Caffe Gelato is conveniently located on Main Street and steps to the Univ of Delaware campus. The food is ok and service ok -- but dinner prices is a bit high and doesn't seem to be worth the cost.

This was our first time visiting. We went with some friends who are regulars. We all go pasta related dishes. Excellent variety and quality. Wide ranging wine list with good value.
