** Due to the ongoing pandemic, Cafe Vincenzo and Culinary Catering is only serving the GCC community at this time.  We hope to be open to the public again soon.

Gateway Community College is pleased to welcome the public to our culinary program’s restaurant, Café Vincenzo. Touted as a “hidden gem” by Mara Lavitt of NewHavenEats, the café offers a gourmet meal with fine dining ambiance, while Gateway’s culinary students gain real-world work experience preparing for careers in the hospitality industry. Café Vincenzo is located in Gateway’s South building Room 102, at the corner of George and Church. The south building is bordered by George Street (best entrance for the Cafe), Church Street, M.L.K. Jr. Blvd, and Temple Street. The college validates parking for the Temple Street Garage, which has entrances on Crown and George Street. Guests must check-in with security when entering the campus buildings (security validates parking tickets).

Reservations are required. Reservation requests and questions can be directed to Will Stewart, wstewart@gatewayct.edu, 203-285-2269. Please include your name, telephone number, the number in your party, and date(s) that you’d like to dine, and someone will confirm your request prior to your visit. Payment is due on the date of your visit.

Bon Appetit!
