The best ice cream we tried on the island. I was amazed to see the cone made in front of me and it was still warm when handed over. Lots of choice for flavours. It's worth the wait even if there's a short queue.

While the gelato can taste great to others, it is definitely not to my taste and very overpriced. I look for fruitiness and freshness to gelato and I find the gelato here too similar to the American-styled ice cream with loads of milk and cream. Therefore, if you guys share a similar taste as me, please seek for another one,... More

Visited this location during a recent trip to Capri based on recommendations from several locals. I must admit that they were right...this was the absolute best gelato!!! I also had the opportunity to sample some of their pastries and they too were delicious. Further, the staff were quick, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend to any and all travelers...

I came here with my wife and her parents, and my baby girl, following the good reviews. We took a couple of cookies, a sfogliatelle, a canolo, and a ricotta pear pastry.. cookies were nice, but other pastries were excellent. Highly recommended if you're in capry and want to treat yourself..

I absolutely loved the fresh waffle cones and they are so tempting that I could stand there and just keep eating them. They also have an amazing selection of desserts. A must try.

My husband and I spent some time in Capri in October 2016. I was craving some type of pastry or something bread like as I was still queasy from our boat trip. We came across this little pastry shop, Buonocore Gelateria. First off, when we walked in, no one said anything to us, or even acknowledged us being there. Personally,... More

The gelato was excellent. The person greeting was warm and friendly, but when we tried to sit outside, someone else came up and said no. Apparently, if you want to sit down, the price is doubled for whatever you order, i.e., espresso, gelato, etc. I have also experienced this in Pisa. Since the gelato was so good, this wasn't a...

I didn't end up trying the ice cream at Buonocore, because I ate too many of their fantastic lemon cookies. Seriously, you have to try them. Don't wait in line at the ice cream bar, go inside and look around - so many types of amazing desserts in there! My boyfriend's favourite was the pistachio cookie but hear me out,... More

We got to Capri and we saw most of all the beautiful sights that the isle had to offer. We were told that if we were to do ourselves one favour on the isle, that would be to go and have an ice cream from this particular icecreamy. We thought that it would be just a normal place, but, were... More
