Gateway Community College is pleased to welcome the public to our culinary lab-restaurant, Café Vincenzo. Touted as a “hidden gem” by the Mara Lavitt of NewHavenEats, this unique and popular dining experience offers the public a gourmet dining experience while GCC’s culinary students gain real-world work experience preparing for careers in the hospitality industry.

Café Vincenzo is located at the corner of George and Church Street, in GCC’s South building in Room S102. The south building is bordered by George Street, Church Street (which is the best entrance for the Café), Frontage Road and Temple Street. Parking is available on Church Street at meters. The college validates parking for the Temple Garage. Guests must check in with security when entering the campus buildings (security validates parking tickets).
