“The Best gelato in Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

This place is very easy to find near the Piazzetta. Just follow the fantastic scent of the waffle cones and your nose will be your guide.

This is, hands down, the best gelato I have enjoyed in all of Italy. I have tried gelato everywhere from Venice to Crotone and nothing compares to the ice cream at this establishment. The lines are long but the wait is worth it.

If you are in Capri and can eat ice cream, you are absolutely doing yourself a disservice if you do not indulge in at least one cone from Buonocore Geletaria!

Enjoy...

“Amazing Gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Delicious hand made gelato in fresh waffle cones. Must try the creamy chocolate gelato with hazelnuts! Walk around the gorgeous flower garden of Capri then go back for a second helping ;)

“Best Gelato in Italy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

This gelato was incredible. You can't miss the line out front, in the center of Capri. I'm not a hazlenut fan but the Fantasia di Capri flavor was amazing.

“3 words: To Die For!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The BEST Gelateria in Capri.....maybe in Italy for that matter. It was recommended to us by our hotel (JK Place). And by the line, I suspect it was recommended by many hotels. Besides the fact that the gelato itself is amazing, they make their own waffle cones right there. The smell wafts down the street and just lures you in. A basic cone is 2.50 Euro. It was totally delicious.
