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!

They had a lot of nontraditional flavors along with some of the regular flavors. Really good, creamy ice cream. We went at 10pm and had to wait in line for about 5 minutes. It was ok because we need time to make up our minds!...More

Great place for dessert, love their Pistachio flavor, best part is that you don't even feel overstuffed after eating one of their cones after having dinner at a local restaurant. Helpful, courteous staff.
