Second time at this place with close to 20 years in between; they continue delivering at the same high quality, freshness and deliciousness. The fruit flavors taste super fresh, natural, and flavorful; but nothing beats the contrast of an instant-made warm waffle cone to hold...More

Visited here based on the reviews and although we almost left because of the long queue, we hung around. And definitely worth it. The cones are made fresh in front of your eyes and the ice cream is rich, creamy and delicious.

The locals will tell you this is the place for gelato on Capri and they are right. I have had better gelato in Rome but for a small island - this gelato is very good and it’s the best you will dine here. They also...More

Buonocore is well known for its ice-cream, and it might take 20 minutes to buy one sometimes after dinner. But there is much more than that, you can buy traditional Southern Italy sweets (memorable the Sicilian Pasta di mandorle). A place to go

Walking down the streets , shopping and enjoying ourselves we stopped here as they claim them have the best gelato on the island. We argued if the coffee or the chocolate was the best.

Since the island is known for its lemon, we decided to go for the lemon sherbet and orange sherbet in a waffle cone. The sherbets were definitely the best we ever had. The lemon flavor was intense and fesh tasting, so was the orange.

We followed many others to this small window serving the well reviewed ice cream selection. Yes the waffles were still warm and freshly-made. The ice cream selection was certainly smaller than at some other Italian ice cream parlours we have enjoyed. The two ices we...More

Go there if you want to try the real and best Italian gelato. There is always line, and it is a little pricy but it worth every single euros.
