Scary flavors for Halloween
Capogiro Gelato has introduced Halloween-themed gelato and sorbetto flavors at all locations including Capofitto Gelateria and Pizzeria in Old City. “We like to change our flavor selection seasonally,” said owner Stephanie Reitano. “We pride ourselves in handcrafting flavors not seen anywhere else, and the new seasonal Halloween flavors are no different.”
Halloween gelato flavors include Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin, made with Lancaster County Long Neck Pumpkin, SIN-ammon, Mummy Mascarpone with Shrunken Head Apple, a rich imported mascarpone cheese taste with seasonal Lancaster County apples. Halloween sorbetto flavors include Pagan Pear with Bourbon, Black as Your Heart, which has a lemon charcoal flavor, Alien Eyeball, which is like Capo’s regular Kiwi Sorbetto with a more Halloween-y name.

Local Zucchini Salad with fiore sardo cheese and pistacchios with a lemon vinaigrette
Capofitto Pizzeria + Gelateria will be hosting late night pizza “happy hours” on Mondays and Tuesdays this summer.
Dubbed the Pizzata (which is Italian slang for pizza party), you can swing by Capofitto from 8 to 10 p.m. and get pizza for just $10. The two flavors included in this deal are Marinara and Margherita pizzas.
Even if you can’t make it to happy hour, Capofitto is bringing in a slew of new specials for the summer.
New caprese and zucchini salads will be available. As well as panelle fritte, which is a chickpea fritter, and a summer bolognese of slow cooked local pork, white wine, fragrant herbs and fresh paccheri.
You can also officially have cheese for every meal with a dessert cheese plate.
