I should start by saying that I usually enjoy this place. The menu is a nice blend of traditional items with fresh, modern touches, and the gelato is excellent. I go there about once a month with my mother for lunch, so it seemed logical...More

I had an opportunity to try Caffe Gelato's catered fare for 10 nights while working at a litigation support site in Wilmington. The food was for the most part consistently well prepared, from pasta to beef, scallops to salads, and of course, the gelato. Our...More
