had it. This, which is highly recommended, and more awaits you at this cold treat spot.

Yes, this Gelato is simply amazing. I have been to Sicily twice and the last time I went to Palermo and literally stayed right next door to the number one voted best Gelato in Palermo and guess what? This Gelato is just as good as the place in Palermo was. This is really delicious Gelato. If you love ice cream... More

The gelato was good. However, it wasn't the best I have ever had, but overall good. I might have been expecting more since this was rated as a number one in the whole state of Pennsylvania.

We heard this was the best gelato in the entire world as rated by National Geographic! So we searched it out and were blown away. Yes it tasted fabulous. But equally, it was so much fun! You can get tastes of all the flavor you might enjoy. Once narrowed down you order. My wife and I each got a triple!... More

Stopped here on a recommendation. Wow! I had the mango and Mojito. The mango was ok, but the Mojito was incredible, tasted like an icee Mojito. I'll be back before going home.

Creamy gelato with many unique and traditional flavors. Feeling chocolatey, regular, regular with caramel, or dark. Feeling adventurous, avacado, macadamia nut, or salt (vanilla base). All super delicious. The bargain is the pint ($11) when you compare to the piccolo ($5.13 for 1-2 flavors). If I lived here I'd be picking up pints regardless of the hefty price.

I am obsessed with Capogiro. When I'm in Philadelphia I try to visit at least once, but sometimes it's more like once a day! The dark chocolate is like a frozen version of the best chocolate bar ever, but other flavors are also well worth trying. This also is the only place that makes sorbets that I actually like. In...

There are a few of these throughout the city, with three of them being right off of Sansom, making it easy to remember where they are. Anyway, they have lots of great flavors of gelato, which are all very high quality, and they let you mix multiple flavors together. I would say their smallest size is probably more than enough...

I've searched long and hard for haselnuss gelato matching the quality available in Europe, and found it here. Enjoyed a nice small dish, two scoops. And it was perfect.

We love going here for gelato. They have a lot of flavors and let you taste flavors. Our last visit we both tried the dark chocolate- very rich and creamy. In addition we shared a hot chocolate- also very good. In addition they serve coffee drinks, breakfast and lunch.
