Nice Meal

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.

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

While celebrating a late Valentines Day my husband and I made a reservation at Caffe Gelato. We were looking for something elegant with awesome upper scale food. We arrived and the restaurant was pretty empty. There was only one other table being served. The waiter we had was great and the wine was really good but the food was just... More

We have eaten at Caffe Gelato many times, and have never been disappointed in the choice of menu items, or the flavor of what we ordered.;

It was a set menu,, beginning with champagne and oysters, followed by a shrimp risotto and a bottle of Chardonnay. A very good salad came next and then a baked lobster tail. Desert was a chocolate covered Strawberry and a very good brownie. I've never had a bad meal there and they seem to be getting better in my opinion.

I've had a few decent meals here, but the quality has been spotty and the service unpredictable. Wait staff seems confused and unmotivated. Kitchen can be slow, but not always. Portion size is adequate but the price is well above the quality. It'll do if you can't get in elsewhere and having ability to make Open Table reservation is a... More
