“Outstanding cornetto”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

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 impossible to find a dentoni-style cornetto in this area, where you always must eat the same old brioches with some spots of custard in the middle.
They know the are BIG so the service is a little bit disappointing.

“Very good icecream but awful service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

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 will have a take away ice cream too. Cheaper and no arrogant waiter who was more suitable to a traffic warden job!

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2013

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!

“Decadent ice cream with a view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

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.

“excellent gelato”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
