“excellent gelato”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

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.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

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

“One stop ice-cream & coffee heaven”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

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 highly praised in other reviews and, happily, I can't contradict them but wholeheartedly agree!

“The best Pasticceria and ice-cream in the world!!”
Reviewed September 7, 2011

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 goodies galore. The ice-cream is so delicious people can hardly speak as they try to eat it before it melts in the hot Salento sun. Every flavour tastes exactly as it should. In 6 years, I still haven't tasted them all. The bar service is great, although it can be a bit of a jungle on the customer side of the counter at certain times of the morning but it's worth it, and all the staff are quick, helpful, efficient and friendly.
Dentoni's really is like a Pugliese Willy Wonka!! I hope to be back next summer!
