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

We came here for an evening icecream in the new enourmous new built ice cream and patisserie. Yes the cakes and icecream are fantastic but the service at the table was awful. The only waiter was arrogant and more interested to move away the people eating "take away" icecreams on the "waiter service" tables on the terrace. Next time I... More

Full of people and life altough it was 22.30 a Tuesday, Lovely tastes, nice effort and fantasy on every tiny detail. Highly recommended for both the ice creams and the cakes! As always you cannot pay with credit card due to "bad connecton", "temporary error" etc.. typical Italian.. Only cash!

Some of the best ice cream we've had. The terrace faces a fabulous view of the Adriatic Sea and one of the most beautiful beaches on the Salento peninsula, which we used to walk off the lucious ice cream. Our only regret was that they did not serve lunch or dinner.

Pasticceria Denotoni is well known among Lecce people for its gelato and pasticceria...it is something you can't miss if you are on holidays on this side of salento (adriatic sea). The bar is close to the main beach of Torre dell'Orso and is managed with passion by the family from many years...it is worth a visit or two.

This was the best gelato I tried in Salento, and I had a lot of gelato there. The espresso was also surprisingly good.

This is a really first-class example of Italian & Salento pride in their produce. The ice-cream here is delicious, tasty and unforgettable. Coffee packs a mean punch as well. Their cake display in the new outlet (by the beach steps) is worth a look. Also worth mentioning is the effort Dentoni's make to provide non-dairy soya alternatives. Cornetti have been... More

I go to Torre Dell'Orso every year, and for the other 50 weeks of the year I dream of those warm cornetti filled with nutella or cream - just out of the oven - served with a creamy espressino. It's the perfect place to breakfast before the beach. The fridges are filled with cakes, canolli, desserts of all types and... More
