Locally sourced milk, fruit and other ingredients, interesting flavors you can't find anywhere else, small batches to control quality, plus free tastes! This isn't Mr. Softee people. Taste it and you'll see. Yes, a small is almost $5 but it's worth every penny. You can't eat this everyday but it's great for an occasional treat. Have not tried all the flavors but the Chocolate Scuro is so intense you may need to sit down when you do. The cashew is my current fave but that will probably change the next time I go Buy a cup on a sunny day then go for a walk in Rittenhouse Square for a perfect Philly experience.

Capogiro is proof that all gelato is not created equal. Had a gelato in Venice recently and it couldn't compare to Capogiro. Great creative flavors. Small portions for the price, but you get what you pay for. you want big portions--go to DAIRY QUEEN!

yes it is expensive but so worth it. so happy that they opened a new addition on e passyunk ave in south philly where i now live. i used to live right next to the 13th st location (where they make all the gelato for the entire chain) and was able to enjoy teh gelato all the time it is very rich and a small will really do it for you def try the samples ahead of time best part is its very authentic

Yes it is expensive (the small is about 5 bucks-- but if you are short on cash the small cone is cheaper) but it is soooooo worth it. Not only are there a wide variety of flavors that change daily (you can free sample them all like baskin robbins) they are rich and you really only need a small or medium to be totally satisfied and that is coming from a big icecream lover. My faves-- dulce de leche, choc, straccitella, pecan, lemon the list goes on. The other great thing--for those that care, is that gelato is made with milk so it has half the fat of ice cream and the sorbetto is fat free, also capogiro uses organic, locally grown ingredients and horomone free milk-- so what you are paying for is the highest quality ingrediants.

I love gelato, and while Il Laborotorio Del Gelato is my favorite place to feed my addiction, I insist that I am not biased. I received two scoops-for a rather heavy price: one of tahini and one of sweet potato pecan praline. I loved the tahini; top notch. The latter, however, did not taste very much like sweet potato despite the lovely texture. There's a wide variety of wonderful-sounding flavors, but I'm reluctant to spend so much again.

Capogiro sells gelato from Philly to restaurants in NYC and Boston, so you know they're good. The flavor selection (I like lavender and olive oil) is the best outside of NYC's Laboritorio del Gelato. The bad part? You're paying for all the goodness. But it's so good.
