“Beautiful views great food!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at their sister villa, villa ceselle, and the staff were kind enough to reserve us a table on the terrace and transportation. They will also pick up guests from anacapri. Definitely worth the views and our meal was great as well. We tried the house red and thought it was good. The staff are lovely but it did take a little bit longer to get our check. Not sure if that is any different from any place in Italy though lol. We just enjoyed our meal and the views so we can't complain. Also short walk to great views of the light house and faraglioni. All worth it

“Good Food Spectacular Location”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The food was very good but the welcome and the location were second to none. We had the privilege of eating with local so got special treatment, but if you want a place to eat that blows your mind then this is one to check out!

“The views make it worth it”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

The views are superb, the overall setting is upscale the food is good but not outstanding, the house wine was unfortunately not my favorite among those I tried in southern Italy despite what the waiter said . The service is excellent includes pick-up and drop-off. I think that it is overpriced but I may be wrong as I haven't been to that many restaurants Capri. Next time I would go for the views (especially to the 'other side' of the island), the philosoper's garden and a drink but would probably eat in a simpler place.

“Amazing view + great food = incredible experience.”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

One of the best views in Anacapri is from your table at Da Gelsomina. It overlooks an amazing coastline and the restaurants own wine vineyard. It's truly stunning. The food is just as good as the view. The raviolis are "to die for" as in if you had the chance you'd eat these until you exploded. No exaggeration. The dessert cakes are also a must.

“Stunning view, food mediocre”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We was picked up by a shuttle bus to a restaurant with the most spectacular view over the ocean and the most beautiful sunset! Unfortunately did the food not really live up to our expectations though to all reviews on trpiadvisor. The starters: grilled octopus and seafood salad was okey but the main courses was not that good. The seafood risotto was just cocked rice with a little amount of seafood, and the most expensive meet dish was a dissapointment: tasted burnt and really hard to chew. We also had a pasta with Gorgonzola that had no taste of cheese and a pasta with smoked cheese and zucchini which easy the best dish of them all. The restaurant makes their own wine and the white wine was alright but not the best of Italian wines.. The staff and service was good but overall it was not our best dinner we've had. We paid just under 200 euro for four starters and main corses, two bottle of wine and three espressos.
The shuttle service and the view and sunset is worth it though..
