It boggles the mind how good this gelato is. It's impossibly creamy, served with pride, and comes in flavors that will make you wonder why you've never experienced them before. Burnt sugar? Prickly pear? Lime with cilantro? More please.
Under-the-radar gelato delivery option — smeared between a piece of split sugar-studded brioche. Ask for it!
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 came packaged in flimsy paper cartons. Turned out that all three flavors were awful - they were bland and tasted just like the paper cartons smelled. Yuk!! Do yourself a favor and if you want this product, buy it from one of the Capogiro stores. The product sold at Whole Foods is gross.
Best Gelato I've Had in US – 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!
The best in the city!! and maybe even anywhere on this coast – 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!
Not amazing, but worth a trip – 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.
Best Gelato in Philly! – 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!
Great gelato made with local, seasonal ingredients – 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.)
best gelato in the us – searched for gelato ever since i went to italy, and this is the closest...a true chocoholic i always get the dark chocolate...but they let you try every flavor if you want...always the freshest ingredients make it very seasonal & delicious...friendly service...the first summer we discovered it we ate 3 pints a week...yes it's that good
(right across from el vez...see our review there)
If only heaven was a frozen treat served with tiny spoons – 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.
they let you sample which ever flavors interests you which means you can't go wrong here. – 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.
Like no other – 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!
