After having enjoyed lying chairs on the beach we went for lunch to the restaurant part where waiters gave us excellent recommendations from the menu. Everything was perfect, from food to service. We strongly advise that place if you want a Capri farniente experience.
We had a dreadful meal at Da Gemma today. We allowed 1 hour 40 minutes for our meal as we knew we needed to catch a ferry afterwards which we thought should be more than long enough for a 2 course meal.
We had booked...a table for 2 o’clock but it wasn’t ready and we weren’t seated until 2:15. We managed to order pretty quickly and the menu is lovely, but we then waited over an hour for our starters. After 40 minutes of waiting we spoke to the waitress to inform her we had a ferry to catch and had already been waiting a long time but there was no urgency at all - only 25 minutes later did the food come. Over an hour waiting for a starter! Meanwhile we watched tables around us get served starters and mains while we were waiting. I have never known anything like it and such little remorse or apology from the staff. The restaurant was by no means heaving, with it probably half empty by the time we got served.
We ended up having to cancel our mains as we ran out of time (again, the staff didn’t seem to care at all) and rushed out shortly after. The food itself was very nice but no chance we would go back - the slowest service I’ve ever experienced in a restaurant and no gesture of apology at all.
Thoroughly disappointed as we were so looking forward to this meal. Gutted.More
Came during covid, meaning it was very calm. Right by the water, really beautiful. Amazing pastas both with seafood and tomatoes. My friend had a tooth ache and the staff was really nice and accommodating.
Capri is hard to leave. Which is why we decided to try the beach club and restaurant at De Gemma to squeeze in a few more hours of the experience before returning to Naples. Assuming the location of this beach club would draw the crowds...we didn’t expect too much in terms of peace and cuisine. We were utterly wrong. De Gemma served us the best lunch we’ve experienced on Capri with the same friendly, precise service, and a tranquil yet vibrant area lounge. We listened to the waves crash and playing children squeal with delight whilst happily reading our books. Once again another lesson in the benefits of assuming nothing. Artfully prepared fresh pasta and crisp wines by the glass. Will definitely return.More
My partner and I visited during a day trip from Sorrento to Capri. We reserved sunloungers at the beach club so we could use the facilities and the beautiful beach, and later had lunch at the restaurant. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. Very...knowledgable on the menu, and great at recommending the best local dishes. The food and wine were fantastic, and very well priced for the location. We would definitley visit again should we visit Capri in the future.More
We came here because of reviews in Tripadvisor. Nice view to sea. Service was friendly but unfortunately food was only average. Spaghetti with tomatoes was good but swordfish with vegetables was a bit dry. Price was in the same level than other similar places. Tourist...trap with nice view, that’s all.More
