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

Attended a wedding on Oct. 1 that was catered by Caffe Gelato; I am still craving the food; everything was incredible and the display was first class. Walking apps, lamb chops, lobster spoons, crab balls so many I can't name them all. The buffet was incredible.. Great Job!!

To be fair, we were there on a very busy college parents weekend. We had a reservation which we definitely needed. They did not have their full menu for this weekend, which they didn't tell us when we made the reservation. The menu was quite limited and I'm not sure I would have chosen to eat here had I known....

My first visit to Cafe Gelato, with out of town friends, ended abruptly because of a fire in the kitchen. Fire department required us all to leave. My second visit was for an early dinner, party of four. The service, although very friendly, was unacceptably slow. My friend's scallops were delivered lukewarm to the table. When we sent them back,... More
