Visited with my Mom and really enjoyed our gelato. They had a wide range of flavors and let you sample before committing. We shared a small with two flavors which was about $5 and we thought was plenty to share. The gelato was standard to other high quality gelato I have had and we purchased the nutella and cashew flavors... More

I am not so much an ice cream or gelato lover, but this gelato was enough to change that. There were flavors like Irish Potato, which tasted more like cinnamon role.

Capogiro has some interesting flavors. The mojito was among the best--very intense of lime and mint. Some of the other flavors were OK. My wife liked the dark chocolate and the hazelnut. They are very glad to let you sample as many flavors as you wish. Prices are a bit steep--$4.75 for a small.

This place came highly recommended by a few people. The gelato was delicious! The staff was very friendly! After I enjoyed my pistachio and stratella gelato, I had a great cup of rooibis tea. Try this place, it's great!

Because of all the great reviews our family decided to try the gelato. After tasting many different one's it was difficult to choose not because they were great, but because they were average. The prices for the gelato was quite high and yyou would expect quality. One of my children was so disappointed she went across the street to the... More

My husband and I shared a small two flavor cup of gelato. We had dark chocolate and chocolate peanut butter. The gelato was very creamy and flavorful. They have a large selection of gelato and sorbets to chose from. The staff are friendly and will let you sample flavors. In addition they serve food and coffee drinks.

Do not hesitate to try Capogiro! This is the best gelato around. I make a point to visit every time I am in the city. The dark chocolate, burnt sugar and sea salt are my personal favorites.

The pear gelato was to die for. I also sampled the apple, cactus flower, and rich chocolate, but they couldn't compare. My friend also quite liked her chocolate caramel. She had previously had the salt flavor and said it was terrible.

We don't live in the city but i'm hardly allowed within blocks of this place without my wife making me stop for her. Fresh gelato with an interesting twist.
