Relaxed atmosphere, vibrant bar, good wine cellar (Wine Spectator Award of Excellence), great food, delicious house-crafted gelato and house-crafted pasta.

At dinner try the Daily Salmon, Center-Cut Filet Mignon, or any of our 6 House Crafted Pasta dishes. Weekend Brunches feature omelets, crepes, poached eggs, and Creme Brulee French Toast.

Came during Newark restaurant week. Great menu and we were seated promptly. Ravioli special was a large portion but bland. Disappointed that there weren't any pasta dishes with red sauce... most were cream based. My husband had a large floating thing in bottom of beer glass. Waiter didn't fix and we were charged for it.

Caffe Geloto is my favorite restaurant in the Newark area. The food is always delicious and the service excellent. They have plexiglass partitions between tables. You need not be concerned about covid.

To be honest, it was the hostess that made the night an absolute stress. I made a reservation 4 hours in advance. I noted that I had a toddler and an infant that needed a high chair. The girl seats us outside in the cold even though there’s seating inside available. I expressed to her that I had requested inside due to the children and she stated “There’s an event going on inside, not my problem” So we sat down outside and the heat in not blowing in the tent, sitting on cold metal chairs with wobbly tables. I spoke with the manager who brought us inside to one of the available tables. After that the night was great, but her attitude and lack of care was horrendous.

I visit at least once a year as a post special event dining experience. The food was good just not as “great” as I have had the past. Will try again. Service was very active yet perhaps stretched. I believe my seat was located against a kitchen service area as I could hear a lot of dishes and other activities through my time seated. Overall not bad just not their best hoping to try again with the level I came used to

Got Michael as our waiter. He was very courteous, helpful and efficient. We had been to Gelato often before the pandemic. This was our second time coming back. Can't say that we were not disappointed. Prices are up, that's a given with inflation. However the quality of the food has deteriorated, that was sad (We thought that's only for the take-out). Ryan, you just can't raise the price and give people subpar quality. Fortunately Michal's service was wonderful. We didn't even bother him with complaints. Will definitely be back to give it another try, but it most probably will take us some time before coming back.
