Love this gelato!! Went back the following year just to have another. The best is the one with the sugar cone in the gelato. It’s worth waiting in line. Not to mention the sugar cone made in front of you completes the perfection of this...More

Although we've been sampling gelato shops every day this trip, what a treat to come across Gelateria Buonocore in Capri. You smell it before you see it as fresh cones are cooking all day. The gelato is perfect and the cone is warm. Many delicious...More
