The best Gelato
Had a nice birthday dinner at Cafe Gelato. We dined outside which was nice. The food was very good, a little on the pricier side but with my body coupon, it wasn't too bad. A nice wine selection and very good food will bring you back. I recommend dinning here as it will be an enjoyable meal. I really enjoy their diver caught scallops, always a treat. Don't leave without taking home their wonderful gelato.

Consistently a winner
I have eaten at Caffe Gelato many times and dinner Saturday night was wonderful as usual. Their innovative pairings of foods and accompaniments are always interesting and delicious. The evening specials are always favorites too. Highly recommend it as a diner's choice.

As Always, Fabulous!
Had an old favorite and something new to the menu -- both were excellent. Server was superb, amenable, and attentive. What a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday.

Enjoyable Summer Dinner
Caffe Gelato provided us with a very enjoyable summer dinner on a Saturday evening. Although parking is limited and the directions to the restaurant were confusing, once we arrived, it was a most pleasant experience. Excellent service and very good food. Moderately high prices. Would recommend.

Wonderful food always!
Great Northern Italian Cuisine. Never disappointed with food or service. Nice atmosphere as well.

I reserved this table a week or two in advance, and requested a romantic table since I would be taking my ladyfriend for a date night outing. I really was uncertain that my request would be read, and was genuinely surprised when we checked in with the Maitre' Dee, and she mentioned the request. We where also treated to a special treat from the chef, a nice grilled scallop. Our meals were very good, and service was also very good. Our request for a romantic location was heard, but unfortunately the restaurant size and layout did not lend itself to a quiet set aside area for couples, and the overall noise level and dining area ambiance was a bit louder and brighter than would be optimal for a truly lovely romantic experience.

candle in the wall make for a great ambience and some romantic. Make sure you save room for the gelato as it is the best thing they serve.

For a lovely meal in Newark,
For a lovely meal in Newark, Delaware, you couldn't pick a better place than Caffe Gelato. The food is delicious, the service impeccable, the staff incredibly welcoming and charming.

I enjoy Caffe Gelato's atmosphere and food. Its usually a treat for 20 somethings on a budget, so my friends and I use it for special occasions. The staff is incredibly friendly and the food is always wonderful. The space is small, so if the restaurant is packed it may be a little difficult to hear everyone, but the overall food, service and decor make the experience worth it. I highly recommend stopping by Caffe Gelato when you are in Newark.

Consistently Enjoyable :)
Went for my husband's birthday with the kids - we appreciated that our server was attentive to the kids needs as much as ours. Meal was delicious as usual - we will be back.

Nice dining date
It had been a few years since we had been to Caffe Gelato so we thought we'd go for a dinner date. The food was very good. We both had pasta dishes which were cooked perfectly. We skipped appetizers and desert to splurge on the martinis. We were seated next to the kitchen and could hear all of the conversations of the cook staff but the chef sent out complimentary mini crab cakes which we guessed were to make up for the noise. Overall a nice evening out.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
The atmosphere and the wait
The atmosphere and the wait staff are both very pleasant. The mussels appetizer and steamed clams appetizer were excellent. Rack of lamb and scallops were good dinner choices. Very good wine list. The front of the restaurant is a "gelato parlor" for walk-in cones and sundaes, etc. It is very casual. The dining area is a separate space and more upscale. We look forward to going back.

Lovely relaxed patio dining
Had a lovely relaxed birthday dinner on the patio for my husband. Food was excellent. Service could you some polish.
7/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Appetizers: mussels were plump
Appetizers: mussels were plump and tender, sauce was delish, the short rib flatbread worked the flavors together well. Dinner: Pasta al dente, veal tender with hearty sauce. Wine list always a winner. Peach cobbler with gelato worth the visit alone. Get coffee though not cappuccino .

A Wed out
Three of us dine out about once a week. We have different tastes. This restaurant offers an interesting variety of foods all done in special ways. The service was just right.

Another 5 star Evening
My husband and I faithfully look forward to Cafe Gelato. The menu varies, yet we have never had anything that was not creative and delicious. We save it as our special occasion restaurant due to the semi-private booths, quiet atmosphere and candle lighting. It provides a cozy ambiance for our anniversary and birthdays. Service impeccable as usual. Foods done with the freshest ingredients and eye appealing garnishes that are tasty as well as tasteful.. On this occasion my husband had the grilled pork with fruit topped with a dressing. The combination was a real treat in his words and the portion was large. I had the lamb with fettucini in a cream sauce and that too was delicious. Another night to look back on with pleasure.

Fantastic food and service
Went went to Caffe Gelato for our 5th anniversary and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The food and ambiance were excellent and the service was outstanding. I embarrassingly left my credit card after paying and the server called me immediately to let me know so that I could come back and retrieve it. We will definitely be going again next time we are in the area!

Location & convenience
Now that college is back in full swing, it's a great location to visit downtown Newark, complimentary parking and a vibrant atmosphere. The free birthday meal was a great way to introduce someone to the restaurant.

Consistently Excellent Dining
Cafe Gelato provides excellent and interesting meals consistently over the years. Quaint neighboorhood restaurant with a relaxing atmosphere. Special events are also wonderful.

Attractive wait staff
You will inevitably find a new a new batch of waitstaff, with good looks and build as the season changes and new school session starts. Thumbs up!

Best in Newark
We have eaten at cafe gelato for all thirteen years it's been around. It is the best food and wine around for any price. Ryan is a wonderful host.

Great Romantic Spot in Newark
We always come here for special occasions and they never disappoint! One of those great places that you can show up to for a casual or fancy event, great for lunch, extensive sunday brunch. Great gelato!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time dining at Caffe Gelato and it was a great experience. Our waiter, Colin, had a knack for pairing food and wine. He individually recommended wine that complimented both our appetizer and main course perfectly. The dishes were very creative and had unique flavor combinations - fresh, quality ingredients. The coffee and espresso were good too. They didn't rush us at all so, you could actually relax and enjoy your meal, reminiscent of dining in France.

Nice lunch at an outside table
Good lunch, friendly service and great gelato! Get on their mailing list for some nice marketing freebies on occasion.

Gem for Gelato and So Much More
We highly recommend Caffe Gelato having now been there several times. So much more convenient than going to Philly for a 4 star menu and experience.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Their bruschetta is brilliant -- easy to eat, wonderfully flavorful.
Great wine list. Uniquely so.
The specials menu mixes things up -- I can count on the regular menu, but am often tempted away by cleverly crafted specials.

Great dinner out
The menu at Caffe Gelato is very different. They offer creative dishes with delicious sauces. I had a 10 oz veal chop wrapped in pancetta with caramelized onions. Absolutely delicious! They have fresh home-made pasta dishes, many seafood dishes, and usually one or two beef and chicken dishes. All dishes have fancy sauces, so I don't recommend this restaurant for people with plain meat and potatoes-type taste. Prices are a little on the higher end, but worth it. They also have a great variety of gelato favors for dine-in dessert or carry-out. I have dined at Caffe Gelato many times and always enjoy my meal. Highly recommend it.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent. We loved the home made pasta dishes. Leave room for the gelato...the 4 mini scoop sampler was great.

Just Good At Everything
My wife coined the phrase - "They are just good at everything" That made me feel good that I made the reservation at the right place. She & I eat out a lot and for me to get out of our Firebirds groove is hard. BUT, Caffe Gelato was perfect! The food was excellent & the service was spot on. Thanks CG her Birth Day Dinner went well!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the shrimp and crab
I had the shrimp and crab pasta. It was too salty. I have had dinner at Cafe Gelato a number of times, with the same dishes. Sometimes they are excellent and at other times too salty.
My wife had the stuffed noodles with lobster, and it was excellent. Not salty.
Saturday, the shrimp and crab pasta, which I was looking forward to, was too salty. Cut the salt and allow the natural flavor to dominate. Salt can enhance the flavor for food but too much destroys the flavor.

Nice Sunday Brunch
We went for brunch with our son who is a UDel student. The menu had some nice additions, which were reasonably priced, and we all enjoyed our dining experience. Nice location on Main Street. Will definitely return.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Every year for the past few years I have received an invitation to have a meal on my birthday. When I came this year, I was by myself and chose an early dinner time because I had a class to attend. The serving staff was very attentive and kind. I chose something off the menu (spaghetti & meatballs) which was served in a timely manner. The meal was EXCELLENT and more than I could finish. I chose an ice cream cone for dessert, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I came to dinner alone because I wanted to enjoy a quiet meal and I did. Thank you for the lovely birthday treat! It was excellent!

My husband and I had dinner on 10/23/2013. Very enjoyable experience from the time we walked in the door. Very friendly.
Service was great and dinner delicious.
We go often and enjoy it everytime.

We always get a superior meal at Caffe Gelato. The pork tenderloin was mouth watering! Owner Ryan and waitstaff Jackie made us feel welcome.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow and Wow. We enjoyed our meal so much at Cafe Gelato. Everything was cooked just right. The pasta and crab was delicious, and the steaks were awsome. My 13 year old ate the samon and loved it. It had been quite awhile since I had been to the restaurant, but it is back to my number one spot to eat when I want a good meal.

Great Dining at Caffe Gelato
Dining at Caffe Gelato is always a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and prepared just perfectly. Service was great with everyone being very helpful. Having the owner walk around and refill water at each table is a treat you hardly every see. Gives you a real personal touch that is much appreciated.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing place to eat.
In the era of chain restaurants and call waiting, Café Gelato is a gem to experience! Atmosphere is wonderful and inviting, food is amazing and creative, and service was very accommodating. We have eaten here on several occasions and never had a bad experience. Visiting for just the homemade gelato is worth the trip!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fab and fun
Celebrated my birthday with friends at Caffe Gelato. Good food (even got a free scallop while waiting for my party to arrive) and fabulous gelato sundae (with berries and granola). My friend ordered more gelato after the cute little complimentary one.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always walk away from Caffe Gelato happy and full! The food at CG is consistently presented as a feast first for the eyes and always delivers. This is our favorite restaurant in the Wilmington / Newark area.

Saturday Night Out
Very good food. Sirloin tips with tortellini was excellent. Server was great with lots of personality. He could have been a bit more attentive to the table. Drinks and refills arrived very slowly. Would definitely go back.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Suprise - Brunch!
I made a reservation for lunch and was very surprised to find out that they had a brunch menu on Sunday. The French Toast that I ordered was delicious (raspberry with vanilla cream sauce) although the raspberry puree was less than I expected and our server didn't recognize that it came out without the vanilla cream. He immediately remedied the situation but not before checking with the kitchen to make sure that I was correct. That surprised me - perhaps it was a new menu item or a recent menu change? I like Cafe Gelatto when I want yummy food and because I don't find the staff pretentious at all. They are all really nice. You can't leave without a small cup of the gelatto either. You can taste until you decide what flavor and then indulge!

Whenever we are in Newark,
Whenever we are in Newark, DE we never miss dining at Caffe Gelato. The restaurant is very nicely decorated with some very comfortable and cozy booths. They have an extensive wine list and a beautiful bar area and host many wine events. The owner is on premises which is an added benefit. Their menu is small but encompasses from light fare (sandwiches, salads) to pastas to fish and meat entrees and they have daily specials. They are known for their gelato and it is very good. So, don't miss Caffe Gelato.

I booked this restaurant for parents weekend but had never eaten here before. It was very clean and well staffed and the employees were friendly and helpful. They boast a very extensive menu sure to please anyone. The ambiance was beautiful and classy though a little loud however it was a Friday night during a very busy time of the school year. I highly recommend it.

Enjoyable dinner despite the noise
Lovely dinner with well prepared and presented food. Waiter was was well informed about the wine and was attentive and polite. It was very busy on a Friday night and we waited 30 minutes despite a reservation. The veal chop was fantastic and the pasta was very good. The cheese plate at the table next to us was very tempting, will have to try that next time.

My fiancée took me to Caffe Gelato for a date this past Saturday night and it was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Our server, Megan, was fantastic and very attentive. We ordered a bottle off of their extensive wine list at the recommendation of our server; it went perfectly with our meal! We ordered the house crafted pasta. The food came out quickly and was superb. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all of our friends and family.

Owner Ryan German always gives us a memorable meal at Caffe Gelato. Tonight we had the Smoked Salmon & Asparagus stuffed Ravioli (Jack) and Pan Seared Day Boat Diver Caught Sea Scallops (Patti).
