I highly recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner. The sunset from here is amazing.
The food was excellent (fresh fish and pasta).
The staff were very nice and had great recommendations.
We booked through our hotel here and took the shuttle service from Anacapri Piazetta to get here.

My husband and I did a day trip to Capri as we were staying in positano. I booked gelsomina from the ferry and knew nothing about it other than it came recommended. We very nearly returned to positano without leaving marina grande because it resembled what I imagine bedlam to look on like. We persevered and shared a taxi to anacapri. We wandered around the little town and then caught the shuttle to the restaurant. There was lots of confusion but we got there. If you're a stickler for time keeping and go with the flow isn't in your nature then perhaps find somewhere in town. Communication isn't their strength. The food was amazing and some of the best we've had on the amalfi coast compared with three Michelin star restaurants we've beeen to. View was stunning, only Italian families in the restaurant and the food was fantastic. I had the octopus carpaccio and my husband had the shrimp carpaccio to start followed by lobster pasta (gluten free). It was half a lobster, succulent, meaty and wonderfully fresh. If you like your food and not bothered about blue grotto and hitting the touristy spots, then take your time here, enjoy the food, fantastic views and relaxed atmosphere.

We were looking forward to having dinner here, having made a reservation months prior, but seriously let down by the disappointing free shuttle service provided. Pickups are at the parking area at Piazza Vittoria in Anacapri. We had called the restaurant earlier to arrange for transport at a set time, but turns out that it is more a first-come-first-served service regardless of when you arrive. We learnt this the hard way when we could not get onto TWO of the transport vans. This was coupled with several calls to the restaurant, but alas we were unable to even make it in time for sunset and hence abandoned dinner. There should be a priority for restaurant guests who have reservations and have arranged for transport. Otherwise, the nature of the shuttle service should be made clear from the very beginning. This incident absolutely ruined our evening.

We were on a 18 day tour with friend and family across Italy. Obviously we had an opportunity to experience several restaurants during this time! Da Gelsomina came highly recommended for its sunset view. While the sunset view was OK, the restaurant had not window covers to protect you from the blinding sun before the view becomes enjoyable. I was the unfortunate one to sit staring at the sea and for couple of hours I had to endure the blinding sunlight.

The food was average, service was below average, and the view was OK but not worth putting up with the heat and the sunlight.

What annoyed us the most was, it cost us $90 dollars to transport our party of 8 to Anacapri from Capri. This is in addition to the expensive meal cost. So if you are staying in Capri, it may not be worth the drive to Anacapri for this restaurant.
