We stopped here after a long hike along the Capri coast. We had sandwich's and drinks, which were good. Service was very good. Nice outside seating, fun to people watch on the little side street. Fun shopping all around the cafe.

Not sure about the mixed reviews we really enjoyed the gelateria. Just had gelato and sampled many flavors and enjoyed them all. We are from the USA so perhaps we were just mesmerized.

To us it was worth it and would go again. Not sure why folks think its a rip off but fresh gelato was worth the price. just try to assimilate like the locals and enjoy

I tried the Bar Galetaria again as i was walking past every night for 3 weeks after my first horror experience.

Maybe cos its the end of the season but i have been completely ripped off again .

This place is the worse place in Capri avoid like the plague .

The service is disgusting !!

Egr. Sig. Sveeney,
la ringraziamo per aver dedicato ancora una volta tempo ad esprimere i vostri pensieri e opinioni circa la Vostra visita al Bar Gelateria Embassy, il nostro obbiettivo e' sempre quello di servire un prodotto di ottima qualità ed un servizio impeccabile, ma nel suo commento notiamo sopratutto di una vostra visita effettuata nel mese di novembre!!! le comunichiamo che la nostra attivita' ha chiuso il 30 ottobre 2013 per riaprire il 1 aprile 2014!!! il Bar Gelateria Embassy rimane aperto solo sette mesi l'anno anche perché Capri e' una meta turistica estiva. Forse sara' andato in un altro locale?!! E poi ci domandiamo come si puo' ritornare in posto che si ritiene caro per le proprie valutazioni!!! Comunque siamo sempre rammaricati della eventuale vostra delusione e speriamo che in una prossima visita a Capri possiamo conoscersi di persona. L'invito per offrirla una delle nostre specialità e' sempre valido...
Cordiali saluti

We were lucky enough to be on Capri for a week and were able to sample the gelato at almost every store that sold it. Believe me, pass them all by and head straight to Via Camerelle to get it here! The owners are scientists and artists; we attended a gelato making demonstration and can attest to their meticulous care and attention to using the finest ingredients. The gelato is superb; the best we tasted in all of Italy, and the service was excellent. Our children will never feel the same about regular ice cream!

BE VERY CAREFUL OF THIS PLACE. we stopped there for a gelato one night. A storm had passed through and left a good amount of capri without lights. we asked if we could sit and have our small gelato cups rather than walk in the dark. we had hoped the lights would come on in a few minutes. After about 5-7 minutes we went to pay and leave. They charged us 20 euros for 2 small ice creams! THAT IS LIKE $30! They insisted we pay the "table fee" for the 5 minutes. would have called the police to make us pay. what a rip off. STAY AWAY!!!! Better places for gelato. I can understand a table cover charge if we sat for an hour. there was only 1 other couple in the place and all we had were 2 small ice creams.

Egr. Sig. Rich,
la ringraziamo per aver dedicato tempo ad esprimere i vostri pensieri e opinioni circa la Vostra visita al Bar Gelateria Embassy, il nostro obbiettivo e' sempre quello di servire un prodotto di ottima qualita' ed un servizio impeccabile, ma nel suo commento notiamo che Lei non e' rimasto contento, le chiediamo comunque scusa, ma le faccio notare che purtroppo, soprattutto per chi non e' abituato nel proprio paese, che in Italia abbiamo diversi prezzi per le consumazioni consumate in piedi o al tavolo, il prezzo del tavolo e' maggiorato indipendentemente dal tempo che si sta seduti, per quanto riguarda il prezzo le faccio notare che 10 euro per una coppa di gelato, sopratutto di primissima qualita' come il nostro, non e' superiore di altre gelateria sia a Capri che in altre localita' turistiche importanti Italiane, infine per quanto riguarda la eventuale chiamata della Polizia, credo che il nostro personale attento e professionale non si sarebbe mai permesso di dirlo neanche. Comunque siamo rammaricati della vostra delusione e speriamo che in una prossima visita a Capri possiamo conoscerci di persona per chiarire e per poterla offrire una delle nostre specialita'
Cordiali saluti
