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).
savory risotto and seasonal vegetables

Some of the best food on Main St!
Brendyn (Brenden?) was an excellent , attentive server. They have beautifully crafted covid dividers between tables. My salmon was perfectly cooked and they happily made a modification to one of the sides. My son always loves his Caesar salad, gelato, and whatever savory food he orders at this place. he had a pizza made to order- delicious.
We actually had 2 tables with 4 of us total and our business associate/ friend was very pleased with his food.
Covid19 precautions clearly in place--separation of tables and seating areas. I will return!
I have NEVER had a bad meal at Café Gelato. Just try it,...It will soon become your favorite go to restaurant!
Bottomless mimosas, attentive waiter and eggs benedict arogosta, super cute vibe inside... nuff said.
What a wonderful place for an intimate celebration. Will return again and again, if for o other reason but the salmon piccata!!
Waited 15 min after our reservation to be seated. The table was ready the whole time we waited. Dirty glasses, waiter was inexperienced and I could go on, but you get the point.
The food was delicious. We sat outside and it was cold. An outside heater would have been nice. Still one of my favorite restaurants!
The service, atmosphere, food, and drinks were all top-notch without being overly pricey. Don’t forget to save room for gelato!
Really wonderful dinner. We took advantage of Newark Restaurant Week and had the 3-course. All the food was really really delicious. Our server, Ava, was friendly and sweet. It’s obvious that management is putting a lot of effort into safe dining. We felt very comfortable. There were ample dividers up between seating areas and at the bar as well. The homemade gelato we had for dessert was delicious, as well!
Wonderful meal. Outstanding server.
Quiet private table.
The food was fine but a bit overpriced for the value. The ambience is very nice. The service was pretty poor - dishes were not removed from the table including when we got the check and after. The afterdinner coffees were lukewarm and the decaf order was given half a cup. This is a departure from past dining experiences we have had in this restaurant when the service was exceptional. A more serious problem: the person who treated our group of 3 checked her credit card statement two days later and found that $50 had been added to the amount of the meal. We had paid the tip in cash and it was noted so on the signed credit card payment. When she called the restaurant to inquire, she was told that the amount had been added to the credit bill "for the tip". Not only is this highly inappropriate and potentially fraudulent, but $50 represented a "tip" of over 30% (the cash tip was 25%, and that was very generous due to the less than stellar service). So, this is something the restaurant needs to look into and acertain it does not happen again to any other customers.
heater not workin outside. Took a VERY long time to get food. BUT what we did get was delicious.
Just awesome service by the staff. Thank you. Walt

Valentine’s Day Brunch.
The restaurant was decorated nicely but we were one table away from some kind of industrial floor dryer. The partitions between the booths presented a feeling of claustrophobia. The food was amazing. The waiter seemed to be running a lot. We didn't realize we were walking into a limited menu so that was a bit of a disappointment but the food was amazing! Great job!
Early Valentine’s Dinner was fabulous as always and the greenhouse gave us the comfort to enjoy the evening. Thanks again 💖
Great dinner! Loved the food and service! Awesome safe environment!
One of the best brunches on main street! Great menu.
Food was average, service is lacking, priced too high
Food as always, was delicious. We just had one snafu, it took a while to get our drinks and bread on our table (others who came in after us, were served before us).
Great dinner at Gelato. Only complaint would be timing of everything. From the time our order was placed to the time the apps came out was about 20 minutes. A bit long, but no issue. But not even 5 minutes later, dinner arrived. Apps were a salad and cheese board, nothing cooked. Leads me to believe they were sitting for the steak and lamb to come out so close behind. Luckily, because the apps weren’t cooked, we abandoned those and moved to our entrees, then came back to the cheese board at the end. They did run out of our dessert of choice, so a quick walk down to the cookie store worked out as well. Overall an enjoyable dining experience. Glad we made it out during the pandemic.
We loved every moment and are so happy we reserved and enjoyed the entire evening.
Took a while to get a waiter to see pay attention. In fairness, they were very busy and apologetic.
The restaurant week special was outstanding and a great value. I really wanted dessert but was too full from dinner! Their bread and dipping oil is so tasty, don't have too much, save room for the meal! Steaks were done just right, scallop appetizer was fantastic, lobster chowder also amazing.
