First time visit. Poor service, Food not on par with a "good" Italian restaurant. Ordered off special menu- Sausage Stuffed Ravioli. Six small stuffed ravioli with 'limp' spinach leaves all drowning in a cream sauce.

I have eaten at Cafe Gelato many times. Located on Main Street, Newark. The location draws many people from the Univ. of Delaware which is within walking distance. The food, service and truly great gelato are all good. They have a good menu selection as well as variety. They have a special if it is your birthday receive a card... More

Superb scallop and fresh greens salad entree (3 out of 4 in our party ordered this!), crab soup, amazing appetizers including very unique presentation of the tasty tomato and mozzarella appetizer and incredible gelato sundaes! Definitely a great dining spot not to be missed in the quaint town of Newark!

By far the best Italian food in Delaware. Great service, great atmosphere, decent prices, full bar, and desserts are out of this world. Great place for a family, business, or group dinner.

I was taken to Caffe Gelato as part of a large business dinner. I wasn't feeling great, but the restaurant was comfortable and the food was delicious. I was served the wrong beer, but otherwise my meal was delicious. I had a grilled chicken ceasar, which was perfectly done in terms of the meat addition, the freshness of the greens... More

Cafe Gelato is one of the best restaurants in Newark. The food is always top notch, and the gelato is very tasty and addictive. I often get the braised beef short rib on polenta with truffle oil and micro greens. I resolve that I will try something different, and then I get there and I just have to order it.... More

It's been a couple of years since I have eaten here, so I though this would be a good place to go with my mom and a family friend. The food was just okay. I had the pasta special with smoked Italian sausage with shrimp and roasted artichokes in a red pepper cream sauce. The Italian sausage was bland, gristly,... More

Nice place, friendly services, and good appetizer and desert. However, it's so disappointed that the entree is bad. Taste strange and tiny size. What I order is a brunch special. Should try something different next time.

We've eaten at this local restaurant on many occasions plus attended numerous special events such as wine dinners and New Year's Eve celebrations. Food and service were always very good. However, we visited on a Monday evening for my husband's birthday and were extremely disappointed with the service and the food. The service was sooooo slow even though the restaurant... More
