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

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.
