...and ended up having that and an almond granita and a slice of torta caprese to kill a bit more than an hour while awaiting my ferry to return to Sorrento... one of the best spent hours lately and a sure come back when in Capri again...

Like many day visitors, when we got off the ferry we wandered around the Marina area first to see what was available. Mostly it was waiters trying to lure you in for an early lunch or drink before they lost you to the main attractions elsewhere on the island. We fancied an ice cream and this was the only obvious...

I ordered limoncello sherbet and it was real limoncello. Very refreshing and relaxing to have it while looking at the Marina Grande. I wish though they had more seats.

The gelato was delicious too bad they won't let you taste, reason why we stuck with the things we know! The lady speaks english which is a plus.

We had the lemon granite & a gelato. Frankly I find in most commercial places in Italy, u really have to know where to get authentic gelatos since most parlors don't sell them (we had the best gelato in a small town called Pieve di Cadore, on our way to the Dolomites - now that was authentic for sure!) It... More

For a moment I thought it would be exceptional, but I guess it can be described as adequate or ok ice cream. I guess Italian ice cream is a bit over-rated. However, it comes nice after a boat trip circling the island.

This place seems to be the only gelateria in the main marina area of Capri. We want there as it looks ok form outside. We had two lemon gelatos (lemone and lemon with skin). Both were bad. One was partly ice and the other was so sour I refused to eat ice cream for the first time I can remember.... More

A fine gelato place. There is very strong competition in the gelato space. Most Italian gelato is excellent. This place is excellent but nothing exceptional.

Thank Jabrd
