Via Salvatore Trinchese 7, 73100, Lecce, Italy
This famous gelateria and pasticceria, just off the main square in Lecce, is a must-visit for lovers of home-made ice cream and pasticcini di mandorle (small almond biscuits).
Natale’s pastry counter is filled with tarts, cakes, biscuits and ice cream with flavours ranging from the conventional chocolate, coffee and pistachio to the creative panacotta or mille-feuille. They also make the local favourite pasticciotto — a Lecce pastry filled with custard cream.
The multitude of flavours and toppings will make even the healthiest eater euphoric. pasticciotto – a deliciously buttery, crumbly short crust pastry filled with sweet thick lemon cream – that is a speciality of the region.
