You can smell the waffle cones from down the street, where the line starts. But it's worth it. The cones are warm and the glelato is memorable.

Great quality gelato, served in cones that are freshly made in front of you. A bit of a queue, but worth the wait. Highly recommend this place!

Very very good ice cream!! There’s almost always a line, but the e line goes really fast. Definitely worth waiting in the line. They make the cones for you at the spot, so they are nice and warm. They have a lot of good flavors...as well, my favorites where straciatella and after eight. Yummy!More

First time I tasted freshly hot cone! The ice cream was very good. They could add some more flavours. There is a long que but it is moving quickly.

You can smell the sugar a mile away! They make the best gelato in Capri, and the waffle cones are freshly made and still warm. Make sure to take home some Caprilu cookies too. The line may seem long, but it goes quickly and is...well worth the wait.More

Each time we walked past this cafe there was a huge queue for the gelato. We tried a few snacks from the cafe inside but eventually caved in and got the gelato too. Sometimes the queue isn’t so bad so you just have to time...it right. I love that they make their own waffle ice cream cones and they also do it in a brioche bun, which I’d never seen before. As others have commented, it’s very nice gelato but it did not blow my mind. I liked the pistachio but was not keen on the other flavour recommended to me by the lady. Regardless I’d say you have to try gelato from here if you’re in Capri.More

There was a decent line when we showed up. We ordered the milk and cream and the strawberry. This is good gelato, but I’m not sure what all the hype is about. I have seen multiple travel bloggers talk about this place. There are many...better places to have gelato in Italy.More

This is, without a doubt, the best gelateria in all Capri. The make the cones in front of you and have very good flavors. Babá an Tiramisu were our favorites. We went on 3 different opportunities even though there are more gelaterias in Capri, this...one is by far the bestMore

Definitely worth waiting in the line! Delicious gelato - some of the best in Italy. They also have gluten free cones and the woman not only used a new scooper but also pushed the exposed gelato out of the way to make sure I got...completely uncontaminated gelato - incredible service.More

Best gelato in Italy. Our local driver Luigi recommended it. He would know he was born and raised on Capri. I don't doubt him and I trust him on anything he says. Very nice chocolate double scoop come on a warm sunny day. Didn't get...any better in my humble opinion. Enjoy.More

I was on a day trip to Capri from a cruise and I didn't fancy a big lunch so this place was idea for a light lunch of a calzone and ice cream. Staff were okay, I had no issues with my request to heat...my calzone and the ice cream was lovely. The freshly made cones were delicious and worth paying the extra. I did walk around and look at various cafes I must admit the food in this one looked handmade and not mass produced. Not cheap but you are in Capri so nothing is really cheap. Grab your food and take a seat on one of the benches in the Piazzetta. Happy Days.More

Always a line outside for gelato. Worth the wait. Definitely try to go inside and get some pastries for morning coffee on your hotel balcony. Smells so delicious when you walk in, you’ll have a hard time deciding what you want.

Perhaps because we had not been in Capri for many years, we were not aware of this ice cream shop. It is certainly the best ice cream shop on the island, and is located in via Vittorio Emanuele, halfway between the "Piazzetta" and the Hotel...Quisisana. We found this lovely, cute, small shop by accident. There is a lot of choice of flavors and the ice cream is really good: creamy and with an intense flavor. What for us was the "real surprise", however, were the desserts, the pastries with ricotta and almonds, the unique Capri cake with chocolate, the Rum baba, the cannoli, the one person size pastiera and the prepared dishes of Neapolitan cuisine, like many pasta dishes, cannelloni, pasta quiches, eggplant parmigiana, 'mozzarella in carrozza' (fried slices of sandwich bread stuffed with melted mozzarella). The prices are reasonable for the high quality of their ice creams and deli products. Very often there is a queue outside, but it's worth it. We visited this place almost every day, buying their "grab and go" items, or take away, for lunch or afternoon snack. Highly recommended!More

According to our guidebook, this pasticceria invented the torta caprese. As fans of cake, it seemed appropriate to try the original torta caprese while in Capri. While there was a huge crowd milling out the front, they were just there waiting for waffles, while the...pasticceria itself was completely empty, this was made more obvious by the big empty space in front of the cabinets. I assume in the past there were tables, but it is no longer possible to eat in. We tried to order two cakes but the super pushy waitress insisted we'd ordered three and very grumpily out back the cake we hadn't asked for. Trying to get a take away coffee was also harder than it should have been. The joke was on me though because the coffee wasn't that great. Prices are much higher than in Naples, but given that it was Capri we weren't surprised. Nonetheless, the torta was a lovely chocolate cake, while the pear and ricotta sandwich cake was divine.More
