“A fantastic place for lunch and amazing ice cream - great value for money”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

This is a great find. Capri is full of expensive, overpriced eateries on the main streets. However, if you just want a quick takeaway/bite to eat for 3euros this is perfect. There are a few seats to sit in and eat but can get crowded. This is like an Italian bakers serving pizza, pastries, sandwiches, paninis and cakes, not to mention their amazing ice cream.

There are always large queues outside for the ice cream but it's definitely worth the wait. They even make their own waffles cones which are so good. Great quality at a really reasonable cost.

You won't find anywhere else on Capri that serve great lunch food at such a great price!

“Yummy!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

The best gelato I've ever had! Excellent :) I definitely recommend this place! This restaurant/gelateria is located on the main shopping street, and it is hard to miss it because of the huge line in front of it.

“Still Great After All These Years”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I am happy to see that some places never change and manage to retain their incredible quality and value. The ice cream in the home made waffle cones is a must, as are the tortina caprese and tortina a limone.

“Didn't disappoint”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This tiny gelateria has yummy selection and is located right in the shopping heart of Capri. Although it has a few tables, the place is small. You are really meant to grab your gelato and go. It is very very tasty and fresh. Always a line-up but it moves fast. Definitely worth a stop as you continue your way along the main shopping streets of Capri.

“One more reason to return to Capri”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Stayed on Capri at the hotel next door La Palma (4 stars - excellent) last week.
We so enjoyed Buonocore Gelateria's baked goods such as the fresh baked Canelloni and Crostone with at least one Cuppuccino in the morning. The line at the gelataria mobbed all day into the evening so skipped Gelato... ok a good reason to return just for the gelato, I know it will be worth the wait. Friendly crew!! We highly recommend Buonocore!!
