Bought Capogiro at Whole Foods right before Thanksgiving. First time I saw it offered there, and I was very pleased to see this product available close to where I live. Bought three favors - Cappucino, Pistacio and Dark Chocolate. It

This had the best gelato in the US I've ever had, and I keep trying whether NY, PA, CA, etc. Make sure to get the Gelato and Breich!

While walking around Rittenhouse Square during the summer, my daughters and I stopped here for some gelatos - the best we ever had! It was very busy but the staff was courteous and friendly.

This is the best place to go on a hot summer evening. It is located in a prime area for shopping and dining. It has seating, and is nice to hang out and have a coffee and/or sandwich also. Delicious.

service is friendly and hip, and you get free samples. Heirloom apples with marscapone cheese. Rosemary goatsmilk. Coconut milk. kiwi. There is real liquor when they add wild turkey, or champagne, or cognac.

This place has the best gelato! Some of the flavors taste better than gelato in Italy. They havve so many flavors to choose from, everything from plain chocolate, to mocha, to strange flavors like goats milk and rosemary. A small gelato (1 or 2 flavors) costs about 4$. You will not regret going to Capogiros.

Amazing and creative. Every season brings in new flavors and new combinations to try out.
I love their variety of local and imported products, especially mixing it with liquor.
My absolute favorites are Cilantro/Lime, Mint/Pineapple, Mojito, Scurro chocolate and Grapefruit Campari.
All other flavors are still just as amazing. Not so sure about the avocado,, but hey everyone has their special needs.
My favorite Autumn combo is Acorn Squash and Chocolate/Ginger.
My only wish is that if they will charge such high prices, I wish they could offer a frequent dining card or some sort of specials now and then.
My wallet is hurting!

Pros: Creative and soo delcious!

Cons: Expensive, should offer something special for frequent customers

The gelati are good, but not the best I've ever had. If you're looking for a decent scoop, try this place out, but don't expect to be blown away.

Sooo good. This stuff will make you fat! The flavors are plentiful with so many seasonal choices. I had Tirimusu and choc-banana mixed. Yes, it is pircey at $4.50 for a small; but well worth it. Very nice for an occasional treat!

Pros: Gelato, Good service, free samples of flavors so you can try b/f you buy

Cons: Price

I am no gelato connoisseur, and actually, this might have been my first experience with gelato. I think $5 for a small cup is well worth the delicate and creamy adventure that awaits once you take the first spooful of this delicious gelato. They do some traditional flavors like stracciatella very well, but also try something different like the "lime with cilantro" or the "Rosemary Honey Goat's Milk". All of the ingredients are locally grown and in season, made fresh every morning. The flavors change every day, so each trip offers something new. (On a side note, their sandwiches are decent, but overpriced. I still need to try the basil, tomato, mozzarella.)

We have been here a few times now and evry time we take someone new who then becomes a die hard convert. My Cousin in law is now driving in regularly from Jersey just to get a small cup I have a feeling she wont be a size 4 very long.
The flavors are far from standard, thank god, Its the freshest stuff I have had in years. A wide range of italian standards pistacio, hazelnut....along side some modern gems cranberry-pear. bloodorange,
and some epicurian delights like the rosemary basil or lemongrass.
Pints to go are a great option but then how can you miss out on a cup coupled with a walk through Rittenhouse sq.?

The candy they sell is quaint, olde timey and of excellent quality especially the caramel marshmellos.

Pros: the best stuff on earth

Capigiro's is an excellent bonus to the neighborhood. I love variety and unique flavors. Once in a while i do come across some gelato that is a tad on the sweet side though, so i gave them a 9.5. Service is always very friendly and accomodating.

Pros: great variety of flavorful gelato's and think outside the box flavors.

Cons: none

You can't get flavors like this anywhere else in Philly....my personal favorite is the Mexican Chocolate...with a kick (chili pepper!)....you can ask for 2 different flavors in one cup...with ever changing flavors, the combinations are endless!

You won't find these flavors in your average freezer section! Capogiro serves amazing mixes of herbs and fruits in their creamiest incarnation: the gelato. Lemon basil and pineapple? Rosemary and goatmilk? Sure! And you'll be shocked at how good these are. However, if you prefer tamer flavors...their chocolate will knock your socks off too.

I guess it is not so bad if you feel like dishing out $6 for a small cup...seriously...it's that much to eat the gelato. I've been there a few times and you do walk out there with an empty wallet. Expect to hand over a 10 dollar bill for you and your date.

The one on 20th street is closer to my apartment, and I was excited when it opened. I've been in a few times. The gelato is good, but the people behind the counter leave you with a bad taste. They roll their eyes, rush you to make up your mind, and are generally unpleasant. They have major attitude. I'll stick with Scoop de Ville. The lines may be longer, but the people behind the counter are helpful and friendly.

I know that Capogiro has received rave reviews from everyone and all of the critics but haven eaten there at least five times I find their gelato unimpressive. While I have not tried any of the more unusual flavors, their chocolate and hazelnut varieties were only fair while the torrone was not worth trying again, especially when compared to the other places I've had gelato.

Hands down the best gelato I have ever, ever tasted. I've had my share of artisanal gelato in Italy and it doesn't even begin to touch the gleato at capogiro. I took a group of customers to Sotto Varelli for dinner and suggested that instead of dessert, we could just stop at Capogiro on the way back to the hotel. The quick thinking waitress told us that Sotto served Capogiro gelato so we stayed and had three scoops each at Sotto. The gelato was so good that we still stopped at capogiro on the way back and each had FOUR scoops more! THe nectarine, black berry, fig, and mascarpone flavors were outstanding!

Thank God for Capogiro Gelato. I have been there many times since they opened last year and adore not only that the gelato is authentic (will make you wonder how they do it) but also consistently fresh. AMAZING flavor variety. The gelateria is a destination in and of itself - you feel like you have been transported to a swanky, NY meets Rome cafe. Highly recommended.

This place is an absolute gem. The gelato is simply the best, although it is a little pricey, i.e. about $5 for a small cup. The flavors are seasonal and change frequently, so your fave may not always be available. The sandwiches are also quite good, esp. the bresaola and arrugula and the ham and cheese. I also appreciate the later hours (open til 11) for a late night treat.

Herbs and liqueurs sometimes find their way into this artisan, small-batch gelato and sorbetto, processed fresh every day with natural ingredients. Count on off-the-beaten-path flavors like lemon-opal basil sorbetto in the summer, and…
