It is really is hard to find great service in 2014 and we had not one but two stellar servers for lunch. They were attentive, quick, competent and friendly. The food was good but typical lunch fare. I really enjoyed the atypical service and will return to try something on the dinner menu.

We only had the gelato and it was absolutely delicious! Several choices available and they allowed us to taste before we decided. Salted caramel, pecan praline and raspberry were all yummy!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the Newark, DE environs. The quality of the food is exceptional, the service is wonderful and the dinning room is cozy and warm.

We were headed to the Newark for a getaway weekend last week and I checked online for restaurant possibilities. I came across Caffe Gelato, loved the menu, and went for dinner. We walked in to music playing, a fun crowd, and we loved the ambiance. Our server was quite efficient. We had a wonderful birthday dinner and were very impressed... More

My daughter is a acollege senior at U of D, so have been here a few times, but was never "wowed". We tried again last weekend, just to see if this resturant was different this time around. Service was very slow, but we were not in a hurry, so that was not really an issue for us. My short rib... More

Good food, great gelato, nice wine. Better when it is not crowded as it gets too noisy later in the evenings.

This is a great place for any meal. We were here for lunch recently and everything was great. Service was a little slow, but everything else was wonderful.

great food but on the high end for a college town. Best buy is the pasta for two to go only $25 and you get a gelato with it

Enjoyed a birthday dinner with the family here and had a great meal as always! Our granddaughter liked the pizza from the children's menu as always and gelato for dessert is a treat!

On average I like the food here. But just last week, I had a pasta dish that was very underwhelming.
