While parking our vespas at a gas station in town, I asked the friendly attendant for advice on the best non-touristy restaurant. He gave me a phone number to call, and, next thing I know, we are being picked up in a van by Pasquale. After driving us the ten minutes to the estate, he gave of a tour of the grounds and then served us a truly fantastic meal. It was hands-down the most delicious and authentic cuisine we had on our 2-week trip. Incredible place! Incredible views!

During our 10-day trip thru Rome, Capri, and Positano, our lunch at Da Gelsomina this was the best meal we had during our entire trip. The food, wine, service, and atmosphere were all outstanding. The house white wine was delicious; the homemade pasta dishes were extremely flavorful; the service was very attentive; and, the atmosphere was great. Cannot overstate how much we enjoyed our meal! Definitely going back again!

Found this place accidentally and our pick up driver drove in the narrow, uphill roads of Anacapri to get to this amazing family run restaurant in the countryside. Walked around the quite garden with the dramatic scenic of the lighthouse and Faraglion. Had delizioso dinner made with ingredients harvested in the garden served with the homemade organic grape stomp wine overlooking the most peaceful and breathtaking view of the Mediterranean and the Vineyard. One the best experiences of our trip. Highly recommend this place.

Da Gelsomina is a treasure, in more ways than one. Owned and run by a family, it's a beautiful place and they served the most delicious Caprese Salad I had in five days on Capri. I also had the mussels in a lemony sauce, divine! Friendly service on a patio with stunning water views. Before or after your meal, stroll around the property. There's a lovely walk with even more gorgeous views! And a surprising little park. If you only eat at one restaurant on the island, make sure it's here.

We love Capri, not the tourist section which is over run by day trippers but the island in October when it quiets down a bit. Beautiful walks, crystal clear water still warm enough to swim and family run restaurants like Da Gelsomina. What a beautiful experience this was. From the time we were picked up by the restaurant's shuttle bus in the Anacapri square to the time we were dropped off again, it was pure joy. Scuttling along the back streets of Anacapri seeing where the locals live, to sitting down in the most beautiful room for lunch overlooking the sea, it was wonderful. The food is seriously delicious, "buonnissimo" as they say. The family make all their pastas, cure their meats into salamis, make their own wine, grow their own vegetables. We fell in love with the place.....what a great family business. I hate to use the word 'business' as it's more a way of life for this family, the love they put into everything shows! I will always go back to this restaurant when I visit as it is special, unique. We spent 2 plus hours here of pure joy, the joy you experience over a leisurely lunch of beautiful food, wine and the lovely company of one's family. But make sure you book, as it was full by the time we left. One thing more, no two. Make sure you walk down past the Philosopher's park to the lookout. Simply stunning!!!! And checkout out their accommodation, they have a few rooms where you can stay. Thankyou to the beautiful family at Da Gelsomina....Bruno, Louise and Natalie from Australia.
