Da Gelsomina

Da Gelsomina Review

Amid its own terraced vineyards with inspiring views to the island of Ischia and beyond, this is much more than just a well-reputed restaurant. The owner's mother was a friend of Axel Munthe and he encouraged her to open a kiosk serving hot food, which evolved into Da Gelsomina. Specialities include Pollo a mattone, chicken grilled on bricks, and locally caught rabbit. It has an immaculately-kept swimming pool, which is open to the public for a small fee—a buffet is served as you lounge here. Close to one of the island's finer walks as well as the Philosophy Park, it's an excellent base for a whole day or longer. There's also a five-room pensione, with free transfer service by request from Anacapri center.
