Visited for lunch a few weeks ago. Was happy that they were open during the holidays in late December. We were a party of 4 and had read about this place here on TA beforehand and were looking for the whole Italian experience. Well, we got it. We were the only party in the restaurant for the first hour that we were there. We had the feeling of sitting in an Italian home and being welcomed with a delicious meal. We started with plates of antipasti. Meat, cheeses, olives, grilled vegetables and with their own homemade wine. It was divine - so we had two more bottles! We had homemade breads and pasta dishes that don't taste like what I can get at home....Heavenly! After finishing with some espresso, Pasquale, one of the family members that runs the B&B, told us about some viewing spots on the Island that I'm not sure we would have found without him telling us (see pics). He then offered to drive us back to the bus station so we could get back to the port for the ferry back to Sorrento. Just so, so friendly and kind.

I will not only go back to eat here again, but will stay next time. Thank you Pasquale for making our experience so lovely.

the restaurant was recommended to us from some foodies we met in Sorrento. we called for a reservation 45 minutes before arriving (best to call, because they'll save you a good table). we misunderstood the directions. apparently the restaurant said they'd send a shuttle for us in the center of Anacapri in 10 minutes, but we interpreted it as being a 10 minute walk. so, we walked, along a charming "street" that one small car could barely fit on. for maybe 20+ minutes. despite octeoginerian parents complaining that the walk was too far and that we should turn back, when we finally arrived it was heaven. the view was fantastic. my pasta was so-so, but perhaps i ordered poorly, because everyone else's was great. they make their own wine there without preservatives, so it's only good for a day once they pull it out of the cask. the white was much better than the red. the homemade lemoncello sublime. but the magic of the place was the serenity. after fighting crowds all day (we only did a day trip) on the ferry, the funicular, the busses, the towns of Capri and Anacapri, it was so peaceful to arrive at the restaurant and receive attentive but unobtrusive service in a patio restaurant with the best view ever. it was such a haven i didn't want to leave. of note, they do have a hotel with a pool. i would love to go back and stay there with a group of good friends.

Da Gelsomina sits on a secluded road near Belvedere-Migliera close to the beautiful town of Anacapri. Needless to say, the minute you walk into this lovely restaurant, it's apparent how much this family loves what they do. The setting and view is magnificent, but the food is spectacular. The grow their own vegetables and raise chickens as well. The menu is filled with wonderful choices and our waiter recommended a local wine to complement our meal. The cost of our meal was extemely reasonable as well. When you are done, you can walk less than 5 minutes for the most amazing views from the point!! Ahhhh...glorious!!

We walked up there from the town of Anacapri and watched the sunset from the belvedere. Were seated near the windows so we could see the view out over the Bay of Naples. It was cool and the nearest heater didnt work, so they brought a new heater over to near our table. the food was really good, service excellent. They provide a shuttle service back into Anacapri town, so you don't have to walk back in the dark. It is a must try restaurant when you are in Capri.
