A place to stop over for the afternoon ice cream. You can choose from around 15 tastes and eat it sitting at the bench outside.

We were not heading for this gellateria but everyone did so when in Lecce... The only thing stopping me from giving them a higher rating is they were short on fruit flavors. The coffee and chocolate were fantastic as was the cone!

Bought gelato here on the basis of Tripadvisor comments and we were not disappointed. The ice-cream was very good value, a medium 'coppa' piled high was €2.50. We tried coconut, hazelnut, and Ferero Rocher, all of them, including to our surprise the latter, were delicious. Definitely recommend.

The best gelateria AND yogurteria at the town!? Visited many times, they beat Natale at tastes in my opinion, and staff very attentive, too!

Different varieties of ice cream for a good price, though there's a line outside the little store if you want to have ice cream after dinner.
