Me and my same sex couple were visiting and when we went to change out of swim suits to explore the island, the host told us, “leave and never come back”. We had paid and cannot find another reason for his rudeness.More

We stopped here for lunch on a very quick trip to Capri. It’s right by the harbour so easy to access from the ferry. There was traditional Italian food but also some beach snacks like burgers and sandwich’s. We went for this (having been here...for 10 days and being full of pasta!). The burger and toastie were both good and the chips were to die for! Avoid the Bellini cocktail (strange foamy sour drink)! Otherwise a perfect place to sit and watch the world go byMore

In early July I booked da Gemma for a dinner in late August; the booking was confirmed. Just yesterday, I received an email cancelling my reservation -- two weeks prior to dinner; a Saturday night! No explanation; no offer of an alternative time or date....Clearly the restaurant had to accommodate someone more important. I'm going to tell our hotel, the Quisisana, about this. The restaurant may be good with beautiful views, but this is no way to treat a customer. There are plenty of other restaurants on Capri.More

I loved this place. The location, the restaurant, the food and the wine were all excellent. So, why the 1 star? My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with a long awaited and much anticipated Italian holiday. After much research on TripAdvisor,...I booked a trip to Capri with lunch at Da Gemma. I made the booking 6 weeks in advance, advising them of our anniversary, how I wanted a table right by the sea edge and that it was a very special day. When in Italy, I also asked the hotel reception to call and confirm everything would be just right. On arrival we were shown to one of just 2 tables in direct sunlight which, at 13:30 in the midday sun, was not ideal. These were in fact the only free tables by the sea. I requested a shaded location and was told this would be ready in just a few minutes. I had booked our return boat trip back to Sorrento at 15:20 so we still had plenty of time for a lovely lunch. There was one table that would have been ideal, but a couple who had just rocked up 30 seconds in front of me with no reservation were given this! After a further 15 minute wait we were offered the corner table - by the sea and in the shade but very breezy, due to it's location. A plastic awning could be employed to reduce the breeze, if we liked, which we didn't, since it ruined the view. So, back to the original table in the sun to wait some more... Finally, at 14:05 we sat down and were offered a drink, with 1hr and 15 mins for our special lunch before we had to catch the return ferry. My wonderful wife did her best to calm me down and insisted that everything was great but, for me, the special lunch on a very special day, that I had been planning for months had turned into a disaster. With 10 minutes to go before we had to leave, we were offered a limoncello and a couple of cakes by way of apology - or maybe by way of an acknowledgement of our anniversary, since there had been none up to this point. either way, we had no time left to enjoy these. We necked the drinks, asked for a doggy bag for the cakes and left. What should have been a very special day for us both turned into a source of great frustration and disappointment, simply because they seemed incapable, or unwilling, to fulfil a very simple (but very important) reservation request. I'm still asking myself why!More

We had just arrived in Capri and were very excited to have a nice early dinner. I had read the reviews and decided to try it for ourselves. We had a bottle of rose a caprese mozzerella with beautiful tomatoes and basil. Then we had...their grilled octopus over a puree of mashed potatoes served with fresh green beans. The presentation was lovely and the service was great. The owner came over to make sure that we were happy and we felt that the staff cared about their guests. The views overlooking the water made the experience special. We highly recommend it.More

Worst meal we had in Italy. Terrible service and horrible food. They did not even bother to de vein the shrimp in their mixed fried seafood or take out the bones of the fish. I could not try a bite of it without gagging. The...pasta with clams was bland and thick and the sauce was not tasty. The risotto had one shrimp cut into five pieces and was forgettable at best. We asked for pepper and it never came. Asked for ice and that was also not brought. Asked for our lack luster leftovers to be packed and they never brought them back. We asked for a side order of mashed potatoes for our baby and they charged 10 euros for lumpy, raw potatoes. We paid 116 Euros in all for two people, one 5 year old and a nine month old to eat here. It would have been fine if the food had been even half decent but we have had way better for a third of the price all over the Amalfi coast. Please avoid this tourist trap that charges high prices for very sub standard food.More
