My husband and I spent some time in Capri in October 2016. I was craving some type of pastry or something bread like as I was still queasy from our boat trip. We came across this little pastry shop, Buonocore Gelateria. First off, when we walked in, no one said anything to us, or even acknowledged us being there. Personally,... More

Literally amazing gelato in waffle cones that they make right in front of your eyes! A definite must when in Capri!

The gelato was excellent. The person greeting was warm and friendly, but when we tried to sit outside, someone else came up and said no. Apparently, if you want to sit down, the price is doubled for whatever you order, i.e., espresso, gelato, etc. I have also experienced this in Pisa. Since the gelato was so good, this wasn't a...

I didn't end up trying the ice cream at Buonocore, because I ate too many of their fantastic lemon cookies. Seriously, you have to try them. Don't wait in line at the ice cream bar, go inside and look around - so many types of amazing desserts in there! My boyfriend's favourite was the pistachio cookie but hear me out,... More

We got to Capri and we saw most of all the beautiful sights that the isle had to offer. We were told that if we were to do ourselves one favour on the isle, that would be to go and have an ice cream from this particular icecreamy. We thought that it would be just a normal place, but, were... More

It is the place you must visit. The best ice-cream I have ever tasted, but also the Caprilù cookies are a must taste. We also tasted all different kinds of cookies, but also their home made plates like squid salad etc are just perfect. Ideal for take-away if you don't want to visit a restaurant. On top of that the... More

This is a good place to grab a quick bite if you do not have time or do not want to sit down at one of the many restaurants. Had a panini and salad, both were good, waitresses were very nice and helpful. Waffle cones are made fresh, this the smell that draws you to their location.

Doesn't live up to the hype especially rated as No.1 in the whole of Capri. Rude ladies on the counter, watery mediocre tasting gelatos, pastries were stale and tasted like they were made 3 days ago. The lady made us walk back and forth to the pay counter and despite watching us pay she demanded the receipt for proof and... More
