It's 30c and 2 AM and you want a gelato? They're open!

It brings a taste of Milano to a cruddy beach resort... chic and brilliant, lovely beach views day and night. It is the commanding spot in a lovely holiday location, if a little "affolata" as they say i.e. the beach suffers from its popularity and fame, but the gelati at Dentoni are incomparable!

The "Aperitivo" portions are plentiful, and from the terrace there is a magic view. The place is clean and tidy, and the desserts are tasty

Great pasticceria with a wonderful view of the bay; coffee and cappuccino at top level; great choice of sweets to eat; gelato was fine; i suggest you take your food at the counter and then carry it at the table (service is somehiw slow as the place ia always busy!)

We have been visiting Torre dell'Orso for years and remember when there was no restaurant here. It is very modern, and clean. Lots of seating inside or outside. The basic food served is gelato, pastry and cofee and drinks ... which is pretty all one wants when they are at a beach. As others have said the staff is not... More

And the pastries and cakes looked divine too. This place has a balcony outside with umbrellas, overlooking the beach, and the option to stay inside with air conditioning at the bar. When we arrived the place was a buzz! Around lunchtime it was a little calmer.

The range of gelato and pastries was very good. The staff were rude and grumpy which was a shame. They looked like they didn't want to be there.

A very modern coffee bar with a super terrace overlooking the beach. Sells great ice cream and superb cakes. It is very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. A pleasant place to sit and while away the hours.

Excellent cornetto and very good ice-cream. The staff is kind and they take time for you even when it's very crowded (almost always). Also their sweet biscuits are fantastic. And on top of it a wonderful view on the blue sea of Torre dell'Orso. You must have breakfast there!

My review is only 'very good' because of gelato, that is for sure not the best in the world or salento. But the cornetto is outstanding. The pastry is so thin and the custard is 95% the weigh of the entire cake. This is HOW A CORNETTO SHOULD BE MADE. I come from the north-east of italy and it's simply... More
