A fanI have been to cafe Gelato a number of times. Always a positive experience.

The menu has lots of varied options; the eggs benedict I had was wonderful. The room is appealing, the staff friendly, and service spot on. We ordered Mimosas, which came with ice in the glass, a little strange, but the waiter corrected it without hesitation.
Of course, the ice cream finish, was a wonderful way to end the meal. All in all, we highly recommend this gem on the main street of U Del's campus. I think you will agree.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!In summation: food was great, service was great, gluten free accommodations and knowledge was great.

We had a reservation -- we were seated immediately. Food was very good. My filet was surprisingly large, as was my wife's salmon portion. Wine pour was generous. All in all, a delightful meal.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy going to CaffeWe always enjoy going to Caffe Gelato. The food is always good and the selection is more unique than the usual fare found in Newark. The staff is polite and pays attention without being over-attentive. It is a great place for a casual lunch or a fancy dinner. We give it a big thumbs up.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnita, Newark DEAs always, the food was excellent and the menu was varied. My favorite, Little-Neck Clams, was prepared differently this time - but still a wonderful appetizer. Wait staff was attentive and refilled water glasses without being asked -- not something I run across very often.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here last Sunday forI went here last Sunday for brunch with my boyfriend on his mom's recommendation. We were so happy we went and cannot wait to go back. All the menu options looked delicious it was difficult to settle on just one. I went with the Paella and he opted for the crab and asparagus omelette along with a Bloody Mary. We were completely satisfied with our food. All the brunch items also come with an optional "Fun-dae" (vanilla gelato + berries + granola) for free at the end of the meal. It was a great touch! The environment was quiet and relaxed but also extremely chic. I noticed the bar area had been reserved for a bridal shower, which makes me think it could be great for a larger party there. If you love brunch, Caffe Gelato is worth visiting!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI used the birthday couponI used the birthday coupon and received $20 off my bill. Great gift from cafe gelato thanks for the special treat!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasion made even better!I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed our meal and experience at Caffe Gelato. I have been few other places where the staff were as attentive and kind. I had mentioned on our reservation that it was our wedding anniversary. Each person that we saw or spoke with made sure to tell us happy anniversary.
On top of all of this, the food was very good. My husband ordered the veal chop and I had the filet mingon - both regular menu items. My steak was cooked to perfection, and the truffled whipped potatoes were creamy, smooth and flavorful.
We will definitely be coming back soon, and recommending this place to everyone we know.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat to dine atAlways a treat to dine at my favorite restaurant!!!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThey have such a diverse menuThey have such a diverse menu it's hard to narrow down the choices. I wanted 1 of everything!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily-Friendly Easter BrunchOur first-ever visit to Caffe Gelato was for Easter brunch with my husband, 3-year old and 9-year old daughters. LOVE from a family standpoint that there was a separate kids menu and that any brunch item could be made "kid-sized." So my older daughter was able to have pizza with a side salad while my little one had pint-sized french toast with bacon. Our server could not have been nicer to the kids and Mom loved her mimosa. Since moving to Hockessin a couple of years ago, we have been meaning to get down to Newark to try out this neighborhood gem and we are glad we did. No overpriced special Easter menu, just the regular brunch menu with lots of specials. A great value!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMCaffe Gelato is quickly becomingCaffe Gelato is quickly becoming a favorite for our family. I love the creative specials that bring something new each time we visit. I also love the birthday coupons and wish other restaurants would follow suit. On our last visit, it was a bit noisier and more crowded than usual because of the Wine & Dine Festival, but we still enjoyed our dinner and the service was impeccable. We had one of the best brunches we've ever had a few weeks ago, so we know we will be back for that. I had to physically hold my husband back from hijacking my stuffed french toast!
Our only (very minor) complaint was the Irish Creme coffee my husband had after the meal. It was mediocre. But overall, excellent dining that will keep us coming back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReturn to Cafe GelatoThis visit to Cafe Gelato was particularly enjoyable. It was Wine and Dine night in downtown Newark,and they reserved the entire outside seating area for the wine samples as well as some of the bar area. This made it more noisy than usual but it was rather short-lived and did not disturb us much.
An Artic char on the menu was phenomenal,they offered our table samples as an appetizer to taste. Our proverbial favorite, the shrimp and crab linguini dish was excellent, with loads of flavor and low in sodium, as requested. I also ordered the pinot noir flight of wines, all were incredible, with one being superb. All in all, it was a great experience, more so than usual.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time, the serverWe had a great time, the server was friendly and offered suggestions. The wine list was pretty good and the food was great! There were 4 of us abd we all had a great meal!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. Only commentFood was excellent. Only comment is that the night we were there was a "buy one, get one free" night. Had to specifically ask for that vs having the server automatically take that into account. An acquaintance was tree the same evening and did not know that, so did not get the discount. Made her experience not pleasant after the fact and makes me wonder about the restaurants integrity.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always go to Caffe GelatoWe always go to Caffe Gelato for dinner.

The servers were very attentive and accommodating and the food was just amazing!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe regularly dine here forWe regularly dine here for both lunch and dinner. The food is always excellent, the waitstaff pleasant and accommodating and the owner visible. During this outing, our pork tenderloin panini was fresh, tasty and delicious. Anna, the hostess and our server, did a great job honoring our reservation for a half-moon table and attending to our needs. Owner Ryan German stopped by the table and was advised what an excellent job he is doing with superior waitstaff selection. A nice perk for the wallet is the mailed coupon and special value e-mails which allow $avings.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIn the heart of Newark's UniversityIn the heart of Newark's University of Delaware, this is a hot spot and an excellent restaurant for brunch, lunch and dinner.
