I have always enjoyed the food and the service here and this time was no exception. I was surprised, though, to find that the prices have risen to levels nearing a fine dining establishment for a restaurant that just isn't one. By that I mean main dish prices over $30 in an environment with trashcans visible in the bar area,... More

We made an Open Table reservation for 5pm. Our hostess cheerfully seated us in the requested half moon booth. Our waitress Megan was perky and provided great service. I had the Fruiti de Mare which was shrimp, clams, mussels & calamari over linguine pasta. It has a wonderful taste, was plentiful in portion and was hot when served. My dining... More

My first and only time to Caffe Gelato was on the day I picked up my son from the University of DE for Thanksgiving Break, so it was quick because he just wanted to get home. Although it was a quick visit, the decor was very inviting and the staff very friendly. We went there specifically for their genuine Italine... More

It's nice that they mail $20 entree postcards out for your birthday--we try to take advantage of that and enjoy new dishes.

Good and friendly service. Warm ambiance with lots of candles. Nice touch with complementary focaccia and garlic oil. Scallops with rice and mushrooms were OK. The rice was not great, but the combined favors were good. Others choose salads (good) and ravioli (too much sauce). Decent selection of wines by the glass (Valpolicella is good). Desserts are very good. I... More

The restaurant is pleasant and the food is generally good. Unfortunately Italian restaurants in the States are convinced that Italians use cream in all their pasta sauces. This is not true. I had capellini with shrimps, etc a plate well presented and well cooked ....with much less cream it would have been perfect. The antipasto was definitely not properly assorted.... More

I went here with some business associates and had a very nice meal. The atmosphere is sort of understated elegance. The wait staff was very attentive. The bread and oil before the meal was very nice. The food was very good. I had the salmon pasta which was very tasty and a lot of food. We tried some gelato and... More

I went to Caffe Gelato for a business meeting and had the ravioli special of the day and I must say that it was great. I failed to notice that it had mushrooms in it which was my own fault because I was in between ordering that or the shrimp and crab capellini entree, but I will have to try... More
