Capogiro Gelato Artisans, which offers daring flavors like a cilantro-and-lime mix.
Philadelphia Weekly
May 5th, 2004
At Capogiro, [gelato] appears in a variety of flavors no ice cream would dare approach. How about prune armagnac, full of prunes swollen with fine French brandy?

Or Mexican chocolate, powerfully flavored with canella (pungent Mexican cinnamon), bitter almonds and dried ancho chiles that make the back of the throat tingle.

The Reitanos' use La Colombe in a handful of their blends, and while the cappuccino is terrific, a combination of the banana and peanut butter gelato (made from peanuts roasted in-house) is unforgettable.

The highest level [of gelato making] - artisanal - is how John and Stephanie make Capogiro gelato.

That means daily, in small batches with top-notch ingredients, strictly adhering to the Italian notion of locality.

The flavors at Capogiro are a surprise, particularly for those accustomed to commercial ice cream.

The hickory nut gelato, though rich and buttery, tastes like a truer, cleaner, lighter butter pecan ice cream. Pumpkin gelato is rich and deep-flavored, with some spice and seemingly none of the fatty ingredients of your favorite pie.

It is the larger proportion of milk (rather than cream) that distinguishes gelato from regular ice cream.

So even with half the fat and calories, you end up with a creamier, richer, far more intense experience. It's a miracle. Like a kiss.

Every choice is perfect. Be adventurous and try the green tomato (yes!), avocado and rhubarb.

Then go back again for kiwi, coconut and mango topped with chili powder.

The Reitanos offer exquisitely executed versions of flavors you'd expect - chocolate, pistachio, vanilla. But they also offer fanciful tastes that surprise. From zingy lemon and purple basil sorbetto to olive oil gelato (it's a mouth-feel thing), there's always something unique to try.

I took advantage of the fact that Capogiro offers free samples and tried the Gianduia, a chocolate hazelnut gelato. It immediately melted in my mouth - pure chocolate and hazelnut, no ice crystals, no false aftertaste.

So why haven't I had ice cream like this before?

I scoop my Espresso Noir into a bowl. I dip my spoon expectantly. It is the quintessential-no, the Platonic ideal of-iced coffee, with flecks of ground beans and the hit of Whiskey. If I paired it with a little of the deep chocolate Scuro, it would be perfect film noir, a Chandler private eye in the company of a blonde in a black veil. To paraphrase: "She's dark and lovely and passionate. And very, very kind."

Summer Special, August, 2008
Short of flying to Italy, buying authentic gelato is quite the challenge. If you're craving a creamy confection, seek out Capogiro, a Philadelphia based gelataria run by an Italian native who stays true to the ice cream's tradition and methods. The store makes more than 250 flavors of gelati and sorbetti, all from fresh and seasonal ingredients, and will ship to your home.

"The owners’ commitment to this region is demonstrated by their support of the local, state and regional economies, including the use of fresh ingredients from fruit and dairy farmers in Lancaster County; plans to move to a larger manufacturing facility; and the opening of five additional retail locations over the next three years."
