Great for desert.

Our hotel in Otranto told us about this place so we detoured especially to have an ice cream. It is set just below street level so you don't see it until you walk down a few steps and this huge pasricerria and Gelateria is before you. It looks out over the sea so the view is very nice.

cakes are amazing, ice cream is amazing, coffee is amazing, the view is amazing.. just parking is a bit of a nightmare. Dentoni is a compulsory visit if you are nearby, it doesn't matter much what time of the day. Just few reccomendations: mornings : have the pasticciotto (simple one, with custard cream) during the day: Ice Cream late afternoon/evenings:... More

Our apartment in Torre dell'Orso was 400 meters from Detoni. We went the first night for a cocktail on the beach and then at least once a day for breakfast and then ice-cream too. One of the best if not the best Pasticcerias I have been to in Italy.

Vegan ice cream at its best. I could just stand in here and look at all the beautiful patisserie. I had a chance over a number of days to try a number of the delicious ice creams. They are made with a number of things rice, soya, olive oil. So they can suite all food needs. They do many non... More

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.
