5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

No need to go anywhere else if you want great gelato. Natale is simply the best.

“Best EVER ice cream, fantastic pastries and sweets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2011

I didn't count how many varieties of ice cream this place has, but it's a LOT !! All the ones I tasted were delicious. Also bought a box of pastries for our hosts, and was very pleasantly surprised at the price. Service great for a place that does a very brisk trade.

“Dreamy ice cream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

We went to Natale every day of our visit to Lecce (one day we went twice!). It is just off the large square with the amphitheatre (Piazza Sant'Oronzo). We loved the ice cream. My votes for the best flavours go to pistachio and any of the chocolate flavours. Rich, creamy, and delicious!

“Good Ice Cream by English standards but a bit tasteless”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We bought an Ice cream in this bar which was OK but lacked taste especially the chocolate and coffee flavors.

I have had many better ice creams all over Italy so although the price was good and the competition was no better as far as we could tell I still keep thinking back to Giolitti in Rome as the reference point. Sorry Pasticcieria Natale, you came well short of that!!

“Best Gelato in Lecce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2010

There are lots of places to get gelato in Lecce. Natale is by far the best. Try the pistacchio. My girlfriend loved the mocoa.
