Been to the restaurant itself once and was very very good. Been to events they have catered 2-3 times and delicious. Staff in both places always friendly. Fine dining in the establishment. Catered much more of the same but modified for finger foods. We don't get to Neward often but if you are there it is worth checking out,

We love Caffe Gelato in Newark for the consistently great fine dining experience. We were greeted pleasantly by Hostess Allison who facilitated our Open Table reservation with a special request for a half moon booth in the new section. Our waiter Garrett performed admirably with a smile each time he attentively approached the table. Our dinner choice was Tenderloin Tip... More

We had just finished touring Univ of Delaware and hopped across the street to find Caffe Gelato open for brunch on Saturday (and Sunday) from 10:30 am to 3 pm. And the menu was extensive. We opted for the divine mascarpone-maple braised pears crepe and a special pancake (sweet potato maybe?). They have eggs, salads and entrees, too. Lots of... More

Great gelato, but only so-so food. Trying hard to be upscale, but should just stick with good Italian food. Went with a large group and our fixed menu was lacking. Enjoyed it, but felt the effort wasn't 100% there.

A nice outdoor patio for a leisurely lunch with wine. Great spinach salad with crispy onions and goat cheese. Friendly service & did not feel rushed as I sat for 2 hours and read some literature.

The food is good, but small portions for a bit of a high price. The atmosphere is really fancy too. I appreciate the new vegetarian menu!

We went here to celebrate the departure of a good friend. The food tasted great, but the portions were way too large. Even though we took much of the food home, we ended up throwing it away later. The website said that each entree came with a small side salad, but we were told no-and that 'the web page must... More

Homeade paste, homeade bread, homeade gelato in tons of flavors, homeade balsamic dressing. The capellini (homeade) with shrimp and lumped crab in a rose sauce is bellisimo! And the polenta w/ short rib appetizer? OMG. And of course the Gelato! Peanut butter chocolate for me. Soooo good. Washed all of that down with a Gin Fresco - cut gin, mint,... More
