Yummy Gelato! I haven't been to Italy or had gelato from many places, but this is the best that I've had. We walked in, and the guy behind the counter was just handing us sample after sample. We decided on the peach (with actual bits of peach), red watermelon (tastes just like watermelon!) and fig (which was creamy and just... More

A ten! Rich, deep flavors. Very creamy - creamier than ice cream. Slightly sweet and not overloaded with sugar. Amazing, simple flavors: banana, papaya, chocolate peanut butter, roasted pecan, sweet Amish milk, salted cream. A must try. Some of the best gelato I've ever had. A small is $5.50 (two flavors) and worth every penny.

We always take time to visit CG when in Philly, since it is one of our favorite gelaterias, and that includes multiple visits to Italy. Intense and pure flavors. Particular favorites: cioccolato scuro and Sicilian pistachio.

Excellent pizza and good services. After eating we got several scoops of Gelato. We went back another evening for Gelato and the employee was always helpful with tastings and helping us make a decision.

FABULOUS flavors and the gelato was better than what we got in Italy. We were down near City Hall and made it there several times. Just for a cool scoop and after dinner at one of the several dining areas. It may appear to be pricey but it is worth every penny.

Went here with friends after dinner. Great gelato and the selecctions were quite good. problems were not places to sit and the prices were a tad high, although not outrageous.

Capogiro Gelateria offers a truly impressive array of gelato flavors in any size you like, and while you will pay full price, the quality of the gelato is simply superb, so worth it. This gelateria appears to do a brisk business yet it didn't feel overcrowded. The setting is pleasant, and if you have the opportunity to walk to Rittenhouse... More

Tastes like you're eating the fruit that was used to make the gelato. I come here every time I go to Philadelphia.

This was that one moment when I had a dairy free icecream and didnt long (even if only deep deep down inside) for regular icecream, I didnt have any regrets for as long as I was eating their exceptional Strawberry sorbet. Yum. Need I say more? Its heaven in a tiny, perfectly sized cup.
