About the restaurant
Relaxed atmosphere, vibrant bar, good wine cellar (Wine Spectator Award of Excellence), great food, delicious house-crafted gelato and house-crafted pasta. Guests may request a semi-circle booth for parties up to 8 (Max capacity is reduced due to pandemic restrictions), or a nice table. Outdoor seating is available and large groups may request a private room.
Caffe Gelato celebrates its 17-year anniversary. For lunch, look forward to trying our pressed panini on fresh baked sea-salt and rosemary foccacia, the featured salads, or a 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. Favorite gelato flavors are Bacio (Chocolate Hazelnut), Crème Brûlée Toffee, Dark Chocolate, and Stracciatella (Chocolate Chip).

Had not been to Gelato for a while. This used to be our most favourite restaurant in Newark. Glad that we gave it another try. Food was as good as before, if not better. Even with the increased prices, it's worth it. You want good food, pay for it. We were greeted by Tori, a new "charming" addition to Gelato. Then we had Karen as our waitress. She was very attentive and thorough with our orders. Poor Karen, it seemed like she's the only waiter in the whole section. Fortunately, Tori stepped in when needed. It was a very pleasant lunch, would have been even better if they had cranked up the air conditioner to lower the temperature. Granted it was brutal outside, they should have kept it more comfortable indoors (maybe because of the pizza oven??)

This was one of the best brunch buffets I’ve attended. While the selection wasn’t huge, each item on the buffet was fresh, well-cooked and delicious. The service and atmosphere were also wonderful.
