Beautiful modern building, with the most scrumptious cakes and pastries and the best coffee ever. Excellent service.

We were driving around coastline and tried to find a place for lunch. We were attracted by the gorgeous view to the sea. However the lunch was big dissapointment. We noticed right away that this place wasn't good for lunch because the menu was full of sweets, ice cream and drinks. However we decided to stay as there were some... More

Torre dell'Orso is not a pretty place although the beach itself is beautiful. Dentoni stands out not just in the town but in Puglia and Italy as a whole. It really is that good. The staff are polite and helpful and seem genuinely enthused when going about their business. If you can find a reason to come to Puglia, come... More

We have been here for a gluten free meal, we have fund a wild range of delicious GF cakes. The staff is polite, but the service is very slow even if there was only a few people to serve. The GF "rustico" was not good as expected.

Our hotel in Otranto told us about this place so we detoured especially to have an ice cream. It is set just below street level so you don't see it until you walk down a few steps and this huge pasricerria and Gelateria is before you. It looks out over the sea so the view is very nice. They have... More

cakes are amazing, ice cream is amazing, coffee is amazing, the view is amazing.. just parking is a bit of a nightmare. Dentoni is a compulsory visit if you are nearby, it doesn't matter much what time of the day. Just few reccomendations: mornings : have the pasticciotto (simple one, with custard cream) during the day: Ice Cream late afternoon/evenings:... More

Our apartment in Torre dell'Orso was 400 meters from Detoni. We went the first night for a cocktail on the beach and then at least once a day for breakfast and then ice-cream too. One of the best if not the best Pasticcerias I have been to in Italy.

Vegan ice cream at its best. I could just stand in here and look at all the beautiful patisserie. I had a chance over a number of days to try a number of the delicious ice creams. They are made with a number of things rice, soya, olive oil. So they can suite all food needs. They do many non... More

It brings a taste of Milano to a cruddy beach resort... chic and brilliant, lovely beach views day and night. It is the commanding spot in a lovely holiday location, if a little "affolata" as they say i.e. the beach suffers from its popularity and fame, but the gelati at Dentoni are incomparable!

The "Aperitivo" portions are plentiful, and from the terrace there is a magic view. The place is clean and tidy, and the desserts are tasty
