“It was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I recently spent 3 weeks in Italy, France, and Spain. The gelato here is average. I love gelato and in the past month I had it in Florence, Rome, naples, Venice, Sicily, and Barcelona. Gelato there is much better. We stopped by Capogiro after eating dinner at Sampan.

“A Taste of Italy in Philly: Reminiscent of Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

This gelato is amazing. I have had probably the best gelato of my life in Rome, and this rivals that taste. The flavors are rich and deep. Those who find fault here are crazy, this is a class product.

As close as you get to Italy without leaving America.

They will let you taste and sample.
Two flavors, the piccollo, a small, is five bucks, worth every penny.

“Best ice cream in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

I have high standards regarding ice cream. I'm from Europe and have been to Italy several times. American ice cream is mostly rather boring. Not so Capogiro: the taste and texture is phenomenal!
prices are relatively high, but definitely worth it.
if your indecisive, the staff lets you try everything untill you found your flavour.
I can highly recommend this place!

“Awesome gelato!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

I was amazed when I opened the door and saw just how many flavors they had. What's even better is that they were more than happy to let you try a many as you like. It was so hard to choose between fig, chocolate, peach, prune plum, pistachio, sweet milk, and a bunch others that I tried. Next time I'm in Philly I'll definitely be going back.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

A great place to stop to treat yourself. The flavors are great and the staff are helpful in giving you recommendations of gelato (and a little taste). I love their variety of different flavors. Avocado, Blood Orange, etc. Yummy!
