Join their mailing list and they'll send you a coupon flier for your birthday! The wine is also good. It's a great place for date night or couples date night. Check their website for special events as wel!

I have stayed away from Caffe Gelato for the last two years because of the service. My wife and I have frequented this establishment regularly for years and we find the food very good. The problem has always been service, either you are ignored coming in for a table, or once you are seated, you are ignored from being waited... More

We have been to Caffe Gelato numerous times and it's usually very good. They blew it tonight. It was crowded with a "painting" dinner that had the place packed by the time we left. But, we arrived at 5:30 before the painting craziness started. Neither the kitchen nor the wait staff could keep up. There were mistakes on our orders,... More

Here is a restaurant that offers discounts on Italian food that is way overpriced. Servers her act like they are better than the paying customers while they serve you about 1/2 a dinner for twice the price.

The one time I ate in here we waited over 30 minutes for our food. Hard to keep a 2 year-old occupied all that time. When it eventually arrived the food was really tasty, and the gelato is very good. However, price was high. A better deal is to order a take-out, where for $25 you get a main course,... More

Our family recently dined at this restaurant celebrating a special occasion. The food for the brunch so disappointing. The omelets were dried out and not a big fluffy omelet that you would expect. How hard is it to make a decent omelet? All the food came out cold with little imagination. The Gelato included with the meal was embarrassingly small... More

Went for a birthday. Enjoyable! Very pleasant atmosphere, nice bar area, cozy booths for two people. Food was delicious. Great menu. Nice beer and wine selection. Service was great. Waitress was pleasant. The hostess was very friendly. Both made excellent suggestions. Very enjoyable night. Will return.

I was in Newark for a 5 K and ate dinner at this place on Main Street. It is a street filled with restaurant choices but we could not have possibly picked a better place. It is NOT a Gelato only place though you can walk in and get good coffee and best anywhere Gelato you do not have to... More

It was a wonderful evening. Our server Ryan was attentive, knew the wine choices and the menu. The food was delicious - I had the small rack of lamb and was cooked perfectly. My husband had a seafood dish of shrimp. Clams . Mussels. In linguini. Delicious. We each had a gelato - Baileys Irish cream and creme brulee !... More
