Another great dinner at Caffe Gelato. The veal chop wrapped in prosciutto was excellent! Wine selection is good - many options to pick from across a wide price range.
great dinner, we enjoyed everything
Friendly, inviting and comfortable. Our first time there and we'll be back.
Entrees were prepared as ordered and were nicely presented. Tuna had a savory seasoning and pork chops were tender and moist. Service was excellent.
Went to the caffe for a post valentines dinner. Reservations were the Saturday after valentine's day at 630. Check in was in an outside area enclosed in plastic. They did provide a propane heater which was appreciated. I had to go inside to see where the hostess was though. Once inside, it appeared that they set up extra tables for the romantic holiday. Bad idea. Tables were way too close. It was impossible to have conversation due to the level of noise. The whole dinner we had to keep an eye on our glasses while the wait staff shuffled between the tables. The food was sub par for the price. Service was slow. To sum up the night, we were so disappointed that we didn't even get dessert, their infamous gelato.
I went Valentine's day weekend and was overall satisfied with the meal. It was a little overpriced (especially the drinks) but it was great for a date.
Went there on Valentine's day and it was somewhat dissappointing. We had 8:30 reservations and didn't get seated until 9:30. I understand that it is Valentine's day and they were swamped but they should have limited reservations even if it meant we didn't get one. The food was good, as usual, and especially considering that they were swamped. They featured a 7-course meal and everything was good. Our server was great and had a marvelous attitude but was so busy that courses didn't come out when they were supposed to. Example: we were to have a sorbet between the appetizer and meal that didn't come. The waiter apologized profusely and we did get the sorbet after the meal...we also didn't get any bread. Still good but...
We were thinking about Caffe Gelato for catering our wedding. We decided what better time to see what they could do than V-day... what a mistake. We made reservations for 7:45 &when we arrived the line to check in was 10 couples deep. Already making everyone wait outside, I can't say it was out the door. Once we got towards the top of the list, we were asked to go wait by the bar. There was little room to stand; we were against a railing "near" the bar but not at it basically in a walkway next to another couple and a table. After waiting 56 minutes, watching small plates go past us, we made reservations at another restaurant and walked out the door. If you can't succeed in your own V-day plans, I do not think we'll use you for a wedding
We have been to Caffee Gelato on a number of occasions with excellent results. However, this time we went for Valentine's Day and experience a long wait to be seated. All of the courses were excellent except for the main course which was warm at best.
We always have a good meal and experience at Caffe Gelatio.
We went there for Valentine's dinner. We don't eat red meat or drink wine. The staff had no problem with that. It was fun getting all the courses of the meal brought out just as we completed the previous one. Everything was so delicious and creative. We could not have chosen a better place to enjoy the special night. We hadn't been there in years. We were happy to see the owner still actively involved with the customers' satisfaction. We will go there again soon.
We have eaten there before. It is some what expensive for what you get. I ordered a salad with salmon and the fish was very dry. We have had better meals, but it was free with my birthday coupon
Had a great dinner at Cafe Gelato. The rack of lamb was terrific as was the scallops on rosotto. The deserts are always great as is the wine list. We always have a great time there.
Very accomodative to special requests and a last minute weather-related flight change that forced us to move the reservation time later. Great food and service! Our group really enjoyed our meal from appetizers to desert. Thank you!
The food and service at Caffe Gelato is outstanding. We always enjoy our evening here.
My wife and I visited Caffé Gelato on our anniversary to celebrate that event and to take advantage of the generous Anniversary Gift Coupon that Caffé Gelato had sent us. Although not planned, we both ate exactly the same thing: Giardiniera Salad and Maple Roasted Salmon (with roasted butternut squash, pecan compound butter and sautéed Brussels sprouts chips). It was outstanding; and the service was outstanding as well. I had two scoops of the exceptional house made Gelato and which we shared. We concluded with excellent coffee.
Café Gelato is a regular on our list any anniversary gift was a special treat. The Maple Roasted Salmon is one of their best dishes and they did themselves proud that evening. We will be back… soon!
The food was great as was the service. We sat in a half moon type booth which made for a nice romantic dinner.
The food was absolutely amazing. The plates were a finish-able size, and both my steak tip tortellini, and his bacon wrapped veal chop were -to die for-. For dessert we had creme brulee and gelato - we almost got a second one. Instead we settled for gelato-to-go. :)
The service was alright. We had no troubles ordering or placing our food, but when we paid (with a gift card) we found there was no way to leave a tip. We spent a good 15 minutes trying to catch the eye of our waitress before we ended up getting another server to get her for us...all so we could run her tip on a credit card. I was close to leaving without tipping her, and it stunned us that she just didn't even glance in our direction for 15 minutes straight.
Good place for a special event or just a good meal out.
Friendly service, very attentive and the food was delicious, enjoyable and generous portions.
Really good food. I've never been disappointed with anything they've served. I enjoy the specials and the fresh ingredients in everything. It makes a difference. Good wine selection to go with everything.
We enjoyed a great dinner during restaurant week in Newark. The dinner was most appealing and just as delicious as we have had many of
I love the atmosphere, no matter what meal you come in for, it fits. My favorite is the spinach salad; always good and refreshing. Thanks.
Never had a bad meal at Cafe Gelato but the quirky service has sometimes let us down. The wait staff needs adult supervision. Still we'll keep going back.
Food was great and our server was outstanding. Will definitely return.
My wife and I visited Caffé Gelato, a family favorite, for dinner during Newark Restaurant Week. We both had selections from the Restaurant Week list of special prix fixe menu. The selections were notable for their novelty, their culinary skill, and the price. Service was good but not outstanding. Caffé Gelato is well known to us and met our expectations with the advantage of Restaurant Week dishes and attractive prices. No surprises here!
Food was good but not great this time. I ordered the scallops which usually come out with the golden brown crust but this time it appeared they were burned or overcooked.
The menu is always good though at times can be pricey for a small Main St restaurant. The staff is usually knowledgable and helpful with suggestions or descriptions of the selections.
Caffe Gelato is always lovely. Pasta special of the day was amazing. Good wine selection with delicious homemade focaccia and varied menu for foodies. A bit crowded and loud, but one could still find romantic conversation and privacy. Don't hesitate to head to Caffe Gelato!
Everything about our lunch experience was excellent from the hostess who seated us to the server and even one of the owners who we chatted with on our way out. There was some noise at first, as it sounded like there was construction or something going on in the building but it didn't last long. Very comfortable dining room too. This was my first time at this restaurant and highly recommend it.
In the heart of Newark's University of Delaware, this is a hot spot and an excellent restaurant for brunch, lunch and dinner. The decor is warm and inviting and the servers are great and most are University of Delaware students. From sandwiches to entrees to gelato, they do it all and do it well. This is a don't miss when we are in the area.
Excellent food. Service was a bit below average. Meals a bit overpriced.
I have been going to Caffe Gelato for the last twelve years since Ryan first opened. We especially like the gelato's with all of the different flavors. I have never had even a mediocre meal. A special program we enjoy is the Birthday and Anniversary dinners given to you, a very nice touch. I recommend anyone who is in Newark to try Caffe Gelato you won't be disappointed.
When in Newark, DEs don't miss Caffe Gelato. It is a beautiful restaurant with a really y nice bar with a great variety of martinis. They have daily lunch and dinner specials that are very good. And, they use organic, local, and fresh ingredients in there dishes. The owner is usually on premises and tries to talk to his diners. Also, save room for dessert as their gelato is very good.
Caffe Gelato is a beautifully appointed restaurant in the heart of the University of Delaware. Whether you want a lite bite or entree there is something for everyone. The staff is great, very friendly & knowlegeable and many are University of Delaware students. They have an extensive martini, wine etc. menu. And, definitely save room for their famous Gelato. Parking is validated in the parking lot behind the restaurant which is just an added amenity for this wonderful restaurant.
We went the other night for our anniversary. The service, ambiance and the food were great. We have been there dozens of times over the years since the opened. They have never let us down. My husband and I love it
Delivers as always! I have never been disappointed with a nice rounded up Italian menu and great service. Feels more like something that should be in NYC.
Absolutely a wonderful evening. We've eaten here many times and have always found the menu to be excellent and interesting. This occasion was a New Year's Eve wine dinner with a live band. The owner greeted each guest at the door with champagne and the night took off from there. A pleasant mix of guests at private and family style tables and the food and wine flowed spectacularly from the efficient kitchen and waitstaff. The normally quiet and reserved restaurant took on a festive atmosphere and we were provided one of the most entertaining and well put-together evenings I've had in many years. The Caffee Gelato hosts many special events through the year and we'll be back for more. Love the restaurant and loved the party!
We have been to Caffe Gelato a number of times and this is the first time I can't say I was impressed. The meal and service was mediocre. I suspect it was due to the time of year, December 26th, and the available staff. We were disappointed
Attentive but not obstructive service with very good food and very nice wine list! Good opportunity for any occasion!
