We went back the next night. Very busy place. They make great suggestions and give samples. Very pleasant employees. Seating indoors. The gelato is so delicious! Loved the Pistachio and my husband loved the Brownie Batter.

We are picky about gelato but recommend this. We particularly enjoyed the fruity flavors and the peanut butter.

My coworkers and I stumbled upon this gem right before closing-what a lucky occurrence! I'll keep this short and sweet. The lemon sorbetto was clearly churned by angels. It was perfection: sweet, tart, cold, smooth. One of the most satisfying deserts I've ever had.

Capogiro's gelato is excellent with the right consistency and flavors which change daily. Prices are within range. Staff is very friendly and efficient. Portions are generous and multiple flavors are available in all sizes.

This is absolutely one of the best gelatos the husband and I have ever had. The flavour options were plentiful, service was great and the portion was very much worth the value!! If you want world class gelato you need to try this!

I will admit that I am something of a gelato addict. My husband kindly calls me a connoisseur. Capogiro gets my vote for best gelato outside if Italy (the pistachio even reminds me of the fresh pistachios in Sicily) and beats many Italian favorites. I'm...More

We just wanted to try a different place than the usual. They had a lot of different flavors and they did sample them. I had 4 scoops which isn't as big as you would imagine. I got 4 different flavors and they were all good,...More
