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!

We went to Philly for a family vacation. We went to see all the usual sites and had nice casual dinners out. One evening after dinner we wanted to get some dessert. Stumbling upon Capogiro was the best thing ever. We went to the one on 117 S 20th St. right near Rittenhouse Square (they have a few locations in... More

Highly rated by the food rags and receiving raves both here and abroad by critics. Yes it is very good Gelato, not the best I have ever had, but very good. As it has been a bit overrated it is also overpriced. Worth a stop for as good a Gelato as one will find in Philadelphia.

I love to come here whenever I am in the area. The choices of gelato flavors are fantastic and it is always a difficult decision to make, because all the varieties are so very excellent. Cool, smooth, rich and creamy, it's always a delight to come here with friends or alone!

I live three blocks away from one of the three Capogiro Gelaterias which calls for a great deal of restraint. Whether it the gelato especially the bittersweet chocolate or any one of their other"to die for" sorbets, Capogiro is the place to go. Usually get a pint and indulge at home. One bit and you will think you're in Europe.... More

A friend of ours had told us that this place was voted best gelato in the world by national geographic on 2011. So we had to go. It was very good, but I have had slightly better gelato in Australia. I would definitely come back again though. I love their dairy free options. The girls working were so nice! They... More

Unique flavors and great quality. We are regulars and love finding new flavors everytime we visit. Almost like being in Italy.

Capogiro has a wide variety of flavors, mostly tasty. I came with my sisters last summer, and we were excited to try the "No.1 gelato in the world." Whoever was working that day seemed annoyed when we asked for samples, although we only asked for 2! In the end, we tried the avocado, lime, dark chocolate, and tiramisu. They had... More

A good variety of interesting flavors. While this gelato is very flavorful, it seemed to fall somewhat short of greatness in texture and creaminess. Still, it is a tasty treat.
